I have a 20 ga. BSS with 26"barrels. Seems stubby to me. Need to rent a barrel stretcher to get 28" barrels. Thanks.

HA!......all the better to carry 'muzzle-down' with your trigger hand around the grip without getting mud in the barrels. :mrgreen:

A slight modification will give you the "appearance" of 28 inch barrels. All you have to do is shorten the forend wood about 2 inches and you automatically now have 2 more inches of barrel length. You are welcome. :wink: :)

Hmmm. Send it to me and I’ll send you something back with 30” barrels in 12ga, plus a hacksaw. Boom! We both win!

You’ll probably want a second bead and a longer case with that new barrel.

Hastings metro extension from years past should fit the bill. You might get her out to 45”.

Send the barrel to Briley to have removeable chokes installed, and specify extended chokes.
