    My brother has bought a used remington 1100 shotgun, and when he tried to load the magazinbe with a shell, it will not load. However, if he opens the breach and places a shell in the breach, with the breach closed, he can then place shells in the magazine tube. Is this normal for a remington? Wanting to know.

    Thanks

    make surre hes pushing the bolt release in all the way with the base of the shell when he loads it. Thats the only design flaw to the 1100 and 11/87 remingtons IMO. that dang button in the middle of the elevator can really inhibit quick easy loading...
