    My Remington 11-87 auto loader is not ejecting . I am using 3" Remington copper solid slugs. The gun is well taken care of, about 10 years old. Lightly used. Ideas as to cause and fix. ?

    Are you shooting High Brass? My 11-87 started failing to eject because I was shooting cheap federal low brass shells. I switched back to high brass and it fixed the problem. You may want to tear it down and give it a real good cleaning and scrub your action very well. See what that does and then look for another cause if it doesn't fix it.

      I would try these things:

      1. Disassemble, and completely clean the operating system.

      2. Clean the gas posts on the barrel, making sure there isn't any carbon build-up. Google is your friend, friend.

      3. Replace the gas seal o-ring. You can get a remington-specific part, or there are those that use generic rings. I little googlebird told me that the correct size is #21 for 12 gauge, and make sure it is something called Vitron rubber.

        Seems quite a few Rem models have this problem.
        Sounds like a "short-cycle".
        Problem: over lubrication
        Solution: remove barrel, clean mag tube assembly "very" well, clean barrel ring very well.
        Lubricate lightly. With a soft, dry rag, (such as an old tee-shirt), remove the applied lube until the mag tube assembly feels only slightly lubed.
        Re-assemble and test fire.
        As much as the mag tube assembly needs lube, too much lube doesn't allow the friction ring to hold well enough to fully cycle the action, thus causing a "short-cycle".
