I'm looking for an inexpensive barrel to cut down (within legal specs) for my 870 Magnum.

My 870 is one of the "Special Purpose" series, with the matte finish on all of the metalwork. A matte or parkerized plain 12 ga. barrel would be perfect, any length is okay since I'll be pruning it down to either 18" or 20" for home defense.

Any suggestions or comments concerning sights? I'd love to hear 'em.

Cabela's has Remington 20",rifle sight barrels for $104.95. No fuss, no muss, no broken hacksaw blades.
