View Full Version : Aftermarket 870 Forends

01-12-2007, 12:16 AM
Hey all, I was looking to replace the forend on my 870 express with either the Choate standard forend or standard one that Wilson Combat offers. Anyone have any firsthand experience and input on any of these to help me decide? This would just be for home defense use and i have small to medium sized hands, so the Choate looks like it would fit me better. Any help would be appreciated.

If you are looking for a shorter foreend then just get out the ole hacksaw and you're in business.

Good luck

I have the Speedfeed short "Law Enforcement" forend which is what Wilson uses. Dont have any problems with it at all. Hogue also has a nice rubberized short forend also but never tried it on the shotgun but I have some hogue handgun grips and the material feels nice and grippy.

the remington police/utility grade corncob is my favorite. you can do the same thing by sawing and sanding smooth as mentioned above if you don't want to preserve your oem sporter forend.
