Remington 870 barrel questions
I have a 870 with a 28" barrel. Does Remington’s 18 1/2" barrels come threaded for chokes or are they fixed?

Without actually checking into it, short barrels are usually setup for slugs.

In the future I want to put a shorter barrel on. I want it to be able to take chokes.

I really doubt if you will find an 18 1/2" or 20" barrel with screw-in chokes, at least a Remington barrel. I just finished installing screw-in chokes in one of my 20" barrels. You can see how it is done by going to . Click on the photos in each post.
If you have any questions about it, feel free to ask.

Not sure if Remington offers these barrels for sale separately, but the 870 express tactical has a 18.5" barrel threaded for chokes. This is a close up of my barrel with the tactical choke installed.

Go to midway USA they have the barrels. I have a 20 inch barrel with chokes. I know u can get a 18 r 18.5 but not sure if they r choked. I'm looking to get a 26 inch barrel for it to shoot skeets. The barrel I looked at was $270
