If I remember correctly, I think that hastings made both 32" and 34" barrels for the M870, too.

Remington made a 34" trap barrel for the 870. They come up on the used market from time to time and seem to sell for $350- $450 for just the barrel.

I think I read somewhere that one of the Ducks Unlimited banquet guns might have come with a special 32" barrel, but other than that, I'm not sure you could get 32"

I have never seen a 32" barrel.

Hmmm -- I have a Rem 870 Magnum, Ducks Unlimited Mississippi Edition, The River, DU82 xxxx that my dad purchased at a DU event in I guess 1982. I just measured it and it has a 30" full choke. Maybe they had some longer, I don't know.

The last listing I have in a catalog for Hasting barrels lists them coming in 24", 26", 28", 30", 34", and 36" Oddly enough, no 32"

The only production 32" Remington 870 and 1100 barrels were for the Remington marketed trade Edition 1982 "The Atlantic" 1100 magnum and the 1983 "The Mississippi" 870 Ducks Unlimited guns.

I maybe mistaken but I believe there were about 5,500 of each.

Good Shooting barrels though.

I called a friend that used to work with Hastings and he confirmed what Erik said. I never heard of Hasting's 36" barrel.

My friend also has a M870 DU Missisippi version with 3" VR a 32" barrel.

Hastings did make 36" barrels, I have one for Browning BPS and one for a Remington 870.

How does a 36" barrel swing on a M870?

The one I have now is a left NIB so I have not shot it. But I had a 36" hastings right hand barrel but only shot it at still targets (turkey shoots) so I really don't how it swing.
