Hi there Remington experts :)
After some advice before I place an order for piston and seal for 12g 1100/1187. Is there one type out there better than another ? 2 piece vs 1 piece ?
Can somebody give me an education on what is best to get and available , along with a part number to quote.

The two piece that fits together on the bevel is best in my opinion. Below should be the right parts from Remington, but I would call them to be sure.

F15384 V-73 1100 PISTON (PART #200295 IS NEW STYLE PISTON AND SEAL) $8.24
F15385 V-74 1100 PISTON SEAL (PART #200295 IS NEW STYLE PISTON AND SEAL) $9.27

This is the Nu-Line kit from Brownell's (They are out of the Remington piston)
655-110-000WB 12 Ga. Gas System Kit Mfr Part: NLG15386SS

Midway shows both Remington parts in stock.

Some of the early Nu-Line kits had issues, but the newer ones I have used have been okay. Make sure you have the gaps 180 degrees apart.

They were hard to find a few months ago so I spent a lot of time searching on the internet. (I avoided the Nu-Lines based on input from Virginian - I wanted something better than 'okay.')

After I purchased pistons and piston seals, Virginian posted that Remington had added them to their website. That might be the first place to check.

To save you some time, here are places that have new old stock Remington pistons and piston seals in stock. I've purchased parts from the first two places and everything has been as described (or better than described):

Classic Firearms & Parts http://cfnparts.com/index.php?route=inf ... tion_id=11 (They are currently showing on as in stock in the 1100 section. For anyone looking in the future, call if you don't see them. This is a one may outfit and sometimes he has not had time to update the webpage.)

"Flyingwoof" who sells via gunbroker. Here's his listing for the 12g piston. http://www.gunbroker.com/item/592869732 I've purchase one via auction and then he's let me purchase an additional piston (or piston seal) at the same price. That saved me some shipping.

This link shows you all the parts he has. Remington 1100 items start about page 39 (page will vary as auctions close and new items are added). This link should take you to page 39. http://www.gunbroker.com/All/BI.aspx?In ... geIndex=39

Bob's guns shop http://www.gun-parts.com/index.html/ I think this person works part time as it can take a while to get a response to an email. Seems like a good guy but found him after I'd purchased the pistons and he didn't have other items that I was looking for.

Thanks for Info, :D
Virginian has given me good info and leads before. I am putting together a small wish list for a broker to bundle up bits to get exported out to me to keep me going next 20 years or so till I end up in boot hill. 1100 and 1187's are excellent reliable gear if looked after so I am sure I will be trouble free forever.
No bits or few gunsmiths here in Auzz so your very much on your own. Break it and you make it.

Much appreciated

Also info back for Virginian. We experimented with the mobile one synthetic motor oil as discussed few months back did Light wipe over with rag on mag tube and the odd dot. Put it through the paces with heaps of shots. Worked a treat and definitely goes the distance better here with the heat compared to the remoil and WD's.
Very happy with result will use from now on.

Not surprised about the Mobil 1 - that's probably the easiest assignment it is ever likely to get. If I ever need to venture down that path I'll like go with Castrol Edge synthetic, being partial to BP.
