Ordered a set of new style, click together, rings from Ahlmans in MN. They sent me what appear to be Aluminum rings. Anyone ever seen or heard these? I though buying from theses guys would be safe.....

I'm pretty sure Remington never made rings out of anything but Steele.

Put a magnet to them. They should be steel.

Why would you WANT the new style rings? They offer ZERO advantages to the two piece design. That being said, it's probably take what you can get given current Rem parts availability, and if they work they work.

If you can find a set, the newer Nu-Line piston and piston seal are stainless. The early ones had an iffy fit issue.

In 50 years of shooting 1100s, I have NEVER had the piston seal rings fail, never! Having said that, I have sold an awful lot of replacements

The Ahlmans rings are steel.

I was a little skeptical of the newer snap-together design, but as noted selection and availability aren't what they used to be.

A recently acquired but well-used older 1100 wasn't ejecting 1oz 1200 factory loads, and i'd done everything else I could think of - everything was spotless from the wooden plug in the recoil spring to the retainer on the magazine, and everything in between. with a nice light wipe of CLP.

So I got a ringset from Ahlmans and that to have cleaned it up.

Ain't that the truth?
I could say the same thing about every other part in them as well, save one (1) extractor.

In the past 3 years I have had two broken ones. One in a 20 ga. Skeet gun and one in my son's 12 gauge 1187. Big chunks came right out of them. The 20 gauge still works with the broken rings. The 12 didn't.

I chipped one in an 11-87 a number of years ago after many K rounds. The replacement snapped together. No problems since.
