Bought a 870 barrel because it was 18 1/2” long and took chokes. Came with a improved cylinder breacher choke that adds about 1 1/2”. Is this choke have any advantage over a flush IC choke for home defense? It’s a Remington factory choke and does have ports

No, but if you stick it in someone’s forehead, it could be uncomfortable.

But seriously, unless you’re going to be using breaching rounds on your own doors, no. No real disadvantages either though

Some people just have to have what the authorities use no matter how impractical. This is why you see "operators" who live in Wisconsin who have their AR painted in desert camo.

It looks super cool to all your friends.

That's the only "advantage", unless of course you are actually doing Door Breachings.........

Nope. No reduction in recoil, looks stupid (my opinion), and it's pretty unlikely you're going to be breaching doors. I took mine off as soon as I got the gun and bought a flush modified choke.

Goes well with yellow plaid pants and rainbow suspenders?

Anything beyond an 870 with a legal barrel and maybe a light isn’t necessary ( jmho )

When breacher rounds are really used they are loaded with special rounds containing magnesium dust, the shooter wears heavy gloves and a helmet with a full face shield and if he engages in further combat he switches to another weapon.

Thanks for that info. I have experience and have no use for anything magnesium. I’ve seen it’s effects. My only use for my 870 are home defense, Turkey, hog. I have no use for the breacher choke
