Hi all, I have a question that I'm sure this group can answer. My Dad has a 20 gauge Model 1187. I told him I would give it a good cleaning. When I disassembled it the magazine spring retainer was missing (he bought it used). I'm looking for one but they appear to be "out of stock" in the places I have looked or the ones I have found (like on Ebay) must be gold plated!

Will a retainer from a Model 870 work or another model? They appear to be very similar in the pictures.

Thx
Andy

It’s just a tube, so yes, one from an 870 should work just fine

When Midway USA had them for 12 gauge they were sold as being for 870, 11-87, 1100.
