I am thinking about purchasing a sidesaddle for my 870 express super mag. When I read information about the one made by Tac-Star it says that you need to modify the forend for an 870. Does anyone know exactly what needs to be done or has anyone done it successfully? Any help would be appreciated.

OK. Let me start by saying that I've never modified the forend of an 870, so I can't tell you exactly how hard it is or how it looks afterward. But I figure that the end result of cutting away on the forend can't look good. Instead, I would suggest that you buy Tac-Star's 4-shot Sidesaddle (which requires no modification of the forend). But if you're set on the 6-shot Sidesaddle, I would buy a shortened forend (sometimes called a "police forend") and just plain replace the original one. These can be found online at:

I have an 870 and a 6 side saddle on it. What they mean is that the 870 factory forend slides over the reciever a couple inches and you would not be able to pull it back all the way. You need to get any tactical forend. They dont slide over the reciever and most are well below $20. I think they make the gun look more tactical too =)
