Anybody know where I can get an 18.5" barrel for my Mossberg 500 in 20 gauge? Mossberg used to have them, but I don't see one on their website now.

Thanks in advance for your help.

eBay has a lot of the longer ones in 20-ga, but not 18.5

Gun Parts Corp has a 20ga barrel with cyl bore 2.3/4" 3.00 in you have to look by manufacture and scan down to find one in stock I look
and they have one for about 148.00 Several years I found a 12 ga bbl at Gander Mountain in Coricana TX that had bee cut down and coated to
hunt Turkeys. I wanted it to shoot buck shot. You might call the plant in texas they are nice people sent me a plug that I had lost.

ET-REt,

I checked and they do, indeed, have the barrel I want. They also have the extended, 8-round magazine, which I also want. The only thing I don't know is if the extended magazine is compatible with the shorter, 18 1/2" barrel. Do you know?

I talked to Mossberg today and they do have the 18 1/2" barrel, but the extended magazine is not compatible with it. In fact, the standard 6-round magazine is the only one compatible with it.

Again, thanks for your help.
