Remington 870 Finishes

I have a question hopefully one of you can answer. I have an 870P MAX with the parkerized finish. I'm looking for a 26 or 28 inch ventilated barrel with a matching finish and adjustable chokes and pretty close if not matching finish. I've seen the Remington ads showing a matte finish and I'm not sure if that is the same thing. I've sent a couple of e-mails to Remington asking the same question and have as of yet to receive a response. I have a stock forend to replace the Surelight forend when I go hunting (I don't want to look too commando-like when I'm in the field hunting pheasent and duck.) I also am looking for a magazine plug to limit the capacity to three shells which is state law in Illinois. The magazine plug will need to work with the factory Remington magazine extention. I figure if worse comes to worse I can probably make one. But if there is one for sale that is less than $20.00 then it's worth my time and effort to buy it. Any help you guys and gals can provide would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!

the remington matte finish barrels are blued over bead blast finishes. I'd find the barrel you want then get it parkerized if possible. i hear parkerizing is not to hard to do, but not sure if the original finish needs to be stripped off.

i have a 30 inch blued bbl with a VR sight and was thinking about cutting it down someday and putting a choke in it.

You will have to make you own because the police models never have a vent rib.
