The factory barrel on my 870 is just too long and its driving me nuts. Anyone have a short one laying around you'd like to sell?

I just bought another 870 with a 21” barrel. It shoots twice as good of a pattern at 40 than my 26” 870 super magnum with the same choke and load. Midwest Gun Works did have new 21” 870 barrels for $200. I got an email saying they are back in stock.

EScout turned me on to a great deal too:


I'm trying to pick out the right one and I stumbled a little.
What the heck is a breecher barrel?

I just want 18.5" that can take a 3.5" round, with the rail on top so I can use sights instead of a bead.

Yeah, everyone I've talked to so far said the 18.5" shot just as good as the long barrel.

The shortest I’ve seen for a 3.5” is 23
