Hastings barrel is one place, however barrels are about $475.
Midwest Gun Works, not sure if they still carry them.
Barrel exchange
Corson barrels
Ebay

I would buy from Ebay and open up the choke to a minimum Modified. You can rent choke reamers for around $50 OR you can send the barrel to Mike Orlen and have a screw in choke put it for around $90. He does great work and fast return. (no chokes come with the job).

Or
I have a 3" magnum Japanese 28" long vent rib that I had Mike Orlen make ready for screw in chokes, in very good condition. Message me if you're interested.

I bought a Japanese Miroku barrel for my A-5 off of a buddy, and changed out my full choked Belgian for a Modified Miroku...double win!

I had a belgian mag 12 with a factory mod barrel back in the 1990 shot #2 steel shot in it all the time, no damage to the barrel, just open your choke to mod and have at it, traded it back in the 2000 for a 3 1/2 inch black eagle to save about 2 lbs of carry weight.

Last year I bought a 30" fixed full choke japanese barrel off ebay for $175. Orlen cut/opened it to LM. I shot steel 3s & 4s all season with it. Not a scratch in the bore..
