Shot a Rem 1100 for 10 years, then got an 11-87 SPS in 1991 and am still shooting it today. Both were flawless, never once jammed. Duck and goose hunting everywhere from Louisiana to Iowa. Thousands of rounds through them (trapshooting included). The key to a Rem is to keep them CLEAN and DRY. Keep the stainless tube clean with fine steel wool and I soak the trigger assembly in a gallon jar of WD-40 once per year. Just my experience thumbup

What does the WD-40 do for the trigger group?

WD-40 eventually dries to a gummy too, at least it did when it came out. I made a fair amount of money cleaning triggers on waterfowl shotguns from guys just hosing down the insides of their shotguns with the stuff in the late 70s early 80s.

I read about a test that was done about 20 years or so ago on gun cleaners. It found that WD-40 ranked at the bottom of the list because it actually attracts rust.

I'd be curious to know if there is any validity to that. As far as I know, WD-40 was created for the Navy and stands for water displacement 40th recipe/formula.

I think we have gotten way off topic here.

As far as shotguns, I've heard locally that some cheap Walmart semi works very well, but the guy who said that always brags up whatever junk he buys and then you see it for sale a year later sooo...

When I was researching going on an Argentina dove hunt 15 years ago or so (didn't go) the common theme was if you're bringing a semi, only berretta's and benelli's need apply. Nothing else would hold up to that kind of volume without problems. I've had a 12 and 20 Montefeltro for about 20 years and haven't ever wanted anything else. I know there have been advancements since but what I have is reliable and look good.

If I wanted a gas gun it would be a Berretta. Buy once/cry once.

I've seen some of the cheap shotguns at WM. Hatfields maybe?? Hard to put a lot of faith in a $200 shotty.

Evidently, according to the group here, it ruins a perfectly good gun. My grandpa did it, so it's what I did. Stupid I guess.

Well... don't be mad but there are now much better cleaning solvents and oils than what grandpap had back in the day.

IIRC, in the movie Lost Boy's, Grandpa used WD-40 for cologne.
