Good deal on barrels for Mossberg 500 and Remington 870 shotguns
CDNN Sports currently has two great clearance deals on shotgun barrels, valid only until noon on Friday 11/06. One is a 20" barrel for a Mossberg 500 and/or its clones for just $59.99. The price includes two screw-in chokes - one cylinder and one extra-full. This is a particularly useful barrel, because if you have a selection of chokes you no longer need a full-length barrel - the short one will serve for defense and hunting and clay targets. (With modern powders one no longer needs a long barrel to burn the full charge - it's usually consumed within the first 14"-16".) Yes, I bought one.
(Coincidentally, Midway USA currently has Carlson screw-in choke tubes on sale, so you can stock up on them at bargain prices. I just did - I needed to replace some older chokes with worn threads, and wanted a few spares, so I bought 12ga. and 20ga. sets of IC, Mod and Full chokes for both Remington and Mossberg shotguns, along with a wrench and a choke tube case for each set. It's nice to have everything in one container for each gauge and model of shotgun.)
CDNN also has a 20" barrel for the Remington 870 shotgun, also for $59.99, although this one can't accommodate screw-in chokes. That's a pity, but it'll still do good service as a shorter barrel for home defense, reserving your long barrel for hunting and clay pigeon shooting.
(I don't receive any consideration from either company for mentioning or promoting their wares. I simply like to pass on news of good deals when I find them.)
