My older Model 1100 magnum will not cycle 3-inch steel shot. Why?

Table of contents


An older Model 1100 magnum shotgun may not cycle steel shot because steel shot does not produce the same muzzle velocity as lead shot. We do offer a replacement Model 1100 12 gauge steel shot barrel which has a larger gas orifice hole and is designed to cycle these loads. You can order a steel shot barrel for your Model 1100 shotgun by calling our parts department at 1-800-243-9700 M-F 9am-5pm EST.
