870 Competition Forend Replacement - HELP

Post by cjss378 » Sat Feb 08, 2020 3:33 am

Hello - I am new to the forum and looking for some help on possible resources for a replacement forend for an 870 Competition model. This week the forend literally snapped in half vertically - about mid way - just slightly forward of where the nut holds the forend to the slide assembly. The wood on this shotgun is some of the nicest wood I have ever seen on a factory Remington. Im heartbroken for sure... Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do for a replacement? I dont believe the standard 870 forend and the competition forend are interchangeable. The comp model forend is longer and it mounts to the slide assembly differently. I have not reached out to Remington yet but BOYD and ATI do not offer an 870 comp forend according to their CS reps. Any help or suggestions are much appreciated. Thank you!

Ugh you are looking for a needle in a haystack. eBay, gunbroker and the like. Its going to be an ongoing search I’m afraid.

Are you looking for the long fore end and extents back to the receiver?

Also try GunBroker.com. They get auctions/sales of lots of parts for these shotguns.

That won’t work. He needs a one off forend. Imagine a pump action single shot 1100.
