    12g Barrel for R/H Remington 870

    As per the title really.

    I need to replace the barrel on a well-used Remington 12g 870 Express pump-action shotgun or it will have to go in for destruction.

    If anyone has a spare barrel for sale, or knows where I might acquire one at a reasonable price, please PM me.

    TIA

    Have you thought about buying one from the U.S.A. ?
    I'm not sure about the legality but you can look into it, but since there is very little control on such items in the states I think that you may be able to have one posted to you. I know that barrels for shotguns have been available off the supermarket shelve in the past there.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    There are several on the Bay of E, and Cabelas stock them, but all say they may not be sent to the UK/internationally, so I do wonder if that's viable. Does anyone know a source who will ship here?

    That does indeed look promising. I note that it has a 3.5" chamber. The old barrel has a 3" chamber. I don't suppose this will pose any problems if I'm feeding it 2.75" cartridges, but if anyone could confirm this I'll put a bid in.

    Thanks for your helpful suggestions.
