View Full Version : Remington 870 questions

July 28, 2002, 04:07 PM
Do the various accessories on the market: pump forends, folders, etc. fit both the 870 and "youth" models?

Are non-vented rib barrels available for the .20 gauge youth 870?

Where and how much is a straight "special field" stock for youth?

Thanks for your insight gang.

I've never seen a non ribbed bbl for the 20 ga 870 not on a shotgun.

The "Youth" models have interchangeable parts within gauge with the standard models. There was a "Special Field" model 870 (and 1100) some time ago that had a straight gripped stock,there were a few parts that did not swap with others.

Most "Yute" models are 20 gauge, including the 870 YE here I got for the kids. Relatively little aftermarket stuff is made for the 20.

Alla same-same, a stock YE 870 is an excellent HD shotgun, decent upland gun and can be used for deer hunting with slugs. Very versatile, just not lots of extras around.
