Remington 1100 Ejection Problem

My dad's 1100 is having some cycling problems. The first shell is shot but will not eject and jams before allowing a 2nd shot.

He doesn't duck hunt anymore so I will eventually inherit it. I was looking in the Mack Prairie Wings catalog and came across the Sure Cycle Action System and was just wondering if any of you have had any experiences with Sure Cycle?

Just curious if this would fix the problem.

TIA

Not sure exactly what causes the problem, but I've heard it has something to do with the configuration of the metal rings that are under the barrel on the magazine tube that causes ejection problems.

I have 2 rem 1100's; a 12g that will not cycle at all and a 20g that will cycle any shell that I put through it. It's the weirdest thing I've ever seen.

Completely clean the gun. Take the barrel off and get a small drill bit and using your fingers spin the bit inside the gas ports. Replace the Rubber o ring and soak the stainless gas ring in cleaner and then slightly oil. When putting the stainless gas ring back on make sure the openings on the two rings are on different sides of the carrier.

Thats what I do. I have a custom competition 1100 and it gets cleaned completely after ever time I shoot it.

does it come partially out or is the shell still seated?

What are you shooting out of it that jams? High brass or low brass or both?

Regular steel shot for ducks, so high.

Stupid question, but have you cleaned it?

This. Steel shot is very dirty and those gas ports get clogged. Not that it's a guaranteed fix, but it's a likely and good place to start.

and not just wipe it down with a rag with Remoil on it. Have you completely broke it down and cleaned it really good?

Every 1100 I've ever fooled with was extremely reliable as long as it was something close to clean.

He said he's tried cleaning it. But I'm not sure how detailed his cleaning has been.

Guess I'll give it a thorough cleaning then look for solutions afterward.

If those ports under the barrel havent been cleaned in a long time then they are prolly close to being completely closed up and are prolly the biggest problem. Also that rubber ring can cause alot of problems if it hasnt been replaced in over a year.

Watch Youtube videos on disassembly. Clean every single thing on it. I break mine down to bare bones every 2 or 3 years and haven't ever had a FTE or FTF. Mine is 40yrs old and I shot it heavily 5-15 years ago. Not a lick of trouble ever and I would take it over any new gun on the market in a heartbeat.

Follow that to a T. I have heard that you can cheap out on the O-ring, but I wouldn't. Completely cleaning it means that afterwards, you can't take any parts off of other parts, not just wiping it down a couple of times

It could be something as simple as it wasn't put back together properly. That would cause it not to cycle correctly

My dad, a gunsmith, made darn good money by breaking down and thoroughly cleaning shotguns with ejector problems. Like the other poster said wiping it down with Rem oil is not really cleaning it.

Cleaning and low brass shells are usually the culprit on semi autos.
