Ports in the remington 1100 barrel towards the front allow gases to be released and power the action. Next, the gases propel a steel action sleeve around the magazine tube and into the bolt carrier at the gun’s rear, where the expended round is ejected.

The Remington 1100 replaced the Model 58 and Model 878 gas-operated shotguns in 1963, and it was designed by Wayne Leek and Robert Kelley. The recoil operated Model 11-48 had been replaced by the Model 58, but the lengthy recoil action of John Browning’s original design remained in the Model 11 and the Browning Auto-5. The Model 58 and Model 878 were replaced by the Model 1100 upon its release in 1963, and the Model 11-48 was replaced by the Model 1100 a few years later.
