I'm looking to buy a rifled barrel for my 870express to turn it into my Deer Gun.

Gander Mountain has them:

but..
I was looking to do the same thing a year ago but after I had seen the new barrel was $229 I said heck with that. So I went and got an H&R ultra slug hunter for $290. That way my H&R is my deer gun and only my deer gun. This way I don't have to screw around with shooting birds in September and then rush to get my 870 resighted for deer season. I know the H&R is only a single shot, but I have only one time heard of someone getting more then one shot at the same deer. So one shot is all you need. This is just my opinion on what to do. Besides if I get to buy one more gun it is always a huge plus in my book.

My cousin uses a H&R single shot for deer. Good accurate gun. I did exactly what you were talking about with my 870 express 20 ga. I was able to find a Remington rifled slug barrel for 125 that had been returned w/o ever being used. that is my deer gun. It shoots accurate at 75yds with open sights.

Take a look at the mossberg cantilever barrel for your 870. Great barrel for a great price.
