Title says it all. I shoot a lot of low brass shells. The 1100 I have will not eject low brass. Anyone know of a way to make it eject the low brass?

20Ga 1100 LW

My wife shoots one and we have had no problems with it. I would replace the O ring if you haven't and give it a good cleaning. Low brass, including low steel have run without issue.

Yes, I replaced the O-ring, checked and cleaned the ports. Lubed it up, it’s very smooth.

Sometimes after you have done all the easy stuff move to other points 4 ought steel wool and gun oil on a 20 ga brush in the tip section of your cleaning rod. Chuck it up in your rechargeable drill and clean and polish the chamber. How long has it been since you pulled the butt stock off and pulled out the recoil spring from its housing and cleaned both ?

I was going to suggest BOTH of these options... do it and the gun cannot help but run.

Not a 20 ga but when I was shooting trap with an 1100, I was taught by the old guys to polish the surfaces where the o-ring works, down to bare metal, coat o-ring and surfaces with silicon lock tumbler lube, the stuff that evaporates. Old timers said never use petroleum oils in that area.I shot thousands of rounds with home loads that were below 5,800 LUP, that's low. Do not be influenced by a garage gunsmith that wants to cut a turn off the buffer spring...you will eventually hammer your action unto death.

Is this a 3" chamber gun? If so, you may need to enlarge the gas ports.

The gun is 2-3/4” chamber. I’m going through some details about the gun in the manual.

The Receiver is the LT20 model K receiver. Where would I find the barrel stamp? According to the “K receiver” it should have a 1.5” style barrel Extension. I believe this is the wrong barrel but I need some help. I think this is the 3.5” barrel extension.

I need some verification from someone who knows. If so I may be looking for a 1.5” barrel.

Thanks for any help.

I thought the LW's had the shorter barrel extension, similar to an 870 barrel. I also thought the LT's had the longer, 1100ish extension. I am out of town until Wed so cant verify that the LW has the shorter extension but bet that it does.
