Sometime back there was a thread on 11-87 reliability with reduced power buckshot. Someone mentioned the use of the barrel seal activator from the Super Mag remedied any issues. Got one, can't recall where it goes and the available skematics give no clue.

Can anyone please advise? Thanks.

In order:

Piston
Seal activator
Seal (o ring)

Don't chew up the o ring, and I like light coat of lube, but that's just me.

The activator was a fix Remington used on the 14" guns.

Let us know if you think it helped

Thanks, wanted to get everything written down before/if I tear it down and try it out. I haven't had any issues with the 21 inch barrel and "tactical" buck, but I noticed that ejection of more recent production of Federal Tactical Buck ejects with much less enthusiasm than the older stuff. Wanted to have this on hand in case of future need. Wrote your info into my owners manual and will keep the part there too. I expect a little dab of silicone grease wouldn't hurt.

Might give it a try with some el cheapo shotshell loads that won't otherwise function the gun. My handloads with same weight of shot function fine. I suspect the bargain basement loads use a pinch of really fast burning powder and I'm using WSF and Unique.
