I'd be interested to see a pump action shotgun that can accept a muzzleloading barrel...
If you want to get an inline muzzleloader that doubles as a shotgun, check out the NEF one. Or, since you already have an 870, maybe just get a separate inline--I love my Knight rifle, but there are cheaper out there. For his birthday, I got my dad a CVA inline that takes 209 primers for around $200 with scope...

Welcome bigben.
link523 is correct about the Mossberg, but I don't get any hits on a muzzle loader bbl for the 870. Any comments I do find are to the negative.

i had one on my Remington 1100. i believe it was made by hastings.the problem (and the reason i dont have the barrel any more) is that if you mount a scope it has to be on the receiver so you have limited that gun to being a muzzleloader. the purpose of the barrel was multi use out of one gun but it doesn’t work out.
i would just look for a decent muzzleloader and keep your 870 for other purposes.
