Will it fit the Remington 870? Th reason I didn't get a slug barrel myself was it was almost the price of a new rifle. But if you are hunting in shotgun only then I understand. I shoot my 20 gauge Remington 870 with Federal rifled slugs and I can hit an 8 inch plate at 200 yards with it. Have you tried the rifled slugs for your shotgun?

I get about 6" group out of my 870 and it has a full choke. Try the rifled slugs first. Slugs are fun :aggressive:

My brother takes a white tail every year in NY with a 12ga Browning 30" full choke and slugs. Has shot one between the eyes using just the bead on the barrel. Full isn't the first choice but it will work.

I got one of those Mossburg combo deals, (rifled barrel with cantilever scope mount and Burris scope.) I think I paid about $160 for it last year. I purchased this for hog hunting in shotgun only areas. It fits the 870 very well, and I LOVE the increased accuracy of the Sabot slug.

It fits the 870 very well,

Really ? I had no idea the Mossburg and Remington barrels were interchangeable. All of them or just certain models and gages?

Mossberg makes a barrel designed to fit the Rem. 870. The standard Mossberg 500 or 835 barrels do not fit any other Makes or Models of guns.
