Any advice on what spare parts us 1100/1187 owners should ‘hoard’ in the coming months? I know you’re still waiting on Remington to re-stock some of your store items... what are the likely points of failure we need to be prepared to deal with if parts get scarce or our ability to buy gets interrupted?

Interesting thought. JD I feel your 1st instinct is to say "The best spare part for a 1100/11-87 is an 870" :-)

You sure know me well there CJ.

Owners of the 1100 and 11/87 should have the following on hand

Piston & Piston seal kit

Barrel seals (O-rings some call them)

Magazine Spring

Interceptor latch Spring

Firing pin retractor Spring

Extractor, Extractor Spring

Action Spring & Link

Those parts should keep you running and are all parts the user can replace.   Major brakeage would require advanced knowledge or a gun smith.

The best idea is to pick up a used 1100 or 11/87 in good shape, shoot it to make sure all is working well, clean it then put it away for spare parts in an emergency.  That is also a great excuse to buy another Shotgun [wink][wink]

Thanks for the list.  I’ll add those to the wishlist.  Any updates on when you expect the odds n ends to show up from Remington?

I have most of those parts but back orders are in the O-Zone as even my Rep who's been there 20 years doesn't know when orders will be filled.

You got that right Dude.   One of my wives got all upset when I bought a 10/22 back in the early 80's.  She insisted that I didn't need to spend money on another gun because I had three.  I explained one was a shotgun, one a revolver and one a 30-06 rifle and I did not have a .22.   She said a gun is a gun.   So I brought up that she 23 pairs of Jeans and Jeans are Jeans.   Even though it was Florida it was a little frigged for a few days.   A couple a month later I bought an Iver Johnson .380 Pony ( best pocket pistol I ever owned ) and when she saw it I simply said " You know this means you get to go Jean Shopping".   She just smiled and said " Good, we are going to Mall this weekend".  When married I always figured double on the price of any gun because she was going to get something.   I also figured it was better to be broke, have guns and a happy home then to have money and no guns.  So it was worth it.

While on the subject if anyone has an Iver Johnson Pony in good shape and they can bare to part with it, just give me a yell.
