Can I change barrel

Post by Lupton41 » Wed Jul 26, 2017 3:04 am

I read a lot about changing out barrels. I got the express tactical. Short barrel. But if I want to switch out when I go hunting can I do that or do I need a whole new gun.

Wouldn't be worst thing in the world lol just curious

As I mentioned in your other thread, there is a spacer you can get that will let you install standard 870 barrels on your special receiver. It's really not an ideal solution, but it's a heck of a lot cheaper and easier than having a gunsmith move a barrel's guide ring forward. If you want to get serious about hunting or clays, a second shotgun would probably be the way to go.
