Check Gander but I swear I saw one at the forest lake store tonight with a cantilever barrel and a scope for mid $200's, it was for 2-3/4 or 3" slugs. I don't think I have ever seen a 3-1/2" slug nor would I want to shoot one.

Id be willing to bet that youd prolly rip your shoulder apart or at least feel like you did whistle

Just my two cents, if ya dont want an honest answer then dont ask.

why not a 3.5" chamber?!! 1. if you like your shoulder.... you'll go with no larger than a 3"!! i got rid of my 12 ga. slug gun just cause the beating it gives!!LOL!! for one the 2 3/4" slug is plenty sufficient enough for deer! the 3" adds a bit more knock down power.. but why even go that big? if you've never shot a 3" slug, trust me... i dont care if it takes 1 shot! the target practice shoulder beating and not to mention the scope jarring effects!! you'll think twice! besides you'll get more range from a 2 3/4" slug at 100 yds!!

I wouldn't think there would be a difference between the express, wingmaster, magnum or super magnum when looking for differnt barrels. It's the chamber that is different on the guns.

Phooj,

I shoot a 870 super mag with a 3.5 chamber. I also spoke with a gunmith about a slug barrel for it and he stated any of the 870 barrels with fit another 870. I just put my other slug barrel on my 870 super mag. It work fine. As far as shooting 3" slugs. #1 as stated your shoulder will take a killing. #2 You loose accuracy if it is only a smooth bore. All you have to do is paper test it. I have not shot sabots in 3" as I do not see the need to beat myself up but on the 3" foster slug there is to much (if there is such a thing) power and the slug tumbles.

So u shoud be able to find a slug barrel in matted finish and put it on and go. (I do not think they even make 3.5" slugs for 12 guage)

Just for kicks I just took my 2 3/4" lead shot barrel off my 37 y.o. wingmaster and swapped with the 3 1/2" Super Mag barrel --- no problem! Even swapped the retaining caps and everything cycles perfectly. Just wish that Super Mag cycled as smooth as that old Wingmaster---- maybe three + more decades from now. 3 1/2" Kent Fasteel kills my shoulder and my brain almost as bad as my 10 guage did so I can't even imagine what a slug would feel like outta that thang! No Thanks man and good luck deer hunting!

Tomorrow is just your future yesterday.
