    Clean the gas port and you may need new 'o' rings. Get Viton rings, they last longer.
    Here is a link where you can get them.

        calebcobb50- I posted this a while back to someone who had a similar problem with an 1100. They had taken the weapon to a gunsmith with deplorable results.
        Several things could be causing your problem, and with an 1100, they are usually simple fixes. I would recommend, if your gunsmith cannot fix an 1100, try a different smith.
        1. Field strip the weapon by removing the magazine tube nut under the barrel, and remove the fore end and barrel. There are two holes inside the round lug that goes around the magazine tube. Make sure these are not obstructed. Clean with a paper clip, or pipe cleaner. If there is only one hole, your barrel is a magnum model, and may not shoot lighter loads well.
        2. After cleaning the gas port holes, look at the chamber end of the barrel. About 3/8" from the end, there should be a small stub protruding about 3/16" or 1/4". This is the ejector, and if damaged, or missing, your gun will not kick out the shell. Any competent gunsmith can replace this.
        3. Next, look on the magazine tube, and find the rubber O-ring and the metal gas checks. On older models, there will be a two piece gas check. On newer models, the gas check is one piece. Make sure your O-ring is not damaged, and the gas checks are installed correctly. There should be a small diagram depicting correct installation on the underside of the sliding part that is around the magazine tube.
        4. With the gun disassembled, check the extractor. This is the small part you can see on the bolt, through the ejection port. The extractor should be spring loaded into the bolt,(just a little wiggle) and have a good, defined edge to fit over the rim of the shotgun shell. If it is broken or rough, the extractor cannot pull the shell from the chamber. Have it replaced.
        5. Thoroughly clean the chamber. This is the first 2 3/4" or 3" of the barrel. Sometimes powder residue, crud and even rust can hold back a hull enough to inhibit good extraction.
        If none of these basic fixes will work, I would recommend finding a different gunsmith, and request that he fire the weapon to determine the cause of the malfunction.
        Hope some of this will help, and good luck!

          Remington! Once again! Remington use to make good guns in the past but have left quality control to mass production of disposable beginner guns. Just research all the complaints with Remington model guns. A good rule of thumb is to not buy something with a 20% or greater complaint rate, because you'll always fall into that 20%. Just saying do the research before buying.

            It's been a while since I shot an 1100 but mine had a metal recoil ring that fit over the magazine tube just inside the forward barrel ring. One position was for normal loads. If you flipped the ring, it supported low brass loads. Does yours have one of these? If not, it might be missing. Not sure if new 1100's have this.

              Dakota,
              I had the Remington 11-48, the predecessor of the 1100 and it had the ring that you turned over for light loads.
              Dcast,
              Remington won all kinds of manufacturing awards for the design and manufacturer of the 11-87. At the time, more awards than any other firearm manufacturer.

                Could be something as simple buildup at the end of your barrel where the shell sits. Give a good cleaning using Breakfree. Also, take a look at your extractor, may be chipped or worm.
