    Remington 870 Buttstock question

    My Rem 870 express has a synthetic buttstock that measures 13 inches from end of recoil pad to edge where the buttstock attaches to the frame. It is 13.5 inches to the trigger.

    My question is can I buy a buttstock that is shorter than this? I see Speedfeed makes a youth model that says it is 13.5 inches Length of pull. Isn't that what I have? I bought my gun used so have no idea what a previous owner might have done to it.

    What is the normal length of a factory buttstock?

    Regards,
    Major

    you can do several different things. put the ar 15 stock on, get a folding stock, or get a wooden stock and cut it down. the ar stock has several adjustment and to me is the best next to/over the factory wooden stock. i used the factory folding stock for years on the job, but it is hard on the old body when you shoot many rounds. used wooden stocks are cheap and you can cut them down to size.

    Length of pull is measured from where the butt rests on your
    shoulder to the trigger.

    You can also buy a used wood butt stock - cut off an inch or two
    and install a slip-on butt pad.
