    Hi guys. I recently inherited my fathers Remington 1100 shotgun and it came with some problems. The bolt hangs up and won't close as it should. I know a bit about some firearms, but know nothing about these, so I would like to find someone in the Seattle or surrounding area who is good with the 1100. Who would you recommend for this work? This shotgun has a lot of memories in it for me so would really like to get it taken care of. Thanks for your help.

    Shotguns are pretty simple.Take the poor thing apart and clean every part of it.( You tube if necessary) Probably not much but needs cleaning.
    And hey, then you'll know if something is broken and how to disassemble the gun.

    Thanks. Yes I have already done that and there are broken parts. The feed latch has become unstaked and carrier dog has one ear broken off. There may be more. I just need to find someone who can competently make these kinds of repairs.

    If you have a trap club nearby there should be a few guys who know how to or someone that could help.

    I know there is a good gun smith right behind the Boerner gun shop in Gorst (which is a mile south of Bremerton). That's the only one I know of. Give these guys a call and they can get you contact info for the gun smith.

    Thanks guys. I'll give them a call. Seems odd there is no good shotgun smiths in the Seattle area but I guess that may just be the way it is.

    I think you are underestimating yourself.If you can take it apart,and have some punches and a little peen,I mean hammer,you can probably change the parts.You should be able to get them from Brownell's or Remington.

    Or like blankman said,ask at the local shotgun range.
