870 x 1975 20 Gauge Shorter Barrel Fit?

I have an late 1975 870 in 20 gauge.

Looking for a short barrel.

Confusing details on what fits what. The quarter does go through the ring.

SN on the receiver is a T prefix (confirms year) and an N Suffix so its a heavy duty magnum

Not longer made I gather.

It is a Standard weight meaning made on the 12 gauge size receiver. A lot of people still prefer them for the added weight. Not made for a loooong time now. and both have some, but they ain't cheap.
What could have happened... did.

I do not trust Remington's dating service accuracy. If they were, you could end up with Nancy Pelosi.

What a convoluted history!

And the odd part was it sat someplace until it was bought for me as a gift.

About 4 years out of date, NIB. Odd stuff.
