After reading many reviews, I purchased this to use on my 870 slug gun. Must say I'm impressed. Fit is very good, and the increased height of the comb allows a straight line view through a Bushnell red dot scope. The reverse angle on the comb and supercell butt pad reduces pain on the old shoulder and cheek when shooting heavier slug loads.
Couple of tips: Read and follow the instructions! The forearm nut can be removed easily with a good pair of needlenose pliers. When installing the new forearm, be careful to center it as instructed. If your existing stock is wood, remove the bearing plate that is used between the butt stock and receiver. It's not used with a synthetic stock.
These should eliminate many issues I read about in reviews. I spent a grand total of about twenty minutes changing stocks, and love the Shurshot!

The problem was with my wooden fore end was a little stubborn to get a loose after that if you tighten the new one fully the pump action doesnt want to work had to loosen it back up a bit but i love the feel once i got it back together and it looks great stock is not quite flush but still works great

Remington ShurShot Camo Stocks
The only issue that I had with these stocks was getting the front stock off. Without the special forend stock removal tool I didn't want to attempt to remove the stock thinking that I may damage the part. I purchased the tool else where and and was able to remove the front stock and in a matter of just minutes I had the shotgun reassembled and was ready for hunting. I'm impressed with the looks and how the gun functions. The kick of the 870 with turkey loads doesn't seem to be nearly as severe as with basic black stock from the factory. Also I love the looks of the stock and the thumb hole design. Very pleased and would suggest the stock to anyone interested. I'm impressed.

I live in Athens, Ga and a local firearms and hunting dealer called Franklin's has a few (I assume pre-owned) Remington 870 Express models (at least 8 on the floor) with the ShurShot Stock installed on them and the saleman assured me that they did fit the 870 and judging by the "floor models" they had I was not going to challenge him. Just trying one of the floor models made me WANT to have this on my 870.
I believe also that Bass Pro's Hunting Master catalog lists it as fitting to the 870.
