Where do you get this info? My super mag is 25 inch and my cousin has a longer smooth bore barrel and a 22 inch slug barrel.

Right from their website.

It's a bullpup design which the barrel travels the full length of the gun as the chamber is in the butt stock.

Most standard 870 Express's have an 18 or 18.5" barrel. That seems to be the most popular model. Of course there are other barrels and setups available, but run of the mill 870's usually have that. Anyways my point was 18.5" is not a short barrel, especially for a Tactical shotgun application.

the shortest I've seen on 870 s in stores around here is 21" and those are slug barrels. but it could be location, I'm here in Chicago

First 4 are 18" excluding the youth models, then it gets into the sporter models with the longer barrels. I'm not a hunter so I often oversee these models. Surely you wouldn't use the KSG for hunting anyways, so naturally I figured we were talking about tactical application shotguns. Anyways, maybe its a stretch saying "most" 870's, but it seems to be a rather popular barrel length. Mainly because it's the shortest you can have by law, without paying the 5$ tax to have a short barreled shotgun.

My main point is, 18.5" is not a short barrel, for a shotgun with tactical applications in mind. 14.5", that's a shorty.
