Been looking for a Remington 870 Express Magnum 12g 20" improved cylinder bead sight matte finish barrel. Looking and looking and looking but no find. I can find endless variation but not that one. WTF? I don't want rifle sights or a coyote finish....or an 18" as cool as those may be.

I'm guessing matte blue....the shotty almost looks parked.


Any ideas?

An Express Magnum plain bead barrel will most commonly be 18 inches, Cylinder bore.

A Wingmaster barrel may be what fits your wants, although it would be a polished blued barrel.

Would you comment a little more about that? I'm interested to hear about it.
Not sure I could do a barrel chop without fugging it up though...

No need to clip a $ 200.00 barrel unless you are threading it for choke tubes.

Get a turkey barrel......that's what I have on mine. 21 inches, and you can use whatever choke you want. Vent rib, but I love it!

CDNN has 12ga. 20" 870 barrels on sale this week for $69.99. For another ten bucks you can get a cool tactical heat shield...

Thanks alphadog but I'm scared of those CDNN barrels, made in China, right? Can they take a lickin and keep on tickin? I'd rather get a remy barrel which I think should be very robust.

The easiest thing to do might be get this one and refinish however you like.

Don't have any personal experience with them. I have a 20" Remington slug barrel on a 870, with a 3 round mag extension. I find the iron sights that are on it to be functional and quick enough to acquire a target. YMMV.

Thanks everyone for your help. Looks like I will have to raise some extra money to pop for that barrel. Ran into a "overspent" wall. I need to get rid of a bunch of stuff anyways...which suks coz I don't want to get rid of anything.

The Mossberg Police 500A will just have cover all the bases until the remy is brought up to snuff.

Walmart has plenty of 100 round packs of 12g #7.5 and #8 shot, $19.95. That's about 20 cent a round....stack it up!
