Does anyone know if a barrel from the 887 will fit onto a 870 Express Super Magnum? I'd like to have a shorter barrel for my 870 but the shortest one available in 3 1/2" is 23", I'd like to find one in 20" or less.

Thanks!

Saw this at one vendor site: "NOTE: The only parts on the new Remington 887 shotgun that interchange with the Remington 870 shotgun are the choke tubes and recoil pad, nothing else."


What choke are you looking for?

Having a barrel cut down -- and threaded for tubes if desired -- isn't a big deal. Mike Orlen(on the gunsmithing board) has a good reputation for barrel work, as do some of the choke tube manufacturers.

Thanks! Actually, all I want is an 18" to 20" plain barrel (no rib) cylinder bore in 3 1/2". I know I can find 3" barrels all day long but I want the versatility to feed it any length of 12ga cartridge that might be available. I have a Benelli Nova and would like to add that option (3 1/2") to my 870, I like my 870.

Appreciate the info on the parts inter-changeability.
