Since Remington started making 870's in 1951, I think, then your barrel would have been made in either 1984 or 2007, assuming my research is correct.

I've got two Wingmasters and changing a barrel is as simple as can be. I have never even held an 870 Express, but from what I can learn on-line, the fit should be the same, the barrel differences are in the finishes.

Since you already own it, remove the barrel off your shotgun and do the reverse with the new one.
