I have done a search and this thread came up.
My question is not much different than the OP but I still do not see an answer.
My Rem. 870 says EXPRESS MAGNUM on the receiver so I am sure it will handle 3" shells.
But there is nothing on the barrel that tells me what the barrel will safely chamber and shoot.
Since 870 barrels are easier to change than socks, I don't know what I have. I bought the gun used so the barrel may not be it's original.
And, please, don't tell me it "should" take 3". That would be an unsafe assumption in my opinion.
I wish to know fer certain, fer sure for safety, and practical, reasons. Thanks.
