GUN shotguns don't have o-rings, do they?

    :ugh:

    I was cleaning my shotgun, and after putting it together, I found an O-ring.

    my gun's not waterproof anymore =0\

    seriously though, am I going to die?

    also- I'd never shot a shotgun before, and am now the owner of a very nice bruise on my right shoulder...

    what kind?

    11-87 and 1100 does for sure.

    afaik, it should still function but not with light loads. you can get the orings cheap, i just ordered a 6 pack on ebay for $4 shipped.

    do not recall any o-rings in the 870. There is definately o-rings in the 1100, and 11-87. If/when those o-rings break the shotgun stops functioning. Get the o-rings from eric wesselman. You get like 50 of them for $5. Change the o-rings every 1000 shells.

    ok, well it sounds like i won't be able to load/fire any rounds if the o ring isn't in place.
    so, really i don't need to worry about damaging the gun. i just need to figure out whether or not the o-ring goes to the gun (and if so, where the o-ring goes)!

    don't think there is a oring anywhere in the 870.

    kk, thanks.
    this of course brings up the next issue- where did this mysterious o-ring come from?!

    i doubt a cleaning kit would have them. i'm going to guess that it's from these plastic boxes that look like ammo cans. i got 2 for $15, and they're really rugged. One I'm going to take to the range, and the other, I'm going to keep for... long term comic book storage?

    thanks for your help everyone, the o-ring does NOT belong to my shotgun
    now the matter of figuring out where in my apartment it came from!
