  1. I had same problem with an old 101 for my son...6ft 4" with long arms The recoil pads for a Browning 725 are a near perfect fit...picked this tip up from USA website I bought a 1" 725 pad from ebay...easy fit, mounting holes did not line up but easy to mark through and redrill....hope this helps

    11-87 recoil pad

    The only 1187 with an original plastic pad is the Premier Skeet...all other models have a rubber pad..the model designation will be roll engraved on the side of the receiver Why cant you just find a Premier Field pad or even Premier Trap pad , these will swap straight over Possibly the stock has been changed from an 1100 as most of these have plastic pads as original...if so it will be curved and will need squaring up with a mitre saw Then again why bother , the Remmie is the softest shooting semi auto even with a plastic pad

    One for the techies

    I have always been led to believe the opposite of the above , i.e the longer the barrel decreases speed ... I am sure that i have read many times that around 24" barrel length is optimum for complete powder burn and then shot speed decreases due to friction of the wad and shot abrading along the barrel walls Blackpowder does need longer barrels for complete burn of powder

    Remington 1100 conversion to FAC

    Almost impossible to remove the crimp so that the pistons slide over smoothly on the outside and cartridges move smoothly inside the tube. Crimping stretches the metal and will not shrink back Cost wise , a new tube is not worth doing...they are silver soldered in , not screwed or pinned as previously suggested..soldering produces a lot of heat , hence the receiver bluing will be ruined and will have to be reblued..soldering also will require a jig to keep the barrel and mag tube in alignement.. More sensible would be to sell your gun and purchase an unrestricted 1100...fac 1100s are a lot cheaper than restricted 1100s

    steel shotgun cartriges

    Taken from the Remington help center https://www.remington.com/support/help-center Can I use steel shot in my shotgun barrel? We do not recommend the use of steel shot through any barrel manufactured before 1963 or through any barrel having a fixed Full choke. Anything larger would not perform well out of a fixed full choke and could open up your muzzle over time. If you have barrels manufactured after 1963, with fixed Modified or Improved Cylinder chokes, you may shoot up to size #2 steel shot. The use of steel shot larger than size #2 is only recommended in modern barrels with the Rem Choke system. If you have the Rem Choke system, you may shoot any size steel through the Improved Cylinder and Modified choke tubes. The Full choke tube must state "For Steel or Lead" to be capable of handling steel shot.
