    Recommended a barrel

    So I bought a Remington 870 from a friend. Nothing wrong with it and not even fired yet. Its got a 28" barrel or whatever comes standard. I'm looking to get a 18" barrel but looked around and found numerous options. It's just going to be for home gun so nothing special is required.

    Thanks

    You can have a gunsmith chop it and reinstall the front bead sight and blue the cut end for maybe $25.

    I'd keep the long barrel in case you ever decide to use the shotgun for something besides HD, and then just get an 18 or 20 inch barrel that you can swap it with. Something like this in whatever finish you shotgun has: 46586 - Remington 870 12 Gauge Security Barrel, 18.5", Plain, Bead Sight, Cylinder Bore Choke, Matte Blue
    I don't know if that is a good price, just the first one i found.
