Winchester 1300 Barrel

Kind of weird that my first post on here is about something other than my XD. I guess that speaks for the gun.

Anyways, I have a 12 ga. Winchester 1300 that I bought back in High School, the end of the barrel split about 2 years ago. I took the barrel off and cleaned the rest of the 1300 and put it in the gun safe. I pulled it out the other day, now I am wanting to get another barrel and actually use this again when the snow is gone.

My question, what barrel length do you guys prefer for just going out and having some fun shooting? I have a Rem. 870 that I do most of my bird hunting with. So I am free to turn this into something different.
I am torn between the 22"-28" vent-rib barrel, maybe a slug barrel, not really sure.

What do you guys like using/enjoy shooting with the most?

You'll want to put an original barrel, used if you can find it, back on the gun. I believe my old 1300 had a 28" barrel if i remember correctly. It may cost you what the gun is worth to put on a new one, if they make it.

That is what I have run into so far, when it first happened I looked at getting a new barrel for it...but the price was pretty much right on with a new shotgun. That's when I got the 870.

I guess you could say I'm looking to do this out of nostalgia...I miss my winchester...

The 1300 is what I believe is called the "Defender" back in the day. I got mine around the same time. I took off the wood stock and put two pistol grips on it and a side sadle. It was the "under the bed gun" for a long time until kids came along. Back when I was in college, a long, long time ago, I was living in a HUD apartment complex. I was relocating from a bigger apartment I didn't need to a smaller one. I was "concealing" my weapons as I moved them around. I recall placing it in a laundry hamper as I was dragging it to the next apartment through the parking lot. A sedan of gang bangers was driving by windows down, bandaned out giving me the stink eye rolling slow. I put my hand on the pistol grip they couldn't see and started laughing at them. I knew the first one that reached and I would take them all out rather nicely at the range I was way with 00 buck. They thought I was too crazy to mess with and rolled on. Needless to say it is a sweet weapon. Get an original barrel and rock on. The only other Winchester version of it I like better is the Mariner because it was SS.

I can honestly say, living in rural Maine has produced hardly any of the above scenarios. ahaha. Kind of glad too. The only thing my Winchester saw were clay pigeons, plenty of birds, and the occasional squirrel.

As far as I know, when I bought the 1300 originaly it was the same as the "Defender model"...except Defender had the 8-shot capacity, shorter barrel, and vent-less barrel.

I am leaning towards a shorter vent-rib barrel I think. Since the 870 has a 28" one. Might as well get some variety.

Any others to chime in on this one?

If your 1300 is a standard (i.e. not a Defender) just be sure you don't buy a defender barrel... it won't fit because the lower shell tube is longer.

Does anyone know of somewhere I can still find a 1300 barrel? They are still listed on some of the online stores, but when I reach them to confirm if they are in stock or not they are all sold-out. I know they stopped making the 1300, I'm just hopeing someone might still have some kicking around.

I already looked at e-gun parts...no luck there. They are sold out of everything that will fit mine.
Any others?
