870 with a thingy on the barrel

My 870 tactical has a thing that is removable from the end of the barrel,,it has sharp points on the end. I think the purpose for it is SD issues,,,,,my question,,does this provide any choke for a tighter pattern with my oo buck shot load ?

It is a choke. I think it's just a standard cylinder bore.

It is a cop killing clip of mass destruction.

It's a breacher. The idea is that you can press the muzzle against a door and destroy the wood around the lock. Unless you are SWAT it is useless. I would just remove it and use a regular flush choke.

That is what I was maybe thinking it could be but I wanted to be sure. Yep, I will remove it and stash it in a drawer.

Thanks

Yep, it's a Stand Off Breaching choke. It lets the barrel be a bit away from the lock and the sharp things on the end let it dig into the wood so it'll bite into the door and stay put while you're blowing off the lock.

I'd leave it in case you need to fight with your gun if you run out of ammo or want something less then lethal. A good jab in the chest to a bad guy would get his attention really fast.

If 6 rounds of OO buck shot have not got the BG to change his mind, a poke with an ouchy isn't going to do much.

Watch the video and you'll see that not every situation needs a load of 00 Buck.
Many times you need less then lethal force and that little breeching device would be almost as good as a bayonet for hand to hand.

It is not a breeching device nor a stand off and should you try to use it as such you will be breathing powdered lead. Remington does not call it a Breeching device nor make any claims that is a Breeching device. Remington calls it the Remington Tactical Choke and it is made for Remington by Haskinator. We lovingly call it the Remington Tactical Joke. or Rem Joke for short. It does nothing but add 1.5" to the length of your gun. It is cyl bore and not even a good Cyl Bore as shot flies every where and slugs wobble out of it.

Stop and think. There no barrels made for or offered on the 870 Police that are threaded for choke tubes. Choke tubes are for small shot not buck and slugs. Thus no 870P barrels come threaded. The Rem Joke only comes on the Express Tactical and is Marketed for the Civilian Tacti-fool Market. You can correct this error in judgment simply by screwing that silly mess off and replace it with an IC or Modified tube. You will thank me later.

I think the idea is the poke with an ouchy is supposed to come before the 6 rounds of 00. But I'm with you, I'm not getting that close to a BG.

If anyone wants to buy a Remington 18.5 inch barrel with the fake breacher and several Rem chokes, let me know. I'm ready to go back to iron sights mounted on the barrel.

It is either the matte black or the black Poly coat. Those are the only two they make. Remington does make any 870 Police barrel that is threaded for Rem Choke and only the Police barrels are parkerized. However, he could have had it parkerized but unlikely.

Price? I would like a shorter barrel for 870. I am not up on exactly what barrels fit which 870s. Or are all 12 guages interchangeable? (except 3.5" shell ones of course)
