      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Well, i have 2 rem 1100s, and 1 rem 1187. i don't really have a problem shooting 3 inches in any of them cause the barrel did say for 2 3/4 or 3". Might want to check yours. Plus i make sure i keep all my guns clean. But i'm not saying i haven't had any jams with them using 3 inches, but when i do i usually just spray some rem oil on it and it works like new. grin.gif (ALWAYS HAVE TO CARRY A BOTTLE OF REM OIL.... NEVER KNOW WHEN YOU GONNA NEED IT smile.gif....)

The reason why they made the rem 1187 was because the 1100 had problems with jamming. I have one of the 1100's they made the first couple years and it jams way too often to use, and its as clean as a whistle. If its an older 1100, before remington fixed the problem it will jam, no geting around it. Iv talked to many others with the same problem. I dont use mine anymore for that reason.

I have been shooting my 1100 for 20+ years and rarely have issue with jams. I only have limited issues with very little 2 3/4 trap loads or light reloads.

What has worked for me is to clean it after every use, I break the gun down completely (aside from knocking out the trigger - that is only done a couple times a year). After cleaning, I actually keep everything pretty dry inside especially on the sliding portions inside the gun forearm. My personal experience is that Rem oil gums up in cold weather and hinders the auto action. WD40 is what works for me and like I said - I have been shooting the same 1100 for 20+ years. Maybe I have just been lucky with my particular gun.

My dad has a 1100 that he bought used and he has had it for 13 years. He has only cleaned the inside 1 time. The metal arm? or deal that stops the next shell from coming in the spot weld broke so it's a b#$%% to get back together. He is very rare and I go as far to say maybe 1 or 2 times jammed. He just cleans it as best he can without taking it fully apart.

Remingtom made 30 million 1100s and it sounds like a few of you got one of the dozen or so that worked. At one point I had 3 of those expensive canoe paddle single shots. They are all long since gone. BUY Beretta!

The Rem 1100s are great guns. My family has 7 of them and none of them jam unless they have not been cleaned properly. Although close attention to the type and amount of lube used is important especially in cold weather. In regards to jamming 3" rounds goes, 90% of these guns shot 2 3/4" rounds only. Unless yours is a 1100 Magnum it's not designed to shoot 3" rounds. However, an exception would be if you have replaced the barrel with the new Rem 1100 barrels which you can shoot 3" steel in the non magnum guns. Clearances for ejection are tight though so I'd expect more jams with that set up.

30 million 1100s? I don't think so. The 1100 is considered one of the best autos ever made. The technology is a little out dated but they are still a fine gun.

Might be good to take a look and see what that 1100 is chambered for. I have a 3" magnum, and a 2-3/4-3. The mag will not eject some low base or lower charged shells but does fine with heavy loads.

I have one 1100 thats 2-3/4 to 3" and I dont believe this gun has ever jammed.

Sounds like a severe case of operator error IMO.
