I'm not sure, but I think the sportsman has a different barrel configuration. They might be compatible, i say about a 1 in 4 chance of it working. I've never looked at a sportsman pumps barrel, but I've noticed how different model 870 barrels arent always compatible.

if the years of the barrel and sportsman are very far apart, you can lessen the chances of compatibility.

i suggest you email the Remington website and try to get a professional opinion from them.

Almost every gun shop worth its salt should have a slug barrel for the remington model 870,if not then they should be able to order one with no problem.



Hi I took and 870 Barrel and had gas ports drilled into barrel and it works.. I'm not sure that Remington would approve but you might check it out with a gunsmith and get his opinion. Again I did it but that doesn't make it right so I recommend you run it by a gunsmith and see if see a problem.. I did with a slug barrel 20 years ago and have not had any problem.


i have a 12 gauge unrifled barrel 500 model.what type of slug do you reccomend for the mossberg


Remington 870 pump loaded with "OO" buckshot or rifled slug


i have a remington 870 wingmaster its my grandpas and it has 3 barrels the slug , the bird shot barrel and the muzzeloader barrel it takes a 209 primer just like the the regular muzzeloader its very interesting



Yes; however, the Remington Coppersolid slug is designed for shotguns with fully rifled barrels. A rifled barrel is not standard on the 1300 Defender but is available as a replacement. The Coppersolid slug can be fired from a 1300 with a standard smooth bore barrel, but long range accuracy will suffer.


Yes you can. Lead Shot is Lead Shot. I shoot all kinds of different sizes of shot out of my Mossberg and Remington Shotguns. What you do not want to do is shot a slug out of barrel made for shot. Get a rifled barrel for that.


No, as long as you use rifled slugs, sabots are for rifled barrels. Some people will say that a slug will harm a full choke barrel, I have shot them out of a full choke Remington model 10 for years with no damage, I don't think I would do it out of a xx-full choke though.


A shotgun barrel with rifling.


yes , i have done this, i couldn't find a 3 inch slug barrel so i put on a 2 3/4 inch one and it worked fine, but Remington said no, guess that's their liability answer.


Firing lead shot through a slug barrel will not damage the barrel. The rifling will distort the shot pattern and you will get less than desireable results.




Remington 12 gauge 3" "OO" Buckshot and Rifled slug


Yes, that is why they rifled the barrel.


Try gunbroker.com in the barrel section.


yes a rifled shotgun barrel or smooth shotgun barrel


The improved barrel should handle slugs with no problem, although it will not be quite as accurate as a slug barrel.



I wouldn't. This could destroy the choke and expand the barrel.


In the most general of terms, slug barrels are rifled and regular barrels are smooth bore. Both are capable of shooting slugs.


any kind will kill a deer but if you have a smooth barrel than u need smooth slugs if you have a rifled barrel you need a rifled slug


Yes: A Remington 870 shotgun with a modified choke will shoot any commercial shotgun slug.
