I have a Remington 870 Express Magnum shotgun. I am trying to convert it to a tatical combat shotgun. I tried to mount a Mako AGRF870-FK collapsable butt stock that was supposed to fit the 870 on it. It dosent fit. The rear of the receiver and trigger well does not recess into the pistol grip/mount of the shotgun. This puts a bind on the screw-in plug that mounts the rear portion of the stock to the pistol grip. Does anyone know of a pistol grip, telescoping/folding, tactical type butt stock that will fit the Remington 870 Express Magnum? Obviously, the ones designed for the regular 870 dont work.

Thanks, Steve

If you have your head set on an adjustable stock, Mesa Tactical or Knoxx/Blackhawk with recoil reduction.

If you want a great traditional Tac stock, look no further than a Hogue 12" LOP.

SMR, before you buy something else, you might want to post photos of what's going on.

ANY stock designed for an 870 will fit an 870 Express.

Thanks for the response. I thought the same thing, anything that fits an 870 would fit a 870 Express. That Mako didnt though. Several people are recommending the Knoxx recoil reducing stocks. I believe that's the direction I will go in. I appreciate the help.

Steve,

Remington has been using the same dimensions for that receiver and trigger group since 1949 (even before the 870 was introduced, with the 11-48). The stock interface is no different between the Wingmaster, Police, Tactical/HD and Express models of the 870. Either you got a mislabeled stock, the stock has some flash or mold mark that would prevent it from being installed easily on any model of 870, or the stock is for a different gauge (like you're trying to put a 12G stock on a light 20).

In any event, there is absolutely no practical difference besides receiver and trigger group finish/material that is different between the models of 870 listed. If you posted a photo, we might be able to tell you why the stock isn't fitting.

That's what I've bewen hearing everywhere I've inquired. I probably got one that was just off in the manufacturing process. My luck. I would post a photo, but I already returned the stock to the people I bought it from. I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with one of the Knoxx recoil reducing stocks. I keep hearing good things about them and, after reading comments like yours, I'm more confident in the fact that I just got unlucky with the first one. Thanks for the feedback. This is a great forum and people genuinely seem to know what they're talking about.

Apologies, I didn't see when the topic was originally posted. :oops:

I figured we might be able to spare you from having to return the stock.

No need to apologize, I appreciate the help and advice. I'm a rifle guy, I'm not that experienced with shotguns.

Hello, first post here, I had the exact same problem with the Mako folding stock when attempting to install it on a Marine Magnum. The recess for the rear of the trigger guard is not even close to being deep enough. It's a clean mold, no burrs or anything, and the recess about 1/4" too shallow. Mako makes a sling adapter spacer that should help, but I opted for a Knoxx recoil reduction stock instead, and sent the Mako back to the vendor.

If that's the case, then the stock won't fit on any 870 whatsoever.

check out the mesa or knoxx as advised. i prefer a standard stock but have had both clavicles broken twice. i bought the mesa LEO recoil reducing tactical telescopic stock after much consideration. i could not afford new but found someone selling a like new 870P who was willing to part out the mesa stock he had just purchased.... good luck.

Thanks, Brady. I appreciate the advice. I am going with the Knoxx recoil reducing stock.
