Anyone else have an issue with shells not feeding properly? About every 3 rounds a shell will stop 2/3 of the way out of the magazine tube and the bolt will lock open. After studying the problem it appears the rim of the shell being fed is hitting the bolt release button which protrudes slightly above the carrier. (Competition model) I only have 50 rounds through this gun. I have never had a 1100 do that before. Just curious if this is a known issue.

I have been shooting, selling, and working on 1100s for 53 years, and that is a new one on me. I have seen a bent shell latch or sticking/broken interceptor latch cause the same result.
What could have happened... did.

I bought a 1100, 12 ga 2 3/4 inch gun the other day. It came with a 26 inch vent rib, Remchoke barrel. I decided to take it apart and clean everything since I just got the gun. I removed the mag cap and forend, then hit a brick wall. I pulled, yanked, twisted, and cussed & fussed trying to get the barrel off. It wouldn't budge. Finally I used a hard rubber hammer and pounded on the gas chamber to get the barrel to move. I cleaned the gun, including using some oiled 0000 steel wool to clean the barrel tang and inside the receiver. When I attempted to put the barrel back on it stopped when the area of the barrel with the cut out for the extractor entered the receiver. I had to use the same hard rubber hammer to force the barrel on, and back off again. I don't know what the problem is. This is the only barrel I have to try on the gun. I don't see anything out of round or bent. Anyone else had a stuck barrel and determined what the cause might be?
