BlueJays, sorry this took so long - hope you see this post. You can get a "Speed Feed" stock for that 870 here:

Others, what choke should I use on my Benelli M1 for firing slugs (or should I say what choke should I NOT use?)?

CMOS, if a rifled tube is made for that, try that first. Otherwise,USUALLY an open choke works best for slugs,tho I recall an old 16 ga 97 Winchester that had a full choke and a long string of successes.

What may be more crucial to accuracy is slug selection,and that requires benching. Buy a messa those 5 round packs of divers brands, swallow a dose of your anti-inflammatory of choice,and fire some groups at say, 25 yards.
Test the best of those at 50, then buy a bunch of those,with matching lot number. This'll hurt some but it's worth it.
