Are they interchangeable?

Nope.

I've never personally tried it, and it may actually work to a degree as they are similar, but with the abundance of barrels for both models on the market it really isn't worth it.

Remington says don't. Since they made them both I'd listen.......

They are different, the gas system is slightly different.
11-87 barrel has a gas cylinder spring and needs a a gas cylinder
collar in place to keep the gas cylinder spring from popping off during firing.
I expect that there other engineering reasons as well.

Actually that's a little bassackward. The gas cylinder collar is held in place by the spring. The 11-87 deer barrels aren't even shipped with a spring to hold the collar in place. You simply put the collar on and the forend holds it in place. It will work just fine without the spring but the spring is handy for keeping the collar attached.

I never got far enough along in the experiment to check out the Gas system, the real issue for me was the discovery that the extractor cut on the 11-87 barrel did not line up perfectly with the extractor on my 1100, I stoped right there!:)

Good Luck & Be safe
