if you would, keep us updated on what you think of the stock after a few hundred rounds. I was considering this stock, and I read one review of it somewhere, Brownell's maybe I am not entirely sure, where they said that the stock started twisting or loosening up at the attachment point. does this even look possible to you?

hmm interesting, i have read ALOT of reviews and never saw that but the Internets big lol. Give me 30 minutes ill pull it off and compare with my original stock and snap pics.
also got bored and put on the forend. feels amazing and looks super plain (which is probably good if the guns ever presented in front of a jury).

Ok well tapping the base thats screwed up against the receiver i noticed the plastic on the factory stock seemed thicker, based off of sound.
Remmy stock on RIGHT,hogue on the LEFT


Next thing i did was take a flat screwdriver and "dig" into the material with equal (i hope -_-) pressure. The hogue material is softer for sure.


well as my time and money allow i will start shooting the hell out of this gun using #4 buck and target loads and let you know how it holds up.

just found this post on shotgun world

"To allow for the overmolding (fancy word for squishy grip) both the forend and butt stock are void of material found in other types of stock (i.e. Butt stock is hollow except for the grip area and the forend has a lot less material in it than competitors).The good part is I like the feel of the Hogue stock as does my son. However, the finish of the forend leaves a lot to be desired. There is not a lot of material at the rear where the rails index. Consequently, as you tighten the forend nut it causes the rails to rotate. This results in a forend that rubs against the barrel. You can pre-twist the forend before tightening the nut so that it tightens in the right position. However, since it is metal on plastic (can you say bearing surface) the action of pumping the shotgun begins to loosen the nut. Using Loctite to secure the nut doesn't prevent the rail from turning within the forend. At its tightest the forend still rotates."

ahh, let me revise. I found the review, it was at MidwayUSA. And the complaint wasn't the stock, it was the forend. the review states this:

"I noticed the original 870 forend had a slot that centers, and keeps the forend center. The Hogue did not, so after 100 rounds it canted on me. Also there is a set of ribs inside the forend that holds the forend tube. After the same hundred rounds of birdshot, three of those ribs broke. After seeing that, I returned it."

sorry I had you break down the stock, I should have found the review before I spouted off about it. But what do you think about what it says?

its no problem, i have been helped alot on these boards so i dont mind returning the favor.
Now, when i slid the forend on to the gun i go some rubbage. i wiggled it a bit then it was fin. i could ses it being an issue down the road though honestly. And if it is then no big deal ill put the factory one back on. I only got the forend because it was simply in the box, and as stated in my OP i didnt plan on using it. just boredom lol. Hopefully ill be putting some loads down range tomorrow and will post back afterward.

I have the short hogue stock your using I love it. I use it with a speedfast forend which I think is great. Works well with extended side saddle.

yeah I am looking forward to that 12" LOP. my short little arms just can't get on the forend comfortably with the factory setup. And if it works out for me, that would save me from spending about $180 for a Mesa Tactical LEO setup.
