i wanted to buy a barrel for my 1187 i wanted a smooth bore with rib vent . i would like a 28 in barrel so i could use it for small game and bird hunting. I just wnated to seeif there was any thing out there.
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.
Accuracy. What an incredible way to give yourself a true advantage.
Go to your club and get a bunch of guys together - and put a target out there at 250 meters. Break out the deer rifles and see who can shoot a decent group, even off of the bench, at this distance. I think you will be shocked at how few can do it.
So - with that in mind, I recently set out to try to develop a semi-custom rifle that I could afford and that would shoot - repeatedly - at MOA.
I started with a platform that I love...
