View Full Version : Barrels for Rem870 Marine Magnum??

December 1, 2001, 11:24 PM
I've got a Remington 870 Marine Magnum and would like to
put a 26" or 28" barrel on it. Does anyone carry replacement
barrels which won't look odd on this nickle plated gun?
Is there a way to coat or blue the nickle so a standard barrel
will match?

If you don't need the nickel plating, I bet you could easily sell the gun and buy what you're looking for with $$ left over for ammo.

If you want the nickel, just get whatever barrel you want and have it plated.

I personally don't see a blued/parkerized barrel on that thing.
It looks so pretty as it is.

I dunno, some two tone guns look pretty good, like the GM with hard chromed frame and blue slide.

Robar, if still in the business, does nice plating.

Thanks for the suggestion.
How do I get in touch with Robar or some other company
who could match the plating?
How much should it cost?

Dunno, I haven't looked lately at prices, but a search for Robar(Once and possibly now associated with McMillan rifles) may turn up something.
