Hellow Forum Members. I have a question about a mod I would like to do to my shotgun. I have a Remington 870 HD model with a 2 shot extention. After seeing the MCS forend on the forum I wanted to get one. I looked up the part numbers that were listed here and called Remington. They asked me what model I had and I told them, then told them what I wanted and the operator said " That will not work on your shotgun", I was told I would be wasting my money because "it would never work". What I need to know is if this is true, if so is there a way around it or do I just forget it? Please any help or info would be great!

Thank You,

SNAFU1

I'm no expert, but I think we're gonna need a bit more info about exactly what you've got for a shotgun, man. The 2-shot extension doesn't mean anything when you're talking fore ends on an 870. ;)

Do a search on MCS and look for post by 870pilot. There are pictures of his 870with a MCS fore-end here somewhere.
I have a MCS unit laying in my tool box now, but I haven't tried to put it on anything yet.. I will put it on my 870P later today and post a picture

Slight modification on the action bar was needed. I had to grind off one of the tabs so that the slide block/bolt would fit on it correctly.

Graindog, all I can tell you is that my shoty is bone stock from Remington. It is a Home Defense model(HD) 870 uses 2 3/4 or 3 inch shells. What I remember from the call to Remington was that the tube was different or something like that. I got all the part numbers and names from the post by 870pilot. Is there a difference between Reminton Shotguns? I will try to post a picture if that will help, but I dont know what else to say. I just dont want to spend money on parts and then have to send it back. Thank you all for the help and info so far.

Snafu...

Here are the pics for you... funny, i recall reading a thread that one of the members tried to get the MCS and was told that the item was discontinued/for sale to LEO only, so the fact that they are willing to sell the part is good news.

One image shows the difference between the MCS fore-end, one shows the Tri-Rail unit i used to “take up the space” on the mag tube when using the MCS, and the other shows a close-up.

It worked well on my basic 870!

Here are the 'standard' forend and the 'MCS' forend, side by side.

What the fine folks at Remington MIGHT be saying is that the MCS forend (grip/handle) won't work with the 'standard' tube assembly.
Note that the forend tube assembly is much shorter than the 'standard' 870 forend tube assembly.

Here is the part numbers for the MCS forend and tube assembly, and the forend nut:

#301186 870 FORE END 12 GA SP SYN BLACK (MCS) $34.00
#301113 FOREND TUBE ASSY – MCS 12 ga $33.60
#18634 870 FORE END TUBE NUT 12 GA $6.70
All of these parts are visible in the photo of the MCS forend assembly.

These parts DO work on all of my numerous Remington 870 shotguns.

IHTH,

Keith

I just installed the MCS fore-end on my 870P, it fit with no problems. (No pictures, dead batteries). It may not fit some older guns without some modifications. Remington has changed the action arms on the fore-end tube at sometime.
