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

Froggy.

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...

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
