Just picked up an 870 comp with a ported barrel. There are 2 rows of eight ports then a break and then 2 rows of 4 on each side of the barrel. Anybody know who might have done the work?

Makes one wonder what else they attempted to do to one of Remington's better barrels is the choke still factory or been opened up?

Took it out to the grease board this morning. All I can say is wow. Definitely has not been opened up.

I'd also like to see a photo of this barrel. I bought an 870 Competition years ago that came with two barrels, one of which had been ported. I sold that barrel but wonder if yours could be that barrel.

kingman,
From your description of the Porting pattern it could very well be Angle Port by Ballistic Specialties. However seeing pics. would be a lot more helpful. So I cannot be for certain.

It sounds a lot like the factory porting that was done on the Remington 90T.

Pics for people who wanted to see the barrel. Other pic is off the comb hardware. Is this homemade?

Nitro27man will have the official answer to this question I just talked to him about another 870 comp question. Kingman FYI he is a retired factory rep owns 3 870 comps and I currently own 2 with one as NIB.

That's a shame, I don't believe that any 870 Comps came ported. It was one of the best barrels Rem ever came out with, it'd turn a target inside out.

JMHO, Pat

The name of that porting pattern is on the tip of my tongue but it just won't move any farther! I owned a used Krieghoff Model 32 that had that same porting and there is a name for it but damned if I can think of it. The 870 Comp barrel I had was ported with oval ports with no separation between groups.

It's Seitz style porting. Allems still does it aftermarket, as does Ken Eyster. Anyone with a jig can do it, so there's is NO way to tell who actually did it.
