Why are all the barrels so long?

I am looking for a semi auto shotgun with an 18" barrel and adjustable choke. But has a regular vent rib, not a rifle sight.

 

I cant seem to find anything shorter than 21".

 

Is there a reason for this?

Anyone make aftermarket barrel?

 

My purpose is primarily tactical matches but I don't shoot slugs so a straight rib is nice for speed. The adjustable choke would allow for some woods hunting.

 

Anyone got suggestions?

i cant think of any tactical shotguns that have a rib on top for 18" barrels or shorter.

You will have to get a barrel cut down. Buy a 28 inch barrel, have it cut down and threaded for chokes, and use the rest of the barrel for a club. :)
