How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

Plugs are used in shotguns to limit the capacity of a tube magazine. A plug can be made of any material, but are most commonly made of plastic or wood. The plug must be measured and cut to a specific length which varies depending on the gauge and magazine length.

Produced since 1963, the 1100 is well known for helping to reduce recoil due to its gas-operated action, and for its reliability. . . most of the time.
Several variations of the series—in 12, 20, and 28 gauges, and . 410 bore—remain in contemporary production.
A magazine plug, usually made of plastic or wood, is inserted in the tubular magazine and limits the number of shells a shotgun may hold.
Pump action (sometimes called slide action): the shotgun`s forend or another handle is retracted by the shooter`s support hand, which opens the breech, ejects a spent cartridge, and when returning the forend to its forward position, chambers a fresh shell from the magazine.
The Shotgun Plug limits the number of rounds in the shotgun, a requirement when hunting in many states, and can be cut to any length. Plugs fit 12-, 16-, or 20-ga.

Final Thoughts. Remington has made plenty of quality guns over the course of its more than 200-year history. Though the 870 was more popular, the 1100 is one of the best shotguns in the Big Green stable.
1963 – Remington introduced the Model 1100 autoloading shotgun in 12-gauge Field Grade (with plain and vent-rib barrels), Magnum Duck Guns chambered for three-inch Magnum shells (with plain and vent-rib barrels), SA Skeet Grade, SC Skeet Grade, and TB Trap Grade models.
in non-magnum guns is being produced by Remington. shoot three-inch magnum lead loads with a non-magnum gun.
The Remington Model 870 shotgun is the best-selling gun in Remington history. Introduced in 1950 to replace the Model 31, it has been produced in a vast number of variants and is still in production. Versions have been made for military and law enforcement, as well as for the traditional sporting market.

Since most firearms are built for the American market, most shotguns come with a plug to limit your shotgun to three shots. If you don`t have a plug, one can be made from a wooden, plastic or fiberglass dowel.
** During almost all hunting seasons, it is illegal to have more than three shells in your shotgun. A plug, (guns often come with it in), is inserted into the magazine to prevent the gun from holding more than three but most can hold more than that without the plug in.
When the striking force applied to the ejector rod is hard and fast enough, the extractor will typically eject the empty case(s) from the cylinder. Some break-action shotguns are also designed to eject empty shells completely out of the chamber when the barrel is opened.
The extractor removes the cartridge case from the chamber, essentially pulling the case to the rear. At some point in the rearward travel, the case typically makes contact with the ejector, which “kicks” the expended case out of the firearm, making room for an unfired cartridge to be loaded.
No. It will be putting a lot more pressure through the gun than its particular configuration was meant to handle. The 1100 is not some tinker-toy, so its not like it would fall apart. You could probably shoot hundreds of slugs through it without issue.
The 1100 was first produced in 1963. According to Remington history it was designed by Wayne Leak and R Kelley. It was the first auto loading shotgun to utilize a gas cycling operation.
The Butler Creek shotgun plug fits most 12, 16 and 20 gauge pump and automatic shotguns chambered for 2-1/2″, 2-3/4″ or 3″ shells. It can be cut to the desired length to limit the magazine capacity to 2 rounds.
Common sizes and interchangeability

After the two common 5.5 mm OD (Outer Diameter) plugs, the next-most common size is 3.5 mm OD with a 1.3 mm ID (Inner Diameter), usually about 9.5 mm in length, although both longer and shorter versions also exist.

Your 1100 Full Choke Barrel is perfectly safe for STEEL SHOT.
The Remington 1100 is compatible with Remington style chokes only.
The 870 is chambered for 2 ¾” and 3” (70 & 76mm) cartridges, whereas the 1100 is only for 2 ¾” shells, but with the huge range of ammunition available today, this is not too much of a handicap, albeit a little surprising from a modern firearm.

I just purchased this Yamaha boat w/Twin MR-1 140hp motors, less than 100hrs (60 prox)and the starboard motor only reached 8000rpm on a 10000 redline spec (the port motor reaches 10000rpm. I have replaced the spark plugs immediatly and now the motor reaches 9500rpm. When the plugs were replaced the plug wire top of the plugs had a black powder residue (like graphite)and #1 & 4 plug electrode end were black minimal soot and #2 & #3 had a white color residue on the ceramic.

Any suggestions to attain the full 10000rpm?

Turned poulan pro 42 inch 18.5 HP Briggs and Stratton mower off after 1hr of use to move a board I was about to mow over. Tried to restart it but it just backfires. Removed spark plug and it looked fouled. Cleaned it up but when looking at spark it is orange in color. Bought new spark plug and now get white spark. Installed new spark plug and it still backfires. Plug is wet with gas. Any suggestions?
ANSWER : Check the valve clearances and especially the inlet valve to make sure that it is not riding (staying slightly open) B&S are notorious for valve problems as most of their motors do not have a valve adjustment on them, the valves stems have to be filed/ground down to get a clearance. Somewhere between 0.010 to 0.015″ is near enough for the inlets and about 0.005″ more for the exhaust. It is not critical.

Spark plug wire boot grounding out on coil, 96 outback 2.5 automatic, just put new spark plug wires, new spark plugs, and new coil on. ran great for two weeks, now spark is jumping out of boot at coil on one wire, put old coil back on and still does it in the same spot. replaced wires again, and still does it in the same spot. seems to do it only under a load. Is my new spark plug on that cylinder bad? Does the coil need some insulation under it? It is the coil that sits right on top of the motor. Any ideas? thanks.
ANSWER : Sparks are high voltage, and will always follow the path of least resistance. If you can visibly see a spark (whether in a lighted area, or in the dark), that means either that a plug wire (or coil wire) is open (non conductive), or your have a carbon track on the surface where the spark can be seen, but most likely you have BOTH problems!

If you have an ohmmeter, check the resistance of each wire involved, particularly spark plug wires … which means you must be able to connect to both ends of each wire at the same, and hopefully, FLEX those wires, to be sure they don’t have a break inside that is intermittent (comes and goes)!

On my model 770 in 300 mag. new right out of the box, cleaned in and oiled it but the bolt action was still sticky and after firing a box and a half though it it still will not eject the spent casing and I have to turn the gun on it’s side and let it drop out on it’s own. I have even called Remington’s repair shop in Or. and they can’t guarantee it will work as he said it was nothing but a cheap rifle from Remington. I will be sending to Remington’s repair shop and if they can not repair it what rights do I have to get my money back? As I don’t feel that I should keep on having to pay for shipping all the time for there poorly made rifle.
ANSWER : I am not sure what u are asking here if anything??
