I just ordered synthetic stock and forend for my new to me 1100, I can not budge the stock bolt at all, does anyone have the tool needed to remove the bolt, I just listed my wood set for sale and I dont want to tear it up getting it off.

Would anyone loan me the tool? I would be happy to pay shipping both ways.

A screw driver with a big bit is all that is needed. Wrap a wad of masking tape around the shank of the screw driver to help keep it centered in the hole in the stock. If you can find a screwdriver with a square shank you can use a wrench of the proper size to add leverage.

First off I'm no 1100 expert or gunsmith!!!
You are talking about the bolt in the stock? What O ring?
Just had mine apart. BFScrew driver.
Do not think I had to use vic-grip on the BFSD. Maybe!
I do know when I put it back togather,I put a little Elmer's Glue on the threads.
I never use luck tight This keeps the stock from loosening up!
But you can all ways get it apart, farely easily.
Sorry I'm not more helpful. Let us know how this goes for you!
Good luck!!!!

The o ring is on the magazine tube, its part of the gas system, I tore it in 2 when I pulled the barrel off, bought a new one from the hardware store, I cant budge the stock bolt, my handa are bruised and sore, im just going to take it by my gunsmith once the new stock shows up.

Really bygs me that a guy cant get a simple bolt off just to remove a stock.

You will. Get the correct ones from Brownells. I also suggest a stainless steel ring too.

I got my O RING set from brownells too. They were cheap. I also got their extended/larger bolt handle. Made huge difference in operating of the shotgun.

The stock is just removed with a big long screwdriver. But make sure its BIG and fits the screw slot so you dont strip it off.

If its never been off it might be tight.

I doubt the stock has ever been off, will check brownells for the.viton rings, the ones I got from the hardware store were only $.40 each so I aint ouy much if they dont work. My new stock set is supposed to be here tomorrow, my gunsmith is an hour away, I may go to the hardware stor and look for a BF screwdriver.

I just had the same issue. I tried a large screwdriver, a lug wrench, and it never budged. I never could get a good angle on the bolt. I bought the special tool from Brownell's and it came off with ease. I was amazed. I'll let you borrow the tool. Send me your address via im.

A wood spade bit can work if you grind it down a little so it is square and flat.

I just grabbed it with some Vice Grips and turned them with a large cresent wrench.

I got my new stock from ups today, when I got the wood stock off I see a metal plate at the back of the reciever, my synthetic stock wont fit flush with this plate on, can I remove the plate or is it a part that MUST be on the gun, I was about to dremel the stock down to fit.

Put away the Dremel. The metal plate is only used with a wood stock, take it off when installing a synthetic stock.

PS Don't foreget....If the stock loosens up, you can put a little Elmer's Glue on the threads.

I hacksawed my barrel down to just over 21", not a perfect cut but I left enough on the end to have it properly crowned later on, I sanded the end of the barrel smooth and cleaned up the ruff edges and cold blued it with birchwood casey. Im going to shoot it tomorrow and see how it patterns in self defense ranges, eventually I will buy a deer barrel for it.

Just got back from the range, ran 50 rounds of birdshot , 5 slugs and 5 buckshot rounds, no jams and it pattern fine with the buck and the slugs went where I pointed them.

My hardware store o ring held up so far.

That cap doesn't cover the screw, you need to take the recoil pad or butt plate off.

Oh. Oops. Just brought this home, we got this as an inherited piece from my wife's grandfather –– never owned a shotgun before (and only shot one for the first time –– a Benelli, not sure which model –– last week).

Thanks for the info!
