Replacement 12g Field Barrels

I have my grandfather's 12g Field w 32" M/F choke barrels. Probable 1914 manufacture. Would like to find a set of shorter barrels with I/M chokes. I used it as a boy, and can say that it was the worst gun for a dove shoot imaginable, and I was the worst shot on the field with it! Fittingly, the only time those long barrels were useful was on a duck hunt, when I managed to bag a wood duck hen as she was flying directly away from me at a pretty nice range. Overall, the gun is in very good condition, so shorter barrels in similar condition could turn this into my regular shooter.
Suggestions as to where to begin my search? Thanks.
