    Here's one for the Remington experts regarding the "870 special field" model.Did Remington offer any barrel lengths other than 21" ? I am looking for a 26" barrel for this model if they actually made them in that lenghth. If not, did Remington make any other 870's with the 3 shot magazine that I could get a 26" barrel for, to fit the 3 shot Special field model? I look forward to your replies, regards, Donald Robb.

    Not 100% sure, but I think they made a 23" barrel for 870 special fields. regards, Ed

    Don't know if they made an 870 skeet gun but if they did it probably came with a 26 inch barrell.

    I don't think special field barrels and regular 870 barrels will interchange.

    I had a 20 ga 870 special field with a 23" barrel. I think they only made them one year with that barrel length.. Don't know if they made it in 12 ga also. Was made in 1989 I think.

    The Special Field 870s have a shorter magazine tube than a regular 870, therefore the barrel forend hanger is moved closer to the receiver. Other 870 barrels will not interchange.

    The Upland guns had 23" barrels, but they have a standard length mag tube.

    Have a competent gunsmith move the barrel hanger on any barrel you want. I had it done for $150.00 including re-blue. Hope this helps.
