Help: Rem 1100 20ga Rifled Barrel?

I cannot find a simple thing out and it bothers me because I can figure simple things out. Ya know? So I'm looking to buy a rifled barrel to shoot Sabot Slugs out of my Remington 1100 in 20ga and I can't find if they've even ever been made! I can find the 1100 12ga rifled barrels so it would make sense that one could find one in 1100. I don't want to shoot Sabot rounds out of a 12ga.

I also have an old bolt action 20ga that I'd like to have threaded for a rifled choke and try shooting Sabot's out of that one but I can't find anyone that say's they can machine the threads into the barrel to work any kind of choke system that would be easiest to install. Can this be done?

Hasting lists a rifled barrel for the light weight model 1100 but not for the standard weight model 1100.

I believe Hastings still makes a rifled barrel for 20g 1100. I have tried the screw in rifled
chokes in 12g 870 & 1100 and found them less accurate than smooth bore. I think all the
Hastings rifled barrels are marked not for use with the solid copper slugs. I have a 1100 LT
with smooth bore slug barrel and it shoots Foster slugs into less than 3" at 100yds/ 5-shot
groups with 3x scope.

I do not believe Remington has ever made a rifled 20 gauge barrel. Hastings is your best bet.
What could have happened... did.

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