    Remington 1100 trigger assembly.

    Well here it is and this may be the problem, shot gun gurus help me out. I believe the part in question is the carrier latch

    Looks pretty dirty to me. I'd spray the thing clean with some WD40 and try it again.

    yeah that is first on my agenda. I believe the Carrier latch might have sheered a piece off given what I can find online. Then again this was my first gun, and Ive had it since I was at least twelve, so it could just be an early design.

    I guess to add some background of the problem. When the bolt locks back, I cant release it using the carrier release on the underside. I have to put a stick inside to manually disengage the carrier latch. The obviously makes this gun an expensive paper weight.

    Coated it with CLP and cleaned it up. That didn't help but I'm not surprised.

    The carrier release isn't fully engaging or disengaging (depending on how you look at it) the carrier latch. May just order a new carrier assembly if I don't figure it our.

    When you say you can't release it using the carrier release...does the "button" stick...as in, it's impossible to push it in..or you can push it in normally but nothing happens? If it's the latter then it sounds like it may just be worn out and it not actually pushing the release. In which case you'll need a new one or you can use some JB weld to add back the worn out material on the actual release......but that's not a perma fix. you'll be better off just buying a new release assembly.

    I can push it and it moves. It doesn't move enough to push the carrier latch off of the little nub (pardon my terminology), it can still be manually released. So its not worn down as opposed to eight now could use to be worn down more

    Well on the.plus side, the bolt moves freely now. Downside, the bolt moves freely now. It won't lock back

    Last time I took a 1100 apart it had to go to a smith to be put back together.
    Shit happens. The ripples just stop and then it's over like nothing was ever there.

    Wow That shotgun is dirty! If the trigger assembly looks like that then im betting the bolt and carrier has never been removed and the inside of the receiver cleaned out. That shotgun needs a complete field strip and clean. Use break parts cleaner or barrel solvent (aerosol in a can). Check link (looks like a tuning fork behind the bolt) for debris inside it and the action spring (goes in tube in stock and link goes between the spring and your bolt) check it for rusting, kinks and debris in the spring. Its not uncommon to find weeds and what not stuffed in there. Can you make a youtube vid of you pushing the release (button) while the trigger assembly is removed from the shotgun? I suspect your bolt doesnt want to come all the way back and lock because there is too much $#@! and crud jammed behind it! There are youtube vids on how to remove the bolt and link and reinstall.
    Where are you located?

    This shotgun failed because it did not have proper yearly maintenance (cleaning) performed. It can be brought back to life very easily. As much powder residue that is in the trigger assembly I suspect the shotgun has been run often without the oring gas seal installed. Is it there now?

    The carrier latch can get bent/broken and not allow the bolt to drop when pushed.

    Fix for a bent one is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yclkl4L0qa0

    If the trigger group is removed and the hammer let fly fwd, it can tweak the carrier latch so that the bolt won't lock back. That is rather common and it appears that nobody knows how to get it back just right......................they either leave it (no bolt lockback) or get a new trigger group.

    Life and other projects got in the way. Its a good gun, but its a .410. I just dont have a lot of use for it other than it was my first gun my dad bought me.

    If you like a gun a lot, you'll shoot it a lot.
    That means more wear and tear.

    Remington, like anybody else, is not immune to that.

    Robust designs may have lesser issues down the road.

    Most folks don't really shoot enough. Majority of issues come from re-assembly errors, poor maintenance, or improper application/ammo.

    The average guy and a screwdriver...................generates proly 50+% of a gunsmith's business.

    Parts do wear and break though, seen hundreds (good design just means it won't wear fast, and when it needs replaced it's easy).

    It was cleaned and never disassembled past the two pins holding in the trigger assembly. Pretty hard to $#@! that up, but im sure someone has.
