    What's a "Target Barrel" rem-choke and what is it's specific use? I know what the rem-choke is, just not the purpose of the barrel. Is it a good barrel for trap? I've got a 870 Wingmaster with a full fixed choke and I'm looking for a replacement barrel to spread the shot out a bit for a new 14 year old trap shooter.

    Thanks, Blueraven

    I believe if the barrell is stamped target it is backbored. Backboring is done to reduce recoil. I recently bought a 11-87 premiere trap and the barrell is stamped target and so is my 870 tc. Hope I answered your question BOB

    Some of the target barrels were back bored, but not all of them.

    Other differences include that 12 guage target barrels w ere 2 3/4" chambered and some had slightly different ribs one them.

    you could easily use a regular field gun 870 barrel set up for choke tubes and put in a more open choke tube for the youngster to get going with.
