I prefer solid stocks, preferably made from quality wood.
But if you really want to change the stock, I would recommend a quality stock made by manufacturers such as knoxx, speedfeed, etc. I believe knoxx has a folding stock.
Try to stay away from ATI products, they're not known for producing indestructible products.
My friends have had good luck with the Mako forends. They come with 3 rails and from what I have seen (about 500 bird shots) they seem to be rather durable.
No laser sights, in fact, I wouldn't even recommend fiber optic or tritium sights. Just point and shoot. If you can hit a clay 25+ yards away, you can definitely hit a man sized target within 10 yards, or however big your property is.
No slings either, especially one with shell holders.
If you really want extra shells on the shotgun, buy shell holders that attach to the stock, or if you can, find a quality one (Vang comp, etc.) that attaches to the receiver. NO ATI. My friend's ATI shell holder snapped after about 100 shots.
As for extensions, Remington, Choate, Tacstar, Wilson Combat, Vang Comp, etc.
I would not recommend anything more than +2.
Hope that helps. And have fun with your new toy .
