Remington 1100 12 gage won't load a shell from the magazine

When I shoot skeet, my Remington 1100 12 gage ( 3 months old) won't load a shell from the magazine for shooting doubles. The fired shell ejects ok, but the new shell doesn't load in the chamber from the magazine. It just remains in the magazine. Up to this point, the gun has worked fine at the skeet range, but this problem has developed. I took the gun completely apart (triger assembly, etc.) and feverously kleened everthing so that it was pristine, but this didn't change anything.

Any suggestions?

There is a shell stop located on the inside left side of the action. that holds shells in the magazine . this might have broken loose stopping next shell from loading . if this has happened it is an ease fix .it probably has broken the staking loose .a gun smith can repair this in minutes .for around $20.00

Are you shooting very light load?
Have you tried different ammo?

Light loads may not produce enough energy to work the action properly.

If different ammo doesn't help, make sure the two holes inside the barrel ring are clean and gas from the barrel can pass through. Next I would check the o-ring for cracks. If you shoot lots of shells (competition clays) the recoil springs inside the stock or over the magazine tube may have become weak and need replacing.

    I personally know the problem. It is not the loads or the spring. I got a used 1100 and it quit releasing shells from the loading tube also. The shell release finger should only hold the shell by less then 1/16" so the when the notch on the slide bar comes back to push the release finger it will be pushed to the outside thereby releasing the shell into the chamber. In my case the release finger is being pushed inside the slide bar thereby not releasing the shell. Either get the release finger bent in some 1/32" or relace the release finger or/and the slide bar itself. What a pain! I havn't fixed it yet - I'll still mad about it. 90% sure it will fix your problem.

Magazine tube follower? Is it contained in the magazine tube?


The magazine tubes that I am familiar with had a sort of tube within a tube. (Old Winchester .22 pump)
To load you would push in, twist, and pull out the Inner tube, slide in a bunch of .22 long rifle shells (pointy end in the same direction as the muzzle), and then push the Inner tube back in place. Ther was an internal spring with a sliding cover that provided the "push" to move the shells into the loading mechanism when the pump was cycled.
If one of these parts has a technical name, Magazine tube follower sounds like it would be appropriate.
Hope this helps.

I bought a Remington 870 at Christmas time. The first time i shot it the shells are jamming in the gun. I took it home cleaned it and oiled it real good. Went and shot it again same problem. Either...


If the 870 is a Magnum model it should accept 3" shells. After making absolutely sure you have an unloaded shotgun, both chamber and magazine are empty, empty, empty, proceed with these few checks.

Assuming it may be a 2 3/4' model, have you double checked on the left side of the barrel near the receiver? There will be gauge and shell length stampings on the barrel. If you are jamming 3" shells in to a 2 3/4" shotgun you will get jams as you describe. Look at the empty shell casings if you have any and see if the shell appears to be damaged from the chambered and firing process. This could also indicate you have a improper shell length issue.
If you are shooting reloaded ammo make sure it has been properly re-sized, crimped and reloaded.
sloppy reloading of shotgun shells can cause jams as you describe. Improperly re-loaded shells can also cause leaks of bb's, (shot) in to the receiver and bore area.

Check for a loose bb. or bb's, (shot) in the receiver and chamber area. A lodged bb. in these areas will cause problems you have described.

Run your fingers along the barrel and visually check it for any slight bulge. If you detect or suspect a bulge do not shoot or load the shotgun until a gunsmith or the factory check the barrel thoroughly. If someone had loaded a 20, 16 or similar smaller guage shell in the chamber by accident and the gun was fired it will usually cause at minimum a stressed and bulged barrel. Many times a slight bulge in the barrel may not be visually obvious.

Most of the time if a 12 gauge shell gets loaded behind that one and fired you will have catastrophic failures, i.e. the gun can blow up and cause serious harm, blindness or even death in rare cases to the shooter. Shooters call this a "20/12" catastrophic failure. This type of accident is not to be taken lightly! this is why shotgun shells of different gauges are different in color normally.
Never ever, mix shotgun gauge shells in a pouch or box.

If you pump the shotgun too easily, (i.e. wimpy) it can jam up. Always pump, "rack" a shotgun with vigor. I'm not suggesting abusive action, just don't be slow or overly gentle with the pump action that ejects a shell and reloads the next one. Something related to this is if your action/slide bar is out of alignment or has become torqued out of it's proper alignment this will cause problems as you have mentioned. The action/slide bar is a long single piece of flat metal that is in alignment with the barrel and is attached to the front forearm of the shotgun. This is the flat piece of metal that actually makes the action open and close as you pump the shotgun. There is one on the left underside of the bore and forearm of the shotgun. When you pump the action you will easily observe it moving with your pumping action.

Check how the empty action feels to you. While dry-firing, (using an unloaded shotgun), does the action feel smooth or perhaps, gritty, sluggish, overly tight? If any of the later the you need to double check for debris, shot, excessive old lubrication, gumming of the action, a bent action/slide bar, etc. A normal 870 has a very smooth action.

Also, check the bore for any obvious nicks or obstructions that don't belong there. A good quality shotgun such as your 870 should operate best with very little lubrication. Excessive lubrication over time can cause gumming up of the receiver area. Also, improper lubrication products. Improper lubrication can cause problems you have described.

I am not a gun smith. I am simply an avid gun enthusiast. If you have any doubts as to anything that you observe while performing these basic checks on your shotgun, I strongly advise you to call the factory or take it to a local gun smith. Many gun shops will give your shotgun a courtesy check over and if you don't find a solution, many times they will within a few minutes. Do not be embarrassed to take the gun in to a gunsmith! Trust me, they will most likely treat you and you gun with respect and courtesy. Otherwise they won't be in business much longer.
If the gun shop fixes your problem make sure and purchase some shells and perhaps something else from them. We must support our small business firearms dealers and gun smiths

Hope this helps you!

How do you load a 12 gauge pump action Mossberg (500)? There is no magazine for it, but, is mag ready. How do you manually load?


The loading port is on the bottom of the reciever. You mention that it is "magazine ready"? Mossberg shotguns have a tublular magazine underneath the barrel, surrounded by the action bar and front grip.

Loading the magazine entails holding the shotgun in one hand, taking the shell in the other with the folded end facing the front end of the barrel. Place the shell in the magazine opening (on the bottom) and push it up with your fingers and forward with the thumb of the same hand. It will go completely forward of the silver/blue lifter and stay there when you let go. (the action must be closed to load the magazine).

Alternately, you can open the action and pop a shell into the ejection port on the right side, close it back up, and shoot!

You have a shell stop that is either bent or worn, I think there are 2 in there, would have to look. Go to Gunparts.com for the view and order parts, might find them on ebean. Hope th is helps.

My 870 Remington 12 ga. pump's barrel now moves about 1/8th inch or less but noticably side to side and is no longer a tight fit? Just noticed it last week as barrel moves by itself or when moved manually....


HELLO; Check and see if you have the barrel set into the receiver fully, and look at the receiver and see if it isn't split or the mag. hasn't become loose, I have two of these guns and Ive never had any problem like your discribing, but not to say it cant happen. PS make sure you retract the bolt before you insert the barrel in the receiver. GOOD LUCK....GREASY.
