    Mike Orlen ... without question or hesitation. $45, plus shipping. Amazing turnaround, too.

    Yes, Mike Orlen, but I can't imagine anyone going to even that small expense and that much trouble to get an I/C out of a Mod

    Why doesn't he want a barrel with a screw in choke? There are plenty of them out there.

    It's more simple to change a choke tube than it is to change a barrel, and extra choke tubes can be carried in a pouch, vs carrying extra barrels. Maybe he thinks choke tubes are some new fangled technology?

    I'm thing about getting a kit and doing one of my plain barrels to see how well it would work. If don't do well, I cut it down for a extra combat barrel.
    It should not be hard to do, I use build racing engines and done alot of boring and machine work.
    Whats more fun than shooting, being on trap.com.

    Are you talking about opening the choke up, or converting the barrel to screw in choke tubes? There's quite a bit of difference in the difficulty of the two. If you don't have Jerry Kuhnhausen's book on the 870, 1100 and 12187 shotgun, you might want to get it. It has a section on adding screw in choke tubes, along with the problems that occur.

    It is very simple to ream out a choke. It is very difficult to ream out a choke correctly.

    nsrailroad- You live in the same area as perhaps the best, or certainly one of the best, barrel men in the world (Tom Wilkinson). I would have the job done right or not do it at all. A new barrel might overall be the most cost effective way to go. For a little money, you could get two barrels for the shotgun. Or you could spend $50 and end up without a good barrel for the gun.
