Hello,

I am wanting to buy a shotgun that I can interchange the barrel for a rifled slug barrel for sabots. Does anyone have a recommendation for what shotgun would be good for this. Price range is under 1000.

I do a lot of public hunting here in Texas and many of them require slugs. I also do a lot of bird hunting so I want to be able to interchange the barrels on the same gun.

Thanks.

Remington. Your research is done. Now, just decide between an 870 or 1100.

Or Mossberg. They have many options available, and at a lower cost than Remington.
I own both. Both good guns, but very different.

Even with only these two brands you have multiple options.

Another 870 vote. Consider Remington's 26"/28" field + 20" rifled barrels combo and you could pick up a third 18-20" Police smooth bore barrel for HD buckshot, ammo and a couple of handy tweaks yet still stay in budget. More even if you shop used. And aftermarket support is endless.

No, it's not a fancy Beretta or Benelli, but it's proven dead nuts reliable, feeds/shoots everything and don't rattle either... :wink:

Either will have what you want to do. You'll need to handle each to see if the feel is right for you. One major difference is the position of the safety. Otherwise, go with the one that feels best to you.

This is how a Vang Comp Big Dome Safety is functionally installed on an 870(P).
It pretty much comes off "automatically" when your index finger slides down off the receiver onto the trigger...

Mossberg 590a1. You can use any Mossberg 835 barrels (just do NOT use 3.5" shells, which won't chamber in a 590a1 action anyway). Or you can go the other way, and get a 835 from the getgo, and add shorter or rifled barrels (590a1 barrels work on an 835). Love the system.

Have a Remington 870p, too, and while I prefer the Mossy, Remington's not bad either. If you want a semi-auto go Remington.
