I just bought a Rem Police 870 with a 20" barrel. I wanted to get a longer barrel to shoot clays.

- Does anyone have suggestions for a good aftermarket barrel

- Or should I just go for another factory Remington barrel?

- Also, I have a C-More Red Dot, so do you know any barrels or good weaver mounts that would accomodate my Red Dot?

Remington barrels are reasonably priced enough that I'd probably get a Remington 28" barrel with Remchoke choke tubes. Whatever you do, make sure you get a barrel with choke tubes.

Mossberg also makes barrels for the Rem 870's you can see them at and scroll to the bottom of the page.

I bought one of thier 18.5" parkerized cylinder bore barrels and have been quite happy with it.

But for the longer barrels, I agree with TTed, stay with the Remington barrels with removable chokes.

Remington makes all of mossbergs barrels (shotguns), so buy the cheapest you can find. Make sure it has interchangeable chokes. Also check the type of finish on the barrel, some have bluing and some have the parkerized finish, both will work ok but if looks are important this could be a problem. Also check the chamber length, as some have 2 3/4" and some 3".

Depending on the clay sport you choose, get a 28" or 30" barrel. The 30" is good for trap and the 28 is a good universal choice for Skeet and Sporting.
