Forearm comes loose on the 1100

Last time out I noticed I was constantly tightening the forearm nut. Right after I shoot I notice the forearm getting loose. Now... the gun is 1978 vintage and God only know how many rounds have been through it, so maybe something is wearing out. I hate to put it out to pasture. I really like it for SC.

Try some white plumber's teflon tape on the threads. I had to do that with my 1100 28 gauge's choke tubes; only thing that kept them snug.

The spring loaded stop that holds the magazine cap in the forearm may be lost or stuck in the down position. If working properly it should sound like a "ratchet" when you tighten the magazine cap.
