Remington 1100 Question

I have a Remington 1100 that I recently inherited from a passed-away great-uncle. It's a 20-gauge autoloader, and I finally took it out yesterday to shoot some skeet with it. It was a lot of fun, and it shoots great. However, I want to take the bird plug out of it just so I don't have to reload so often. My buddy who was there with me is good with shotguns, but he's never messed with an 1100 before, so he didn't know how to do it. I'm a shotgun newb, as I've always preferred rifles.
If anyone could tell me how (or provide me with a link to directions) to remove the bird plug, I'd appreciate it.

[I already tried Googling it, but I didn't have any luck.]

It has been a while since I peered into the internals of a 1100 but I THINK that after removing the cap on the shell tube, there is a piece that you gently pry out of the top of the tube. The recoil spring will then pop out and the plug is inside the spring. I have an old 16g 1100 at home and if I think of it, I'll look at it tonight to make sure I'm right.

that's right- it's just a wooden plug in mine and pops out of the tube when you take the barrel off, you can see it- all the cycling is done on the OUTSIDE of the tube- just be sure to put the cap the RIGHT WAY ROUND so you get the full 5 shots when you replace it

- go to numrich arms( e-parts) type in remington 1100 , and you'll see an exploded diagram of the whole thing- there may also be the same thing on the remington site itself

If you are shooting on a skeet range you will not be allowed to have more than two rounds in your gun at anytime.

Thats' right. And if you keep the plug in, it's legal in the field.
