Replacement stock for 870???

Post by hobbes » April 24th, 2017, 7:42 pm

The stock on my old Remington 870 turkey special needs to be replaced. I'd like to replace the stock and forearm. Considering a shureshot stock in camo. I'd like to go with something similar to the thumbhole. Any suggestions?

I've got a Knoxx Spec-Ops recoil reducing stock, but don't want to put it back on. It's just too heavy.

Remington has some of the Sure Shot kits on sale right now in their store. That would be my suggestion, but keep in mind the SS has a much higher comb and must be used with either a red dot or tall open sights.

Hmmmm!!! I hadn't noticed that. I don't really want to go to sights (yet) . My glasses that are great for distance make the double beads blurry. However, this gun is primarily used by my boys who both have good eyesight.

I put a Shur Shot on my 11-87 SPST when they 1st came out & I love it!!!! It seems to make the gun much easier to handle as the weight distribution is transferred to the arm instead of the wrist. It also lessens recoil. My slug gun came with the Shur Shot as well. I highly recommend the Shur Shot.

I put a kicklite stock on my 20ga. I wasn't sure if Id like it or not. I love it. U can easily shoot bare sights with it. Ebay has a couple sure shot stocks for around $70 or syn stock/forearms $40-$50

I went with the ATI pistol grip and adapter for my youth 20 gauge and it's perfect. The fit and finish are ok but the best thing, besides the pistol grip, is that the new stock has corrected the sight alignment by lowering the comb.

the choate is a ok stock.. I have one on my Ithaca 37 12ga. I rather have a shurshot on a 870 than the choate as its comb is way short. I like my cheek on the stock and its just hovering over it and not melded with it.

thumbhole stocks are good I guess.. but in the world of turkey hunting if you ever have a situation where you need to shoot left handed, they don't work so good.

Thanks for the info, but I'm not concerned with shooting left handed. I've never done it. I typically wait for the opportune moment and roll to my knees and swing around to shoot a bird too far on my right side.

If you are shooting beads I would get a original Remington stock and forearm. You can buy them in Camo or black

I have an 870. I too wanted a sure shot and found one while at BPS in Obsession. Yes, I did put some y’all tru- glos on it and have it shooting POA. Have shot at two and killed two- 37 and 18yds. The 18 tells me the most cause patterns will be small and you really need it POA at the shorter ranges. I find the sure shot very comfortable to hold both while waiting and shooting AND it seems to absorb more recoil.
Go early, stay late, keep a low profile, be a student of the woods; listen to what he’s saying, don’t talk too much, and if you’re lucky- you might get a chance....
