Anybody know if there are replacement barrels out there to be had? I would like to get one that can shoot steel and have interchangeble chokes. I sent a email to Ithaca about a week ago and have not received a reply as yet.

I am in the same boat as you. All of my research points to having the barrel set up for screw in choke tubes.

The problem with doing this, as told to me by good people at colonial arms is that Ithaca made 3 different barrels on these shotguns.

The thinest barrel, they can't install them on, the second thinest is a "maybe" and the thickest is a "no problem".

Of course my barrel is in the "maybe" category.

I have the numbers (measurements) written down at my office. I will post them tomorrow.

I had the choke on my Mag-10 opened up from full to mod at first. I was told there would be no problem and there wasn't, even after 7 flats of shells. Later, I had the barrel cut down to 25" and had choke tubes installed. A replacement barrel would be much more than tubes or opening the choke, the last one I saw was 6-7 years ago and they wanter $300 for it back then. I've heard the SP-10 barrel can be made to fit but that would cost more than finding another Mag-10.

So you are telling me that you have shot 7 flats of steel? That would be good to know. Also how long was your barrel befor you cut it down?

I shot 7 flats of steel after I had my barrel opened up to mod and before I added choke tubes. That was back in 1985. In the winter of 1991 I had the barrel cut down from the original 32" to 25" and my local gunsmith added choke tubes. I have another 10+ flats through it since then. I shoot mainly BB, BBB, and T shot through mine, seldom anything else. My Mag-10 is a late 1978 manufacture as best as I can tell.

This info is from Colonial Arms, (800) 949-8088.

Measure the diameter of your barrel, 2 inches from the muzzle.

If it measures .910 there will be no problem installing choke tubes.

If it measures .899, they can possibly do it.

If it measures .890 they cannot do it.

They charge $65.00 plus choke tubes. Steel shot tubes are $25.00 each.

They promise a 10 day turn around.

If you are willing to have the barrel cut down from the original 32 inches, you might want to take a measurement at the minimum length you would be willing to have it cut.

I also checked with Briley. They were quoting over $200.00 for their services. Hoped this helped.
