My friend, trade off or sell the Remington 1100. They’re NOT reliable, they’re actually quite fragile. Their gas system hinges on hair-thin rubber o rings, that cannot stand the smallest amount of sand or grit. Once you remove them to clean up the gas tube, etc, you’ll discover they CANNOT be re-installed, as they’re stretched and no longer seal. The gun becomes a single shot–I found out the hard way. Long out of production, parts for this gun are difficult to find, and pricey. If you’re not getting a Benelli or (maybe) a Saiga, stick with pumps. They don’t have fragile gas systems, like the 1100 (and most) other semi-autos. Good luck!
