Rifled mossberg slug barrel for 870?

I wounded a buck at about 80-90 yards with my smoothbore barrel on my 870 express this weekend and it is pushing me over the edge towards splurging for a rifled barrel/scope for my 870. The remington and hastings barrels cost over 200$ and I am a poor college kid so that would be tough to swallow, I saw that mossberg also makes rifled slug barrels for the 870, and saw some going for 130$. Are these worth buying and will they be accurate like the more expensive rifled barrels?

Oldest brother put a Mossy barrel on his 870; says it is as accurate as the higher priced Remmy barrel.

His is the rifled barrel, [about $170] used with the 'sabot' slugs. The $130 Mossy barrel is a cylinder bored barrel, intended for the non-sabot 'rifled' slugs.
