looking for a shorter barrel for my 870 it has the standard long vent rib barrel.
I would like an 18 or 18 1/2 barrel with a bead sight but everything i find has a blue or matte blue finish not the express finish.
I was looking to setup a home defense gun.
Can anybody help?

You ready....Gander Mountain! They have them in stock but not online (at least here). After having some online back-orders, and not being able to find one, I bought it from them.

ETA: The "blue" barrels tend to be the mossberg/remington barrels. GM has the factory Remington barrels NIB.
ETA2: They can also do in store transfers, so if they don't have them at your location they can order it from a MI store.

the matte barrel (express finish) says it has no detent. does it need this detent to fit on my 870 express?

Does your current 870 mag cap click on a barrel detent now - or use the plastic piece in the end of the mag tube with its teeth that engage the mag cap?

The “detent” helps keep the magazine cap tight but there are other ways to accomplish the task

My buddy got his at Cabelas $110 plus tax 18.5" cylinder bore, bead sight, express finish with the ball detent.

It screws on with teeth on the mag cap

Then you really don't need the detent
