I have a Browning BPS that I want to put a slug barrel on. For what Browning wants I could just buy a new gun. Ithaca makes one that's 24 inch with a cantilevered scope mount for about $150. Has anyone heard anything about these replacement barrels? Any other ideas? thanks.

Hastings are good BBLS.

Ithica makes a mightty fine slug gun in the Deer Slayer. Didn't know they made aftermarket BBLS.

They must be fairly new because I can't find much about them. They sell them in Cabelas and at Gander Mt and you can see them at Ithacas site but I have yet to find anyone whos tried one.

Well I finally decided to go with the Ithaca slug barrel, and I was pleasantly suprised at the range yesterday. I mounted a 2-7 leupold from eBay and loaded up withFederal 2 3/4 inch 3/4 oz Barnes HP saboted slugs. Took 3 shots to zero then I shot a group of three at 50 yards. The group beasured 3/8" center to center! Thats better than my 30-30. The group opened up to 2" at 100 yards, but I thought that was still quite respectable. Went back to the range today to make sure it wasn't a fluke. It wasn't. I'm glad I saved half my money and went with the Ithaca. Thanks for all the replies.

ithica has a rifled cantalever mount and a rifled sighted bbl for the 870 and so far every one is really happy with them
i just wish they had one in cantilever with a smooth boar.
i like my breneke slugs.
