I have a model 190 20 gauge it was my first gun I got when I was 4 years old. I have had the tought of since it is a bolt gun swappin out the barrel to a rifled slug barrel. Does anyone know if I can just buy a mossberg slug barrel to put in it or would it be some kind of goose chase to find one that would thread right? thank you I am a greenhorn and figured it would be a nice project to start because it is special to me.

It can be done, but to my mind it would be prohibitively expensive as the barrel would have to be custom-made, and finding a smith to do the work might also be a problem. Not many know how to work on those guns.

Maybe be getter to cut the barrel to 20"-22", have sights or scope mount installed and shoot fosters.

So I take it I can not use a slug barrel out of another mossberg bolt action slug gun to put in?

If so would it be possible to have it rechambered to 3 inch instead of 2 and 3/4?

If it's a mossberg 190 slug gun, then yes, you should be able to pretty easily swap the barrels. I just don't know if they made a 190 slug gun especially in 20ga.

I meant if you could find a 190 slug barrel. It's pretty unlikely a barrel from another model would fit it. Your best bet is to either shoot regular slugs out of the gun you have now, or sell it and buy a slug gun.

No need in doing that, there is very little difference for 20ga slugs these days between 2 3/4 and 3 inch slugs in on game performane

Another opinion. The mossberg is a nice ole shotgun and can be used with foster slugs out to 75 yards or so. Its approximate value is $100-$150. If you cut it or modify it or spend $100-$150 to modernize it, it is still a $100-$150 shotgun.

You would be better to keep it for your kid when he gets old enough and buy a slug gun. A H & R slug gun is about $250 with a rifled barrel to shoot sabot slugs out to 150 yards or so.

I like the old bolt action shotguns but you are better to leave it be and buy a new slug gun. There, a reason to buy a new gun.

True lol I have no intention of ever selling it I just figured it would be a nice thing to make it a little more useful to me since I don't have a slug gun
