Remington® Factory Replacement Model 870 Barrels with 2-7x32 Scope and Rings
I purchased a scoped Remington barrel this past summer for my 20 gauge 870. My purpose was two fold. 1 I wanted greater accuracy than available with a smooth bore and 2 I wanted better sighting. To date I've only used Hornady SST slugs and I'm very pleased with the accuracy the barrel produces with those slugs. The scope however is a different matter. Before buying I tried to learn what the field of view is with the scope that comes with the combo, but without success. While the scope may be ok in open conditions, I hunt in woods and brush. I had the opportunity for several deer, but was unable to locate them in the scope. On the deer I did get, I located it as it walked thru an open area, when I shot I saw it hump up indicating a lung hit. It took a couple of steps and stopped next to a bush. I could see the deer with my eyes, but could not relocate it in the scope. After repeated attempts to locate the deer in the scope it finally (probably 20-30 seconds) dropped over dead from the lung hit. The bottom line is, I like the accuracy of the barrel/slug combo, but will be getting a QUALITY dot type sight before next season. I did buy a BPS Ascent red dot scope and returned it, you can read my experience at that product site.

A express magnum receiver allows you to shoot 2 3/4 and 3 inch shells. The super mag allows up to 3 1/2 inch shells. You can use a regular magnum barrel on a super mag but are limited to the 3 inch shell defined on the barrel. You can't go the opposite though and use a super mag barrel on a mag receiver.
