    Can any of you 870 guys tell me if a Sportsman 58 barrel (with gas holes) be used on an 870? I know one could plug them up but can they be used as is? If so would there be a noticable performance hit? I admit this could be dumb question!

    Fit is fine. If you don't mind gas possibly cutting into your magazine tube over time, don't plug. I plugged mine as well as the 870 barrels I drilled out for the 58.

    I think I used a #6 hex head screw.
