Re: New hunter with questions
holy smokes, what length barrel do you have on there now?
26 or 28" are my preferred for the 870.
not sure what you mean by cantilever, the barrels have nothing to do with mounting optics as the receiver normally is what is utilized; mossbergs and others have drilled and tapped uppers where others just use a clamp device that also uses the trigger guard pins.
