Hey Guys:

I just put my money on a Remington 870 Express from Big 5 for 290 out the door, I tried it in store and it sure got a nice action.

I was digging through the archive in TFL and somebody mentioned that the Mossberg 500 18.5 inch barrel fits the 870, can someone confirm or dis-prove that? I Have a Mossberg and would be nice to use it on the 870 once in a while

THanks,

CalNRA

Not a direct answer to your question, but I know Mossberg makes [aftermarket] barrels for the 870 :)

The Mossberg 500 barrel will not fit... as mentioned above, Mossberg does make replacement barrels for several different models, the Remington 870 being one of them.

Thanks guys.

Is there a shop in the Bay Area that carries the barrel? On Brownells the replacement 18.5 inch barrels cost around 120 bucks, a lot of dough for a barrel(makes me glad I also have my Mossberg)

We don't stock it, but I could get it for you for about $110.
