    At the risk of embarrassing myself I have a question I am going to ask anyway. Does anyone know if a 28 gauge 1100 barrel can be modified to fit a 28 ga. 870? I know there is the gas port issue and it would take some work but can it be done and does anyone know by whom? They don't make anything longer than 26" for the 870. Thanks for not laughing (too hard). Mike.

    Mike, there are aftermarket barrels out there for the 870. Most have chokes as well, not sure how many are out there for the two smaller gauges, but I would look into that option long before you hack up a good 1100 barrel. Cabales had them in the 12 ga. I know. Good Luck and Break-em all. Jeff

    Try Corsons Barrels. He has several 28 ga 870 barrels, all around $250.

    I shoot a 28 ga 870 and understand your desire. You might consider adding a cutts comp to a barrel to acheive the length/weight you want. I have both a skeet and a cutts barrel and prefer the cutts barrel.
    regards
