I need a trigger plate assembly for my 20 ga first year production 870. I can find 12 ga trigger assemblies easily. Will a 12 ga trigger fit a 20 ga 870?

Thanks!

I don't believe so. If you look on websites selling trigger plates for the 12 & 20's are listed separately with different part numbers.

Virginian will know, but he will probably want to know the complete serial number of the gun.

I think on the earlier series 20’s it will work. The smaller frame came later.

I would think a 12 gauge trigger assembly would work in the older standard weight 20 gauges that are built on a 12 gauge receiver. I do not know that for sure. I have never tried swapping them out.
