11-87 barrel

I guess this reply comes a little over 4 years late, but I just saw this and thought I'd chime in.

I have to ask what barrel your shotgun came with? Or what's on it now?

Remington factory aftermarket barrels are readily avilable from places like Cabelas or Bass Pro. My 11-87 came with a factory installed 28 inch barrel, but replaced it with a 26 inch barrel for hunting and that is the barrel I've used on it for the last 17 years on my gun.  To me I find the 26 incher to be less cumbersome while carrying in the field while jump-shooting or flushing, yet still offering great pointability while pass-shooting or shooting over decoys.
