Well, I've always thought the Magpul 870 stocks were ugly (the forends look good IMO...) but the flat dark earth version is a little more aesthetically pleasing than the rest; at least to me. Here's a run down of the pros and cons for the stock and forend:

Stock

Pros:

-12.5''-14.5'' adjustable LOP
-Very easy to install
-I find the grip angle very ergonomic
-The fit with the receiver is great
-The grip area allows for better retention in the event of a gun grab attempt
-Adjustable cheek risers for use with optics availible
-A couple different options to attach slings
-Standard 870 recoil pads can be used with the stock (requires an additional Magpul adaptor)

Cons:

-Cost (anywhere from $85-100)
-It's ugly looking
-Only available for Remington 870s at the moment; Magpul says the Mossberg versions are in the works

Forend

Pros:

-Cost (between $25-35 most places)
-Ease of installation
-Modularity (slots accept standard Magpul rails and accessories)
-Very solid fit; no wobble like some forends
-The built in handstop really helps you get a positive grip to run the gun hard even with sweaty hands
-Looks good

Cons:

-Creates wear marks on the barrel/mag tube (doesn't bother me but it may bother some)

Here's a video of me shooting my 870P with the SGA furniture and discussing some of the pros and cons of the setup:

Thanks for posting this.

Not my personal choice, but many of us can benefit from the short LOP and ergos.

BTW, nice ride, too....

While I am not looking for a shotgun stock at the moment that magpul stock looks interesting.

I have tried pistol gripped stocks on the 870 and not liked them as much as a regular stock. May have to give it a try or find a gun with one on it to try out.

The ease of LOP adjustment is long overdue.

Thanks---it's a "tactical" Mustang GT :D (since everything's tactical nowadays!)

Me too. I had the Blackhawk stocks before this but have since sold them all off and replaced them with the Magpul stock.
