By comb do you mean adjustable comb ..or just a Monte Carlo (raised comb)style...if its black synthetic and the blueing is a matte finish it sounds like you were sold a deer gun with field barrels,..not exactly a trap model but certainly will work near as well for it

The 26 inch barrel is probably the one your skeet receiver originally came with. All 1187 receivers are basically the same anyway. What made a an 1187 trap gun unique is the trap barrel which would be backbored requiring 3 specially calibrated chokes full trap, extra full trap and super full trap. This barrel also had a higher step rib with a steeper angle which makes the gun shoot higher. This of course needs to be mated with an 1187 straight trap or monte carlo stock or equivalent high combed aftermarket stock. There were 28" 1187 "target" barrels made for 1187 sporting clays models which were neither back bored or step ribbed. Also, if the 28" barrel says "mod" on the barrel like you mentioned, then it was originally a fixed choke and someone had it threaded for chokes which may be aftermarket thinwalls. Early 1187 trap and skeet barrels came with fixed chokes. Later on they came with factory remchokes.
