    Okay, all you guys and gals who want Hastings to make their nice high-ribbed trap barrel for Remington's 870 need to make your wishes known. Shotgun Sports Magazine editor-in-chief Johnny Cantu will be speaking with the powers that be from Hastings at the SHOT Show and promised me he would mention this barrel to them but wonders if they will anticipate sufficient demand to make production of a new barrel worthwhile. That's where we come in.

    The contact link on Hastings website seems to be broken right now, so use the link above to pass your feelings along to them via the magazine. I already have.

    Gary's right - the barrels have visibly higher ribs but only shoot marginally higher than OE barrels. But they are better looking and throw patterns that rival the "good old" 1100 barrels with less constriction. For those of us with an overbored 870 "Target" barrel, these offer the larger bore without the pre-choke tube taper. I've wanted one for my 870TC ever since I bought the one that now is on my 1100TT.

    The replies sent to the magazine have come to the attention of Johnny Cantu, who will be conferring with the Hastings folks tomorrow about producing this barrel. As I learn more, I'll pass it along.

    Thanks for the push!
