Remington Premier 1100 Sporting No. 82846 2.75-inch 20 gauge

We loved the 1100 Premier’s fit and finish, the outstanding case, and the well-fitted Limbsaver pad. The aficionado will likely consider professional trigger work and aftermarket chokes to squeeze the potential out of the 1100. The 2.75-inch chamber will be a disqualifier for some shooters.

Since around 1963, the Remington 1100 gas system has been essentially unchanged. A look at the action shows semblance to the Remington 870 pump, with a metal housing over the magazine tube attached to a twin-action-bar assembly. The metal magazine tube housing (“action bar sleeve”) is driven backward by an O-ring “barrel seal” that tries to seal the exhaust gas against a pair of loose beveled washers that reside in front of action-bar drive. It is the O-ring, called the barrel seal by Remington, that is a sacrificial part. a captured O-ring wears very little. A free, dynamic O-ring as in the 1100 application can tear or wear very quickly. it’s a good idea to keep half a dozen O rings in your range bag, as your 1100 is unlikely to cycle well without one.
