Shorter Barrel

Post by wbickle » Fri Jun 05, 2020 1:25 am

The 28-inch barrel on my new 12 gauge 870 Express looks to be too unwieldy for home defense. What's the correct part number for a 20-inch barrel, even though it's likely to be OOS?

Because the 28" barrel was made for accurate distance shooting at game and fowl, not home defense. 18" or 20" are better, so you're on track. Try these:
