Important Parts of the Firearm

The Safety Mechanism

The safety mechanism on the Model 1100/11-87 Shotguns is a button located behind the trigger. See Pictures 3 and 4.

031100parts.png041100parts.png

The safety mechanism provides protection against accidental or unintentional discharge under normal usage when properly engaged and in good working order.

To engage the safety mechanism, push the button so that the RED BAND MARKING CANNOT BE SEEN.

Always engage the safety mechanism when the firearm is loaded and you do not intend to shoot.

Never pull the trigger when the safety mechanism is engaged.

When you are ready to fire the firearm, press the safety mechanism so that the RED BAND MARKING IS SHOWING.

Do not touch the trigger while moving the safety mechanism. Your fingers and all other objects should be kept outside the trigger guard and away from the trigger until you are actually ready to fire by pulling the trigger.

WARNING: The firearm will fire when the trigger is pulled and the RED BAND IS SHOWING.

Even when the safety mechanism is engaged, careless handling can cause the firearm to fire. See the Ten Commandments of Firearm Safety.

The Security System

The firearm you have purchased is equipped with an integrated security system. The security system enables the owner to lock the safety mechanism on the firearm in the “SAFE” position with the use of a special key.

THIS SECURITY SYSTEM DOES NOT ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR SAFE GUN HANDLING AND STORAGE, INCLUDING KEEPING THIS AND EVERY GUN UNLOADED AND LOCKED IN A SECURE PLACE WHEN NOT IN USE. READ AND FOLLOW THESE AND OTHER SAFETY RULES IN THIS INSTRUCTION BOOK. FAILURE TO READ, UNDERSTAND AND OBEY THESE RULES CAN RESULT IN SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH TO YOU OR OTHERS. SEE THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF FIREARM SAFETY.

The safety mechanism on the firearm you have purchased is a button located behind the trigger, commonly known as the cross-bolt safety. See Pictures 3 and 4.

The safety mechanism provides additional protection against accidental or unintentional discharge under normal usage when properly engaged and in good working order.

On the safety mechanism there is a “J” shaped slot. See Picture 5. This “J” slot is the key hole for securing your safety mechanism. Also on the safety mechanism is a pointer which will point and line up with either the RED or WHITE DOT on the trigger plate when the safety mechanism is turned. See Picture 5. The position of the pointer indicates whether or not the security system is engaged. The existence of the security system does not change the basic operation of the safety mechanism, nor does it change the manner in which the safety mechanism should be used.

051100parts.png

With your new firearm you will receive a capped key. To use the key remove the cap. On the key is an indicator line which will line up with the pointer on the safety mechanism. See Picture 6.

061100parts.png

To engage the security system, press the safety mechanism to the “SAFE” position so the RED BAND DOES NOT SHOW. Insert the key into the “J” slot as far as it can go. Next, turn the key counter-clockwise so that the indicator line on the key and the pointer on the safety mechanism line up with the WHITE DOT on the trigger plate.

THE SECURITY SYSTEM IS NOW ENGAGED.

In operating the security system, NEVER use excessive force to turn the key. If the key will not turn freely, contact a Remington® Authorized Service Center.

Keep your security system engaged and your safety mechanism in the “SAFE” position when your firearm is not in use. Keep your key in a secure place, inaccessible to others. DO NOT leave your key or any ammunition with your firearm, which should be kept unloaded and locked in a safe place.

If you lose the key, DO NOT attempt to disengage the security system using a foreign object. This will damage your firearm. Contact your Remington Authorized Service Center for a replacement key.

Even if you think the security system and safety mechanism are engaged, careless handling can cause the firearm to fire. See The Ten Commandments of Firearm Safety.

The Operating Handle

The operating handle is used to pull the bolt rearward to open the action. See Picture 7.

071100parts.png

WARNING: When the operating handle is forward as shown in Picture 7, the bolt is closed and the firearm can be fired.

The Carrier Release

  2. Engage the safety mechanism. RED BAND WILL NOT SHOW.
  3. CAUTION: Keep your fingers away from the ejection port and operating handle.

The Trigger

091100parts.png

Pulling the trigger fires the firearm.

The weight of the trigger pull is preset at the factory.

All adjustments to the trigger and trigger plate assembly must be made by the factory or a REMINGTON® AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER.

WARNING: NEVER put your finger on the trigger unless you are going to fire the firearm.
