    These guns typically have the best chokes Remington ever made. I would shoot it before I did anything to it. It is going to be hard to make this grand old gun break a target any harder. It will be easy to hurt the performance and value of the gun.

    If you keep your head on the gun and your eyes on the target, the tight choke is NOT a handicap.

    Please don't mess with the finest barrels Remington ever produced! If you feel compelled to have choke tubes, buy a newer 870.

    The 870 comp barrels were hand massaged at the factory. They will all measure a little different, but all preform flawlessly.

    All Good,

    Would a standard 870 or 1100 barrel fit it? I know they have some sort of gas system to soften the recoil so if pens wanted tubes, could he just use another barrel and tube away?

    Barrels aren't interchangable. You can put a standard 870 barrel on a comp, but not the other way. You also loose the recoil system once this is done.

    The 870 comps are unto themselves on a lot of the parts. The stock and the trigger is interchangable, but most everything else in comp only.

    All Good,
