I've got an older all-steel Remington 870 Wingmaster 3" Magnum.



I have:

18.5" Cylinder/Brass Bead

20" FULL-CHOKE with rifle sights (1 of 20 made for the NY State Troopers in the 80's as a test barrel for buckshot loads 12" groups of 00 at 50yds)

26" Vent-Rib with Rem-Choke (variable choke tubes)

30" Extra-Full Turkey barrel.



You can get almost any barrel for an 870.



Keep your eyes open for a 1980's, or early 90's 870 Wingmaster... They're the best of the best.



Remington has produced just over 10,000,000 870s, last I heard... Pretty good.

I've got a 14.5" modified choke barrel on my duty 870 (which makes it a short barrel shotgun, NFA item), and it'll put quite a few pellets on the target at 25yds, but I can't imagine even a full choke 20" barrel shooting a 12" group at 50yds. That would be something to see....although far less useful at common ranges. R,
