How hard is it to remove and clean or replace the action spring in the stock.
Any help is appreciated.

I've never removed one from a Remington.
But, you can bet it will be under LOTs of pressure.
Do a search on Google or another search engine for instructions on how to disassemble that shotgun. They've been around a long time now. There must be some free online parts diagrams and manuals available.
Hopefully, you won't need much for special tools.:wink:

I've had an 1100 since the 60's but never had the buttstock off. It is set up much like the Fal recoil tube. After removing the stock, you drive out the "Action Spring Tube Pin" At this point, I'm sure everything else will disassemble itsself.
Actually, the pin punch should hold the plug and springs in until you remove it. Don't know how much force the springs have, but the Fal recoil spring is not all that hard to compress.
I have an exploded parts diagram, but no scanner to send you a pic, sorry.

Remove the buttplate, and use a Model 1100 stock wrench, (B-Square use to make them) or in a pinch a large, wide screwdriver to remove the stock retaining nut, washer, and lock washer. Take off the stock and stock bearing plate toward the rear. Insert a tool such as a drift punch at the rear of the spring tube to retain the bolt spring plug.
CAUTION: THIS SPRING IS UNDER TENSION! http://www.falfiles.com/forums/attachment.php?s=&postid=1787627 So keeping your face and any other body parts you’re fond of out of the way as you carefully push out the retaining cross pin; keeping it all under control, ease out the plug, spring, and follower toward the rear. I Hope this helps.
