Picked up a nice, used 1187 Premier Skeet. The bolt was a little difficult drawing back and a stip down showed that one leg of the link was broken. Rest of the gun was filthy so took the opportunity to give it a good clean whilst waiting for a new link and ordered a piston kit as well.

So, got the parts back, fitted them and the bolt is still difficult to draw back! Once locked open, and the carrier is pressed to release the bolt, it remains in the locked position with the carrier in the up position. A forward press on the bolt handle closes the bolt. It feels like the bolt is being impeded by the trigger group.

I took the trigger group out of the receiver so I could see if it was the new link. It’s not. The bolt moves back and forward freely and the link performs as it should. Looking at the trigger group, it doesn’t look as if anything is out of place with it but it seems that the bolt cannot be dragging on anything else. I can’t see what is impeding free bolt movement when the trigger group is in place, so any ideas? Anyone else had anything similar?

Have you shot it and does the issue exist then?   Manually check a Remington semi-auto is not the same as shooting it.   I think there will be no issue once you get it on the range.  If there is then give me a call as I am factory certified on the 11-87 and can try and help you find the issue.   These guns are a bugger to diagnose as there are multiple causes for each issue but I love getting to the root cause of an issue.  Better then doing puzzles and easier then figuring out women but still difficult some times.   Number is 231-690-0954 and any time is fine but between 10am and 10pm EST is best.

Thanks JD!

No, I haven’t shot it yet. I have fun some cartridges through it manually, fairly forcefully, and it “cycled” them fine. Unfortunately I don’t know anyone else with an 1100/1187 to try their trigger group. Currently the trigger mech is partially stripped just to be sure.

I know I shouldn’t worry about it if it runs reliably when shot, but, if it’s not right, it will bother me!

Hopefully I’ll be able to hit the clay range next week and try it out. But sorry to say, my confidence isn’t high. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Best case is it works fine and shoots in and you trust it again.   Worst is a new Trigger and I have them on the store but that is a last resort as there can other issues but won't know till you get some rounds through it.
