Remington 870/1100/1187 buttstock switch

Can buttstocks for the Remington 870 and 1100/1187 be interchanged?

If not, why not?

When in doubt ..... mumble!

stock interchange.

buttstocks can be interchange between the 870 and the 1100 of the same gauge. if a different gauge i am not sure. the choate tool models can definetly between models. i think they only make 12 ga. type. i am not certain of this.

as for the 1187 i think they should be able to as well. some with experience with all 3 models or knowledge of/from someone who has done this would know more.

the pistol grip only is available for the 870 . this will not fit the 1100 because of a tube or rod that protrudes from the rear of the receiver. its not very long .but is long enough for the grip to not fit.

as far as the forend on either of the 3 models. the 870 will not fit on the 1100 or the 1187. and the 1100 or the 1187 will not fit on the 870. the busttocks only will interchange. i think the 1100 and the 1187 forend will interchange. i have 2 wingmaster 12 ga. 870 with choate pistol grip buttstock. and had a pistol grip buttstock for the 1100 12 ga. it was sold right before the N.J. ban. the 1100 has a ramline brand monte carlo synthetic stock and forend on it

Typically, Remington synthetic stocks are interchangeable within gauge across the product line. Wood stocks are either 870 OR 11-87/1100. Aftermarket stocks should specify the models for which they are intended. Let us know if you have questions.
