    Trigger on Rem 1100 is dead!

    What did I do wrong? I took my 1100 down to clean it, and apparently the trigger never reset or something like that. It seems that the trigger is in the uncocked position, and pulling the bolt back, does not cock the gun.
    Can any one tell me what I did wrong, how I can reset the trigger?
    Thanks

    Did you actually remove the trigger from the gun?

    I have an 1100, and once had a similar problem with the trigger that turned out to be a bushing and a spring that popped out and disappeared. If you check your owners manual diagram, it was #85 & #87 in my case:

    85 - Trigger Plate Pin Bushing, Rear
    87 - Trigger Plate Detent Spring, Rear

    It may be something similar in your case, although it could be the front bushing missing.

    If you need a copy of the owner's manual, it's here:

    Also, you might wish to compare the trigger assembly with the breakaway image and double-check to see if all parts are intact. If that doesn't work, I guess you'll need to send the assembly back to Remington, or see a gunsmith.

    Hope this helps!

    Just thought of something else...

    If you removed the trigger group, did the main spring pop out of the receiver? If so, was it put back in the right way, with the grooves towards the bottom?

    Also, I do like Dukalmighty's answer too. Try that as well!

    Thanks for the replies. I removed the trigger group again, squeezed the trigger, and it fired with the trigger group out of the gun. So, I put the trigger assembly back into the receiver uncocked, pulled back the bolt and eased it forward, and nothing happened. Then, I pressed the slide release button, even though the bolt was already closed, and the trigger operated normally and released the fireing pin. I worked the action several times after that, using a dummy shell, and it worked fine cocking and fireing each time. So, it seems to be ok.
