I just put together a Mossberg 500C-- 20 gauge pump turkey gun and was able to get a 22" non ported variable choke vent ribbed barrel from my gun shop to replace the 18" barrel and it has only been a few months back that I did it. There must be plenty of 20 ga. non-ported barrels left somewhere. I got the barrel for $150 which was including shipping to the shop. Used the ATI tactical stock also. My 500-- 12 ga. is ported and you DON'T want to be beside it when it lights off, but it does help with recoil and interestingly enough it reduces noise downrange by redirecting the blast wave. My 30-06 Rem. is fitted with a ported muzzle blast arrester and it does the same. On both if you're over a bench or in a box blind expect the concussion reflection, otherwise in the field I can't tell the difference.
