Thread: Extra long 3 1/2" chambered 870 barrel?

    Extra long 3 1/2" chambered 870 barrel?

    I was talking to someone the other day who was convinced that 36" long 3 1/2" chambered shotguns were in common use among British wildfowlers and that barrels like that for a Remington 870 would be easy to find.

    I've never heard about this before, and have tried Google to no avail. Is he havering? Or do these actually exist?

    Marlin make a 36" bolt action 12g

    Remington don't to the best of my knowledge do any 36" barrels for any of their shotguns.

    As for the 3.5 inch chambered 870 pump I tried to find one a few years back but they weren't being imported due to the release of the 887.

    I bought an 887 and have regretted it ever since. Its a heap of crap. I have seen a few 870's since then in 3.5 chambering, once I can afford it I will trade the 887 in and get one of those as the 870 is a cracking shotgun.

    To answer your question though I think your mate is talking out of his behind.

    Shotguns in 12 bore with 3 1/2" chambers have only been available since the advent of steel shot so most guns only have 30-32" barrels.
    Shotguns in 10 bore with 3 1/2" chambers have been available for donkeys years but are not common in anything over 32-34" barrels
    Shotguns in 4 bore - 8 bore that burn black powder were allways built with extra long barrels
