    Hey, I'm thinking about going the SBS route on my 870, and I'm wondering, am I tied to that barrel that I plan to cut down? Or can I swap out for an 18.5" or more for hunting?

    Also, I know something has to be engraved with a serial number, but where? On the gun? Or is it in the barrel?

    Thanks!

    The receiver should be engraved.

    You can swap to a longer barrel. There is an ATF letter that describes this in the SBR case.

    Thank you very much! So no work needs to be done to the barrel, as far as engravings?
