I have an 870 fixed skeet barrel and a set of invector plus extended chokes and want to know if it is possible to have the barrel modified for this? If possible would like some references. Thanks Joe

Your barrel must have a min. OD of at least .860 and a max. bore diameter of .745 (can be smaller however).. if these chokes will work.. I don't think the Remington barrels are that thick.. but if they are.. Stu Wright will do a fine job of installing the Invector plus tubes..

Joe--Since it is a 870 you could probably find another barrel to suit whatever needs you wanted to meet. The price of boring and threading will probably be similar in price to what a used barrel with chokes already installed. Just trying to offer options.

Thanks Matt -- I'm actually using a sportsman 58 TB for trap but have a 26" skeet which I plan on using for the local 5-stand. I'll just have to change barrels for the long shots. A "new to me" 870 barrel will require cutting gas holes as well. Oh well, its the price to shoot vintage guns. Joe

I listed an 870 express barrel w/ screw chokes up here last night, would definitely be a cheaper route for you...

Out of curiosity, is there a gunsmith who still bores gas ports in 870 barrels for use on a Model 58?

Ahlmans in MN still advertises it. Pretty much a nothing job if you have a jig you can clamp onto the band to guide the drill bit.

Briley thin walls will work in your 870 skeet barrel. I have an older 1100 barrel that I had Briley do back in the mid 80's.

skeet man is right that it's pretty easy with a jig. I wonder how much briley would charge? Thin wall chokes aren't cheap, I have them on my O/U tubes, maybe give them a call.
