Improve your shotgun's balance, portability and handling speed with these barrels. The 11-87 and 1100 barrels are not interchangeable. The 11-87 barrels shorter than 26" are not equipped with a pressure-compensating gas system. They function with 2-3/4" magnum or 3" magnum shotshells only. Light contour barrels for the 11-87 Premier have a weight reduction of more than a 1/2 lb. to improve balance, portability and handling without sacrificing strength or durability. Will not fit super magnums.

In order to put the Remington 11-87 Replacement Shotgun Barrels (IK-212138) on your Remington, 11-87, 12 gauge, Premier, Light Contour shotgun you will need a standard 11-87 forearm (available on cabelas.com as stock sets). At this time we do not sell an 11-87 forearm separately from a butt stock that will fit your shotgun to enable you to use a fully rifled slug barrel on your shotgun.

Put the 11-87 special purpose forearm on. I had to do the same thing because I put a Remington cantaleiver mount fully rifled barrel on my light contour. I bought mine from a buddy who has a ffl license and can get that kind of stuff wholesale. That doesnt help you much but your local mom and pap sports shop should be able to order one for you. Im from michigan too and maybe you can check with Jays in Clare. Hope this helped a little for ya.

The Remington® 11-87 Replacement Shotgun Barrels, Item IK-212138, are not interchangeable between gauges. You would not be able to use the 20 gauge barrel on a 12 gauge 11-87.

I'm not a gunsmith, but I highly doubt you can use a 20 ga. barrel on a 12 ga. shotgun receiver. I wouldn't do it.

answer 2
I purchased the rifled slug DSM barrel and the forend wouldn't fit on my lite contour. i took the forend to the drum sander and took off little bit at a time, at the cutout for the barrel only, until it slid into place. the slug barrel functions perfectly now, as does the regular barrel. Just make sure when you put the regular barrel back on you tighten it down. You will get some slight twisting.

I bought the 11-87 rifled slug barrel with cantilever for my LC. I had to slightly modify the fore end with sandpaper to fit. It took 15 minutes to sand ONLY the portion that goes up to the barrel. No other modifications were necessary. I took 2 deer with it in 3 days. They are very accurate. Also, when you switch back to the LC shot barrel, there will be some play in the modified fore end. I just make sure the magazine nut is very tight and i don't notice it in the field. good luck
