      I don't believe an older Rem 870 with a choked barrel can be modified to handle the screw-in chokes. Machining and threading the barrel doesn't leave enough meat to safely support those handy chokes. Correct me if I'm wrong, any gunsmith out there.

          To Cody: Talked to my "smith" and he said could be done,but NOT CHEAP !
          He'd need a new barrel, with "factory" threads, cheaper in the long run.

            Don't know how much money you have to spend, but one avenue might be a place like Hastings Barrels. (http://hastingsbarrels.com/12para.html) I have never used their stuff, but I have seen ads for them all over, also places like Cabela's sell replacement barrels.

              Thanks Big O regarding the threaded chokes,.. now we know. I think I would check out Mossbergs replacement barrels for the Rem 870...they are usually cheaper.

                  I'm boycotting Dick's as well as Field & Stream stores because of their recent stance concerning AR's

                    Perhaps not. Then it would be a case of replacing the barrel.

                        That's what I thought.
