My friend told me to buy the cheapest 11-speed chain I could buy for him, will a SRAM PC 1130 work with Shimano SLX mtb? some people are saying that SRAM chains are not compatible with Shimano drivetrains, while others are saying that do in fact work with no issues, so I'm quite confused as to what is compatible with what. If you have tried it yourself even better. I just need it to work.

Yes, sram 11sp and Shimano 11sp chains are interchangeable.

SRAM 12sp chains are not compatible with Shimano 12sp.

I have a 1x11 speed drivetrain. Shimano SLX derailleur and shifter, Raceface cranks and direct mount chainring. Shimano chain and Sunrace cassette. All came together as factory fitted spec on a new hardtail and all work very well together.

If I need a new chain I will buy a cheap 11 speed KMC chain to go on them and I'm
sure that will work too.

I’ve ridden a whole sram drivetrain on a slx cassette. Go for it.
