I am looking at purchasing a 12ga semi-auto tactical shotgun. Have been doing some research and am being told that semi-auto shotguns need to have the gas rings replaced every 200 rounds or they become unreliable. Anyone have any first hand knowledge about this as this could be a deal breaker.

Buy an inertia gun like a Benelli M2 tactical or a Vinci tactical. Problem solved.

You just need to make sure it has tactical rings or it won't really be a tactical shotgun.

I have a Remington 1100 20ga (not LT) made in the 60s or 70s, it's never had the rings replaced.

You need to find more reliable sources. My Mossberg has over 2000 rounds with minimal cleaning and no parts replacement.

1100's have O rings but run much much longer than 200 rounds and are also simple to replace. What do you mean by gas rings? I have Winchester, Browning, Weatherby, and FABARM gas semi's and they don't have gas rings that I've ever seen.

Don't buy a Remington and you are fine.
