View Full Version : Rem 870 18" OAL?

November 14, 2001, 09:58 PM
Anyone with a Remington 870 18" barrel - can you tell me the overall length of the shotgun? I have one on order from Vang Comp and am looking to pick up the smallest case for airline travel. Thanks.

My HD 870 has the barrel cut at 20 1/2" with an OAL of 41 1/2".
Home chopped, but the stock is stock.:)

Hope that helps.

exactly 38 1/2".

For airline travel, you probably want to remove the barrel. That'll get your 870 into a very nice, small box.

Many thanks all!

-just be aware, the length of the barrel depends on many factors. For example, a Vang comp barrel with a rib is usually slightly longer than one w/o a rib.

I would get that info from Hans or wait till you get the barrel if it is critical.
