Looking for some guidance on repair work for one of my Remington 1100 Barrels. I bought a used 21" Rifle Sight Smoothbore 2 3/4" Barrel used because that configuration isn't available from Remington anymore, and after 25 slugs down the barrel, the gas collar separated from the rest of the barrel.
Can this be safely rewelded back onto the barrel as long as the gas ports are properly lined up or will it warp the barrel and make it unusable just trying?
(P.S. Don't crap on me for how my 1100 Magnum is configured, I bought it configured this way, which is why I want to have an alternative barrel with a practical length.)
