    Im kind of embarrassed to admit this but I am about to purchase my first shotgun. I am very familiar with rifles and handguns just not shotguns. I was looking at getting a 12 ga H&R pardner pump protector with a 18 1/2 barrel. I realize this is mostly a short range/self defense weapon. I was curious if it is possible to just replace the barrel on this with like a 28 inch barrel if I wanted to go dove hunting or something of that nature? Is this something that is safe and possible? I am assuming so but thought I would ask and if anyone knows where I can get a barrel that safely fit this particular shotgun

    I believe those are Remington 870 clones but I am not positive. If so 870 barrels will work. Anybody?

    That or just buy a two barrel combo. That will for sure work.

    Thanks for the welcoming everyone. I have read mixed things about the Barrels from the 870 being interchangable. I have seen some yes and then some yes with modifications. I don't know if maybe small tweaks have been made over the past year that does make them interchangeable with no mods or what. Id really like some more input on this and hopefully find someone that has done this here recently.

    Thanks,
    Travis

    Almost all pump shotguns are designed to accept different barrels. I'm not sure about compatibility but you should be able to get a longer choked barrel from H&R if no where else.

    OP,

    Everyone on "firearms" boards appears or implies expertise in all things firearms, so your humble admIssion as to "newbie" in regard to shotgun is appreciated. With that said, I will not recommend any particular shotgun but will suggest exposure and training in regard to shotgun first before you make a purchase. The only question which is imperative at this.point is whether you intend to hunt/skeet/trap, or is the shotgun for protection in the home primarily.
