View Full Version : Opinions on Choate 870 Stocks
I am going to replace the wood furniture on my Wingmaster that I've set up for home defense. After looking at the options on Midway, I'm leaning toward the Choate conventional stock and forearm. I really like the ability to adjust the length of pull and that the forearm doesn't interfere with a sidesaddle. I've also looked at Speedfeed stocks but the reviews aren't as positive.
So, does anyone have experience with this stock set. If so, please let me know your opinion. Photos would be greatly appreciated as well.
I have used Choate for many years. Very good products.
I had a Choate stock with adj pull on a Win 1200. Not a very comfortable stock, IMO, and I went back to wood.
There so many stocks from Rem that are better, including their adjustable with the Supercell pad. I wasted my money on the Choate.
I don't see an adjustable LOP synthetic stock on Remington's website.
I've had Choate stocks on my 870s for many years, IMO they are the best made.
I believe it's on the Remington Country Store site or, if that doesn't have it, do what aippi tells everyone to do - download the complete 870 pdf parts list.
I seem to recall to seeing on their Country Store site.
Found it on the Country Store site. The spacer kit is separate from a stock, but only 11 dollars. I'll consider it. Thanks.
Choate products are well made products. Made in the USA, by Americans, and have a Lifetime Warranty. I have used one of their pistol grip full length stock on my 870 since 1990 or so. I am putting an 1100 together for the wife as a HD gun. It will have the Choate PG stock and forend on it.
I have a Choate forend and pistol grip stock on my 870 which has been great. I especially like the spacers on the stock which can be removed to shorten the length of pull.
Yeah TPR, the spacers are what makes it so attractive to me. I've read reviews of the Choate forend on Midway's site that say it sometimes doesn't fit right, rubbing against the barrel. Did your forend go on well? Does it bind at all?
I've used Choate products for years, and I like them a lot.
The forend that I have was ordered directly from Choate and it fits fine. I ordered the pistol grip stock from Midway and there were no problems with it either.
Not sure what you read that was not a positive review of the Speedfeed stocks. It may have been one opinion and you will find a thousand reviews from users for every nuteral or negative one you find. They are still the best value out there. If you are refering to the I and III with the shell holders then understand they are only two models of many. They are only different from the other models because they have the shell holders. So someone rating them is most likely rating the shell holder feature and not the stock. The IV-S with a Limbsaver pad is about as good as it gets.
Choate products are hard to beat. They are probably the first to make after market stocks for the 870's.
