    Shotgun noob, sorry. Are Remington's more or less interchangeable? I found one on a local forum with a 28" barrel, but I was looking for one with an 18" barrel for home defense. If I buy this one, is it easy to change out the parts?

    Only caveat is that the "Super Magnum" that accepts 3.5" shells do have a few more proprietary parts.

    So if I'm saving $100 on the shotgun, it might not be worth it if I'm really looking for one with an 18" barrel.

    Unless you want to turn around and sell the 28" barrel.

    Mossberg makes some 18." 870 barrels that you can find for around $120 NIB

    if it's just going to be an HD gun, just measure the barrel and cut the fucker.

    This might be a silly question...but how come the shotgun is so much longer than the box it is sitting on...Does remington ship longer shotguns in pieces?
     
  16. It's a perspective thing. The shotgun is close than the box, so it looks bigger.

    It's pretty common for shotguns to come with the barrel detached.
