where to find used barrels

I'm looking for a place to find and buy a cheap used extra barrel for my 870. Any ideas, or better yet, does anyone have anything for sale themselfs. I'm preferably looking for a 26"+ 3" chamber w/ rem choke to use to shoot clays.

I bought one off Gun Broker - IIRC with shipping it was $79.

I was having a hard time finding a used barrel -just got lucky

Best price on a new barrel for my Remington 870 was from Mossberg - $120 I think.

BTW - Walmart has a wood stock Remington 870 - saw it today $257 + tax - comes with 1 choke (modified).

Much over $100 for a barrel might as well just buy the whole gun -

That's tempting.
I've got a 12 ga. 26", 3" chambered 870 Express barrel that I took off the Express that I set up for my daughter.

It's never had a round put through it, and it's sitting in the back of the safe.

I just figured that I'd keep it to use with the 870 Express rifled slug gun that I've got, to extend it's seasons.

Most old time gunshops have a bin full of them.

Just an update, but today I went skeet shooting for the first time and did quite well despite having a 18" cylinder bore pump. Did not have a chance to try out trap, but that might be more difficult with the short barrel

New barrels are certainly overpriced. I paid through the nose for a Remington 870 18.5" Rem choke plain barrel last year, just HAD to have it to make my shotgun more versatile. Stuck an IC choke tube in it as soon as it arrived and haven't changed tubes since. I have a couple other shotguns I actually use, the 870 just stands in my closet.

You also may want to check out a few of your local pawn shops. I've seen a lot of them there.

I wish my 18.5 inch barrel had the ability to swap out chokes -

I don't know how much it costs Remington to thread the barrel to accept chokes -

I will GUESS $5 + $2 for a choke. Would be 20X more if you took it to a place to get it done to a plain barrel.

If two guns were side by side - one had the cylinder bore - the other had the ability to replace the choke -

I will bet many guys would fork over an extra $25-$30 to get this feature.

Plus many would run out and buy extra choke tubes which must be a high margin item.

Remington are you listening?

Call you local gun shops. They tend to have used barrels in stock most of the time.

You might not have overpaid. The 18.5 barrels with screw in chokes are quite a bit higher than regular cylinder bore, no choke models.
