870 Barrel Question

I've recently started trap shooting which I'm becoming addicted to. I've been using my dad's older Rem 11-48 12ga which is not a fun shooter. I have an 870 Express Magnum 12ga w/a short turkey barrel. If I wanted to get a new barrel for that shotgun, can anyone suggest a good target replacement w/the correct choke ?? I my 870 has the black-blasted finish so I'd need a barrel to match. Any suggestions. My shooting friends are suggesting a 28inch.

Thanks Fred

Automatics are necessary, but revolvers are works of art & design.

If you want to do your best at trap, get an Express 30" VT barrel #24589 and have target sights (front and mid-rib) put on it. Or, get a Wingmaster 30" trap barrel with the target sights already installed; but, being brightly blued, it won't match your Express finish.
