Just got a Remington 1100 in 20 ga and I am having a hell of a time loading weak hand.

I have several Benellis and I am more familiar with the way the lifter is ‘free’ allowing me to load weak hand easily.

However, the Remington requires that you ‘push’ the bolt release to ‘free’ the lifter.

I guess I am looking for any suggestions on how I could improve this.

I have looked at DMW bolt release, but I am unsure if it will work on the 20 ga.

I have also been told that Remington makes a Competition Master Carrier Assembly, but all information seems to indicate that it’s for the 12 gauge only….any other suggestions other than ‘should have bought an M2 – I know, I know…’ welcome.

I would get some aluminum snap caps to practice with. After getting used to the procedure, it will seem second nature. I use the shell to push the button as I slide it into the magazine. It really is quite easy. Mark
