That's a great idea, Bob.


...with a 10 rd mag extension it ends about a 1/4" past the muzzle, higher cap is more important than a shorter barrel and you don't ruin it for resale. All 870 expresses come equipped with a modified rem choke easy enough to go buy a skeet tube for buck ,slugs or ball yet maintain it's ability to perform normal abilities. Kingston's 870 is the mag model it would be stupid to cut down that barrel. Fact is if he don't wanna go the Express route an after market barrel is another possibility. Lot a things a guy can do before getting stupid and sawing off the barrel of a collector gun. Mb



I'm liking this idea. Where can I get a vintage blued 10rd mag extension? I'll still need another bbl to open up to cyl bore or slightly less.

Finding ammo for this is going to be much harder than finding an 870 barrel.

Any wagers on Kingston keeping this thread alive until New Years?

He hasn’t even started opening all those hidden paint cans. Could have coins, gold, greenbacks, or jewelry inside.

Is that what happened? I thought maybe they let him on Facebook, or maybe he went on vacation or something.

No way he was let on the facebook page. That was started to get away from the constant juvenile sheit slingers.

Jeebus Kingston. I never would've thought that Remmy barrels would become so rare.

Got this one from Midway a 20 incher Rem choked rifle sighted and gloss blued. I had my gunsmith friend bead blast and reblue so to match the express action. Much better for turkey or predators.

Not Midway, but another site last night had "Sold Out" on every 870 barrel they normally stock. Barrels specifically for Wingmaster models were listed as "Discontiued".

I'm guessing there was a run on shorter barrels when the riots started and the rifle sighted ones for deer season too.
