In 1980 or 81 I paid about $160 for my 870m with a 30 inch full choke barrel. A year or two later I bought a 26 inch improved cylinder barrel for dove & quail. Somewhere about 2002 I ordered a 26 inch vent rib Remchoke barrel from Cabelas. In April of this year I had the 30 inch barrel cut to 18.5 inches. I still do not have $600 invested in the gun.
Are you having your 870 gold plated?
