I was working on my 1100 yesterday and dropped it:eek:, the buufer tube broke off and after failed attempts with jb weld Im giving up. Anybody know where to get another receiver.

You shouldn't need to get another entire receiver; the action spring tube is just threaded into the back of the receiver, and a screw extractor should be able to get it out (if you can't clamp onto the broken piece with a wrench or vise); you can get another tube from Brownells ( http://www.brownells.com/aspx/ns/schematics/schemmfg.aspx?step=2&mfgid=12&mfgname=RemingtonĀ® )or Numrich ( http://www.e-gunparts.com/productschem.asp?chrMasterModel=0860z1100 )

The tubes are soldered in place.
You can get them from remington for about $50.00. if you don't want to look for someone to repair it for you i can.
Be carefull if you try this yourself, if the tube is not soldered corectly it will bind the action and the stock won't fit.

nope, the receiver assy is 6 pieces. action spring tube, receiver, barrel guide,interceptor latch stud, magazine tube and the extention guide.
It all comes apart and it can all be put back together with the correct jigs and silver solder.
We build some ofthe custom trap guns here in our shop for shooters that want a rib that really works for them and not the marketing department designed look-a-like one on a standard remington shotgun.

How do you get it off then?

There all silver soldered, it takes more heat to remove the tube than to install.
The silver solder melts at 1250 deg. so a oxy/acl torch is the only easy way to do it.
In the rear of the receiver there is a lip close to the inner part, that is the stop point for the tube.
Hopefully there is enough of a edge to grab when you heat it up, it's going to get hot enough to discolor the bluing a bit, go from the inside and heat evenly so you don't start cutting the receiver.
It's not an easy job but it can be done, the jigs we built will hold everything together so it is soldered at the same time, it takes 3 of us about 20 minutes to get one all together, not much fun.
