    So today one of my regular clients - a bad ass cowgirl - turned me onto a Remington 12ga shotgun barrel. Turns out her neighbor was cleaning his new shotgun when it went off and blew a hole through the roof. Heh heh. No one was hurt but his wife proceeded to take his shotgun apart and distribute the parts around the neighborhood.
    Anyway, question is how can I tell if this will fit my Remington 870 express? Besides dismantling it. It's stamped Remington 12ga 2 3/4 - 3 in magnum.

    How long is the barrel? What choke is stamped on the side? If I am not mistaken, the express and Wingmaster have interchangeable barrels. If it's a 30" and you want to sell it, let me know. I need one for my trap competitions.

    I'd get it back to the original owner. His wife has no sense of humor.

    I see it is fitted with the Remington Pro Bore threaded choke. If you can find the tool, unscrew it and read what choke it is set up for.

    I got no tool Hav. And I didn't measure the entire length. I will say the inside of the barrel is like a mirror.

    An ordinary 'two-legged' spanner will work, with a little filing.

    Actually, a pair of needle nose pliers held carefully will remove the choke insert.

    No reason for a left-hand thread in the choke tube. No good reason for it on wheel lugs either, but Buick used to have them.

    For those folks scratching their heads over this, I just wanted you all to know that Ernesto is one hell of a professional flooring expert. Here is one of his last jobs, and as you can see, he sure as hell can work with his hands. :metal2:

    Thanks Hav, I don't do much tile anymore but I looove the smell of grout in the morning!

    I'd rather do hardwood these days. At 60 years old it's getting tougher to get up off the floor. Here's one I did for some Wisconsinites, they turned me on to a cheese head hat and a GB sweatshirt. Great people. The steps were concrete and one inch out in 8ft.

    Couldn't find my needle nose pliers so I just stuck my index finger in there and it came out easy, like not even tight.

    Wow, that's pretty inexpensive. Does that include an interchangeable one?

    Those are the interchangeable ones. As far as I know, they do not make one that adjusts to several different chokes.

    Well c'mon over and get it. One would think you could pop in a new sleeve.

    I have a versa choke in my Browning Citori. My biggest concern is forgetting to screw down a choke inside, because I'm sure those threads would turn to mush after a few shots and I'd have to either replace the barrel or get a gunsmith to clean up them threads.
