I recently bought a Remington model 11-48 in 410 and am having trouble getting it to consistently cycle 2 1/2" 1/2 oz. loads. I have thoroughly cleaned, polished and lubed everything including the magazine tube. It tends to eject the fired hull but does not always completely chamber the next round. I have noticed that when I push a shell into the magazine tube it hangs up and I have to give it an extra push to get it past the hang up and into the magazine. I love this little gun but need to get this problem resolved. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Papa, are those new shells, or reloads?

Both but mostly reloads. I have pumped my reloads up as hot as I dare with a full 1/2 oz. at 1300 fps. I did run 1 box of new 3" shells thru it & didn't have the problem.

look on page 4 at the diagram and make sure the recoil reducing compensation pieces are assembled correctly.

Also, I would remove the magazine spring, clean the inside of the tube, and look for a dent, ding, or out of round place near the receiver on the mag tube.

Please note that the .410 11-48 does NOT have friction rings.

If you think that it is sticky loading the magazine, it's probably
sticking on the way back out too. Clean the
inside of the tube.

Thanks for the correction Bob, I have only seen 20's and 12 gauges and was going by the manual.
Does the 28 not have it either?

28 has friction ring, at least mine does.

Thanks guys. I have thoroughly cleaned and lightly lubed the mag tube both inside and out as well as the magazine spring and follower. I am just wondering if the shell latch is not functioning properly. I'm thinking this may be causing the hang up when inserting a shell in the mag and thus interfering with chambering a shell from the mag. Does this sound reasonable?

Possibly, check and make sure something like a weed/grass seed or other foreign object has not gotten lodged between the shell latch and the inside wall of the receiver. This is a spot on many Remington guns that only gets cleaned or see's the light of day if it comes unstaked.

Papa,

I'm sorta liking the shell latch possibility.

If after a close examination of the latch turns up nothing, try this.
Since 3" shells cause no problems and 2-1/2" are problematic, your 2-1/2"
shells may not be sending the bolt back with enough authority to function
reliably.

Unless you've chronographed your reloads, I would put them aside for a while.
Shoot factory shells exclusively. Try Rem. STS Nitro or similar 1300 fps cartridges
or AA Sporting Clays. These cartridges have plenty of oomph. If they don't
get the gun to function to your liking, I don't know what to say.

I think I've made some such suggestions before. I'm still at a loss.
I hope you straighten this out, they are fun little guns.

Anyone have a clue how to reinstall the shell latch on a 410 bore 11-48? It is totally different from the other gauges. I have disassembled and reassembled many shotguns in my life but have never run into a problem like this one. I have spent hours upon hours trying to get this back together. Every book I've read and every video I've watched demonstrated a 12 gauge. Believe me, it is not like the 410 at all. The latch itself doesn't even look the same. I probably should just take it to a gunsmith but I'm having problems giving up on it. If anyone has been through this before please let me know how you solved this problem. I'm sure you would remember it.

Taken from another website:

"There is a special tool to aid in assembling the 11-48, it is a "Z" shaped piece of wire. I never had much luck with it though.

Try this-
- install bolt assembly
- install barrel assembly
- install shell latch -- insert the pin part way to hold it in place
- install the trigger guard -- back end first --- and too far forward
- slide the trigger guard rearward and rotate into place"

I had a shell latch let go of the receiver on an 1100 20ga.
Getting the trigger group back in was a bother. A job well suited
for a three handed monkey. I got it back together and eventually took
it to a gunsmith to have it re-staked.

Here is the easy way to install that 410 shell latch.

Fit the shell latch into place - don't worry about exact fit for trigger housing retaining pin at this point.

With the hammer DOWN, guide the hammer inbetween the two recoil springs at the rear of the bolt.

Using a small brass punch, go though the forward trigger housing retaining pin hole in the right side of the receiver and press the shell latch into the receiver.

While holding the shell latch into the reveal, fit the front of the trigger housing over the shell latch and then the rear.

Install the rear pin. Use a brass punch and press the shell latch rearward into place (from the front of the receiver) and install the front pin.

Voila!

I also have the 1148 in .410 that was hard to load shells past the stop into the magazine. I have to use my little finger to push them all the way in sometimes. My 1148 cycles either 2.5 or 3" without problems. I do grease the grooves in the barrel that slide back into the receiver after cleaning and before reassembly.

Here is a link to the thread where I refurbished the old 1148 with pictures beginning to end.
