    Yes it will work but there is a little difference in the light contour bbls, but I don't know exactly how different---I think it might have something to do with the forearm.

    It will work just fine. Don't use 3" shells in the 2 3/4 barrel. The barrel will fit in the reciever with no problems.

    I just purchased an older 870 wingmaster magnum 12ga(3in) with trap wood on it. I switch off using the 3 inch barrel along with a trap barrel.
