Remington 11-87 Super Magnum
 
I recently bought a BRAND NEW Remington 11-87 Super magnum. It has been working like crap since I got it. Finally figured out why it was jamming and got it fixed. Now the shells wouldn't eject from the magazine tube, so I took the gun apart and when I took the trigger assembly out a slightly curved rail fell out and the bolt is stuck back. Does anyone know how to fix this?? I can't figure out how it goes together.

I got the bolt unstuck but still cant figure out how to put the other piece back in.

Take it to a smith and then download a manual for it for the simple stuff like cleaning and next time don't fiddle with what you don't know anything about!

There are two that fit your description but Google 1187 diagram and I got this link

http://www.mcclellandgun.com/Gunsmit...1187Parts.html

If it is #56 (link) that slides and fits behind the bolt and the end pushes down on the return spring mechanism which is in the stock or it might be part # 39 which is the feed latch and that snaps into the side of the receiver. This is usually peened in but can pop out do to a poor side stamp.

Or as TG said take it to a gunsmith.

I already have the manual for the 1187 and 1100. I was going to take it to the smith that I bought it from but he is located in the back of a grocery store and the gun was loaded. I was not about to walk into a store with a loaded gun. it had to be taken apart to unload.

***That's funny! I can see the people hitting the floor as you walked in, but how do people take stuff in to the guy if they all have to go through the store to get to him in the back? Nobody would know whether a gun is loaded or not if it's in a case and I would just assume you wouldn't walk in with it out in the open and it sounds like quite a unique setup to say the least! Couldn't you have gone in first and either told them what the deal was or asked the guy to open a back door for you?

TopGun--- I had taken it back one time before and when you walk in the bolt just has to be open. I don't use cases. haha No Problem anymore though! I got it figured out, so now she is back into one piece and goes boom. Just have to get the original problem fixed. The shells still wont eject from the magazine tube.

I'd take it to a gunsmith
I have beat the crap out of my 1187 for years
if it won't pick up the next shell from the magazine tube then you need a smith as that sounds like a shell extractor adjustment

Slayer11 01-10-2014 06:13 PM

Thanks! It will be seeing the from where it came. Then Maybe back to remington

Bbj270 01-10-2014 06:22 PM

If it was brand new you shouldn't messed with it and called remington. If if a smith or you tinkered with it the warrant my be voild.

***Good comment and especially since he didn't have any idea what he was doing.

To the OP---Are you saying you can carry that shotgun uncased in a vehicle in Ohio. You sure can't up here in MI, but out in Wyoming you can have an uncased gun with one in the chamber right in the front seat!

***Don't doubt that at all! It's one of those "guy things" where the last thing we do is read directions when there are parts left over or we can't figure something out, LOL!

Yes you can carry any gun uncased in ohio. The only law that i know of is that it technically just have to have the chamber opened.

That is a good point. But as I said previously I had to disassemble it to unload the gun. I'm not an idiot. I have taken guns apart before so it wasn't a matter of not knowing what I was doing. It is fixed now.

***Sure didn't sound like it to us or you wouldn't have asked how to put it back together! I'm glad the matter is resolved.

I f you call rem they could have told you how to get the shells out that way they new of the problem then if they they said send it back they where aware of what you did.so.the warranty would not be void. It good.it is fix but if it was.brand.New remington should be made aware of the problem.

Slayer11 01-17-2014 01:54 PM

I finally got it back to the store and they shipped it back into Remington. Just so everyone knows.

I agree with this. My hunting buddy bought one to replace an old 1100 Magnum and this thing has had nothing but problems. It jams all the time. He ended up setting it in the gun cabinet and going back to his old 1100 Magnum which works flawlessly.

Bbj270 01-20-2014 04:04 PM

I have 3 1100 magnum. I put a steal shot barrel on my Turkey gun now I can shot low brass to 3" magnum with no problem. Some low brass federal shot shells you get at Wal-Mart will cycle in the other 2 with no problems.

Bbj270 01-21-2014 09:27 AM

My 26" steel shot barrel will run everything I tried in it. With the regulated 30" it would only run 3" nit even the 2 3/4 mag loads. To other to will run expect the low.brass every 4 or 5 times but not cycle another round.
