I can't believe nobody has mentioned WD40 Dry Lube: https://www.wd40.com/products/dry-lube/

I swear by it...not at it.

I'd call the claim dubious, at best. Even today, 1500 rounds without cleaning is 'bragging rights' of sorts for the Remington V3, Mossberg 940, and so on. When I went through Remington's private gun library as well as the museum, I did ask where the world-record-breaking 1100 LT-20 was. No one at Remington had any idea what I was referring to.

All gas-operated shotguns get pretty scummy past 1000 rounds: B-80, Fabarm L4S, V3, Mossberg 940, Beretta 390. There is an old saying, “he who asserts must prove.” We all know who makes the fastest-cycling, softest-shooting, most reliable shotgun in the world. According to current catalogues, everyone makes that model.


This is outdated?

There are two schools of thought regarding maintaining a REM 1100. Some shooters have had good luck by using lubricant in and around the gas pistons and magazine tube. Other shooters prefer everything to be dry and clean, with just a drop or two of oil on the action bars.

To some extent, both methods seem to work, pick your poison.

I have used this before in sandy environments and it worked well.

Liquid Wrench has a dry lube aerosol that works pretty well on such things as trigger assemblies. I have not used it on the external surface of 1100 magazine tubes, preferring to run them wet with Breakfree CLP.
