Remington 870 Tactical Rplacement Barrel Problem and How to Fix it
Very important info from Remington 870 Forum:
So I have this 870 express tactical but it’s the version that doesn’t have sights or added magazine extension.
I recently bought a 21″ vent rib barrel with choke in hopes to do some turkey hunting this coming season. The problem is my shotgun has the extended magazine tube but it’s one piece so the cap is all the way at the end. With this 21″ barrel the guide ring that goes around the tube is further down than the stock barrel and the cap doesn’t hold the barrel in place.
My question is, is there anyway I can use this barrel with this gun? Would a barrel clamp do the trick in keeping the barrel in place or can I just not use this barrel. I know this gun is meant for home defense but I was hoping to be able to make it an all around use kind of gun.
Here’s a pic of the two barrels so you can see how the guide rings are in different places.
In case anyone cares, I cut down a piece of PVC pipe as a barrel spacer/sleeve. Went shooting today and it held up nice. Painted it black and doesn’t look bad at all. Will definitely use this setup for the occasional turkey hunting.
