Just wondering if anyone knows if the synthetic 870 stock can be cut down by a gunsmith, or is it best to just buy a new, shorter stock.

My vote would be to get one of the shortended Speedfeed Stocks. Here is a direct link to their page. Scroll down to find the shortened models. Hope this helps.

Better to buy one. If you cut your exsisting stock down you have to get a new recoil pad as the pad on your stock now would no longer fit. So considering that it is better just to sell your stock and get another stock that comes with the pad.

I just put a Speedfeed IV-S on mine. Slid 3 paper-punched, 1" bike tube bands on the pistol grip. Like it a lot.

+1 loving the 13 inch pull pistol grip of the SF IV-S on my 870 Tactical. My weapon system may have gotten a little heavier since I revamped it, but is IMO very well balanced with a Surefire forend, Mesa Tactical 4 shell side saddle and side mount single point sling attachment for my Magpul MS2 sling.

This is on my to-do list as well. Would be easy enough to chop it myself, but as JD says, then would need new pad.

I'm just going to get a new 13" LOP. That way I can swap back/forth to compare, and can either sell the one I don't want or use it on another gun.

For an all-around defensive/match gun, the 13" LOP seems to be the program.

not a bad idea but for 40 $ you could just pick up a hogue 13" buttstock

yes, but Id loose my forend matched realtree or whatever the heck it is camo. I dont have a problem with buying a new stock, just want to retain the stock camo, which im sure the Houge cant.

My 870P wears a Remington Youth buttstock and it's the perfect size.

I've read a few modifications to make a 12ga buttstock fit a 20ga. How much modification is required to make something like the Hogue 12" (that's not avail for the 20ga" to make it fit?

A 12 ga buttstock will fit an 'old style' 20 ga receiver, but, the 12 ga buttstock won't fit the 'newer' 20 ga receivers.
The area where the stock meets the receiver is smaller on the 20 ga., compared to the 12 ga.

The Remington 742/7400 series and 760/7600 autoloader and/or pump rifles share the same receiver size as the 20 ga shotguns.

There is a letter prefix/suffix on the serial number that denotes that the 20 ga is an 'old style' receiver. (If the shotgun was made in the last several years, it's going to be the 'newer style'.)
