Barrel question.

4 posts in this topic

Can I use a 3 inch barrel on a gun that has a 3.5 in reciever? I'm looking for a slug barrel for a winchester SX2 and can only find the 3 inch barrel. Thanks.

If it fits I believe you can. I use a regular 870 barral on my 870 super mag for deer hunting. I asked Rem about it and they said it would work just fine just do not used 3 1/2 inch slugs (don't even know if they make them)

Hope that helps

Thanks, I thought that was how it worked, I know you can't go the other way, 3.5" to 3", but I wasn't sure.

You should check with the manufacturer they can tell you what it will fit and won't. Just because it worked on an 870, that doesn't mean it will work on an SX2...

      For the summer trip, there are many nice resorts to choose from.   Depends on what you are looking for.   If you want walleye, choose something on the Tower end.  If more Bass, Musky, or Northern then either end of the lake.       There is a fair amount of variation in amenities and price among the various resorts, with many to choose from.

      Would love to get together, but still in recovery from shoulder surgery. I will be attending the Ruffed Grouse Society Birds and Brews gathering and the Pheasants Forever Greet and Meet in Cambridge at the Pizza  Pub and Sidelines respectively in February. RGS on the 2nd at 5:30 and PF on the 20th at 5:30. No cost - just fun.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.

      Keep on preaching BA.   Just got back from a resort on the river, 3 days fishing. 22 feet of water, they sad they were catching fish. Shacks obviously haven't been moved so far. Obvious tell tale signs.   2 out of 3 afternoons never marked one fish. The other was just a couple. Morning bite 8-8:07   They ran with the pedestrian anglers/corporate drinking groups  'good fishing' reports with their bucket of 1 limit of 10" saugers.   Signed, Disappointed Schnook from Chicago
