A few years back a got a deal on a blued Remington 870 with a factory folding stock and wood forearm. I put it in the back of the safe and forgot about it until now. I'm thinking about using it for my first SBS. I'm wanting to keep it "old school", the question I have is how short should I go on the barrel?

14" factory barrels are easy to find.  Your first concern is getting the paperwork done and waiting for your stamp.  After that you're free to play around.  You have a few months to think about your options.

Yeah - I understand the paperwork - I got several SBR's, surpressors and a SMG. The reason I'm asking about barrel length now is in order to complete the form 1, I need to enter a barrel length into box 4e. I see most barrels are 14" with a 1 shot mag extension. If I wanted to go bare basic could I get 13" (or even 12.5")? I will be cutting the Remington factory barrel once I get the stamp back.

It's been a while since I measured what length is flush with the factory magazine cap but I believe it is about 12 3/4 inches.
