    870 youth stock swap???

    I handled a 870 youth in 20 Gauge at Wally last night. I cannot see that Remington makes a Youth in 12 gauge. I love the feel and movability of the Youth model. Overall I am a novce about shotguns, and can learn relatively easy but dont study them as I do handguns. My question is this. Can I buy a Youth Stock and swap it to a "big boy" 870 in 12 gauge? This would be a great HD gun IMO...I dont want an M4 style adjustable stck so please no suggestions of that.

    I don't think Remington makes a youth stock for a 12, and one for a 20 will not work as the recievers are thinner. But, I do think there are a few aftermarket companies out there that make a short stock for the 12's. Try Choate, Hogue or even Butler Creek.

    Houge makes a great 12" LOP in their OverMolded™ Shotgun Stock series.

    I knew some of my more shotgun literate friends here on DC would help me out. Thanks . I like that LOP, for Hogue.

    On my Mav88 I just chopped the stock by the thickness of the factory butt pad and then reinstalled it. It was synthetic so no wood to worry about ruining. It lets me rack the slide now without feeling like im gonna "lose" it or dismount it. Cheap and easy. Looks just fine too.

    Remington makes a 12 gauge LE Reduced LOP 13" stock with the LimbSaver R3 pad on it for about $75.00. The even shorter 12" LOP from Hogue is very good too. Another option is from Blackhaw Industries with their adjustable Knoxx Special Ops stock that reduces recoil around 95%. 870 price is about $125 and Mossberg units go for about $90.
    Aim for the Thoracic Triangle Area between the armpits and the base of throat.

    1. Shot Placement: Center Mass Between the Armpits & Base of Throat
    2. Heavy for Caliber Bullet Weight / Construction
