    Anyone have a 28" light contour 1187 barrel they can put on a scale for me?

    Trying to figure out the weight difference between that, a standard weight 1187 barrel, and a fixed choke 1100 barrel.

    I don't know if this will help you but my standard 28" 1100 barrel, with a choke tube in it, weighs exactly 4 ounces heavier than my target counter 30" 1100 barrel, with a choke tube in it.

    The Light contour barrels weigh approximately between 4 and 6 ounces less than their standard counterparts, assuming the same length. The shorter the barrel, the less difference. The longer the barrel, the more difference.

    Do standard weight 1187 barrels weigh the same as fixed choke 1100 barrels, within the gauge and length?

    Yes. There is a slight difference in the outside of the gas chamber (aka barrel hanger) but not enough to make a significant difference for weight. Otherwise the barrels are identical.
