Hi everyone-

I recently bought a Rem 887 tactical shotgun. It was such a good price, I couldn't pass it up. It's currently outfitted with the standard 18 inch barrel. I was hoping to buy a longer barrel for it, so that I could use it to do some bird hunting and clay shooting. That way, I've got the shorty barrel for defensive purposes, and a longer barrel to use for other things.

Can't seem to find any longer barrels for the 887 that are not rifled for deer slugs.

Anyone ever done this?? I may be crazy, but I'd like to have the options.

Not sure where to tell you to look for barrels for the 887.
You know you can still shoot buckshot out of a rifled barrel & it will not hurt the barrel. On the other hand shooting buckshot through it will not be nearly as accurate as it would be through a smooth barrel.
Good luck man!

it just seems weird that remington doesn't sell a smooth barrel for it.

i'll just call the company and see what they say. i just can't imagine that i'd be the only one that would want to do this.

I am positive they carry the barrel for goose hunting. I was going to order one off their website but then got a great deal on a semi-auto 12 gauge goose gun so now I'm going to get the slug barrel.

Stand for something or fall for anything and if folks laugh at your patriotic talk then your on the right road cause they are ignorant!

F306881 - Part # for the 26" black barrel. $245

F306880 - Part # for the 28" black barrel. $245

You may also have to get the regular magazine spring, end cap, and plug (depending on local/state laws).

It really is a shame that there isn't any aftermarket support for the 887.
