I have a 500 with a heat shield and I would try it to see if it fits but it's welding on because I got sick of it coming loose. Has anyone ever tried it? Are there any quality heat shields for the 870? When I say quality, I'm excluding anything by ATI.

I have put a couple on a 870. They don't want to stay in place. They tend to slide forward under recoil. The problem is the barrels are tapered. The only way i could them to stay in place was to put the barrel in a lathe and turn a short straight section where the front of the heat clamps on. I also had to cut the top of the handguard down. It was rubbing the bottom of the heat shield.
