I have a Remington 1100 that has a problem with the bolt while moving forward. It will sometimes jam just short of going into battery. I will then have to give it a good tap on the charging handle to get it unstuck. Any ideas? Thanks.
I should that this happens when manually releasing the bolt by depressing the carrier release as well as when firing.
I donít know the history of your 1100 as to whether or not you have the original barrel and if it isnít the original barrel maybe something is interfering with the bolt going fully into battery. Look for shiny places at the breech end of the barrel where it fits into the receiver inside and out. If you have another barrel put it on the gun and see if the bolts works.

As mentioned earlier, it was thoroughly cleaned. Checked the original barrel. Some peening where the bolt locks in but I did not find any obvious issues. I believe the problem may be a worn extractor. It appears that the extractor is hanging up on the edge of the barrel when it enters the extractor slot. Removed the extractor and have cycled the action numerous times with no jams. I ordered a new one and will post when I get it back together. Thanks guys.
