10.5" Barrel

Anyone know who sells a 10.5" Barrel for the 870? I have a Form 1 that's about to clear within the next couple of weeks hopefully.

I've never heard of a factory 10.5" barrel.

The thing is, a standard 12ga 870 has a 4-round magazine tube, and the barrel's guide ring has to come right up to the magazine cap on the end. This limits the barrel length to about a 12" minimum. If you want a shorter barrel, you need to build on a receiver with a non-standard magazine tube like the 3-round Special Field or MCS (Remington does make a 10" breaching barrel for the MCS), or a custom-made 3- or 2-round shorty receiver. Then you'll also need a custom or special short fore-end assembly.

This post has some pictures (I can't post them here directly because Photobucket sucks).
