Used Barrels

Does anyone know a good source for used SG barrels? I'm looking for a smooth slug barrel for a Remington 1100 to use as a HD gun so I don't want to spend a fortune. Thanks

A used gun store / pawn shop ...in my area .....has a box in the corner of the shop with about 2 dozen barrels in it ...and will often part something out / if you buy the gun / and don't want the rest of it.

I would just shop the used gun shops / pawn shops in your area that specialize in guns .....

A little off-topic; but, strange as it may seem, Mossberg makes some barrels to fit the Remington 870.
For a 18-inch HD barrel, the Remington Country Store wants $134 for part #F242247.
Mossberg's price for their version, #90335, of the 870 HD barrel is $103.

If all else fails, you can check out this web site. http://www.barrelexchange.com/srch_1...&Submit=Search

As per usual, "buyer beware" when buying off the Internet.


Good Luck & Be Safe

Don't set your price expectations too unrealistic. Short, smooth HD type barrels tend to command the highest resale price while the long hunting type "standard" barrels tend to be the cheapest. I think this is simply a reflection of the law of supply and demand. Joe goes into Walmart and buys a standard hunting shotgun and starts to customize it. His "excess" standard barrel has to compete with all the others out there for a buyer.

I've had several good transactions with Corson's Barrels.

If anyone coming across this wants to sell one of those standard long 870 12 gauge 3" Express barrels I am looking for one. While I have been looking two chopped theirs; one after a few two many beers.

That is a false statement, I never said I'd had too many... just enough to lubricate the mind.
