I have a 28" HK matte black/synthetic that I bought new when they first came out (seems like ~1991). I have bought and sold many shotguns since and this one always ends up in the field with me. So, I decided I wanted to add another field barrel to the mix as the 28" isn't the best for every situation. I have looked fairly thoroughly over the past few weeks for an original SBE (1) field barrel in either 24" or 26" and the ads around the internet are so misleading it is hard to tell whether it is for a I or II. So, a few questions: 1. I know they made a 26" barrel. Did they ever make a 24" field barrel for the original SBE in matte black? 2. Did they ever make a factory slug barrel for the same? 3. Are there ANY of the original barrels still available? If not, does anyone know the part numbers so at least I can search that way and keep an eye out? It sure would be nice to only have one set of chokes to deal with across multiple guns and barrels (I also have several HK/Benelli M3 folders) 4. I had bought a SBEII slug barrel and the required modified forearm (but have only test fitted it thus far). 5. Will the modified forearm required for the SBEII slug barrel to work on a SBE in previous question work also for a SBEII field barrel or are they different also? 6. Lastly, I believe the SBE barrels are chrome lined. Does that mean they can't be cut down to a shorter length or is that an old "wives tale"?
