I got a Speedfeed II synthetic stock set for my Rem. 870. I like it a lot. Unfortunately, they shipped it with the wrong recoil pad. Never mind, I was going to replace it with a better aftermarket one anyway.
Which ones fit? I'd prefer a prefit one, but I could go with a grind to fit. Only problem is that the gunshop that I got the stock set at measured up a Limbsaver small grind to fit, and it doesn't seem to be able to be ground small enough...

Speedfeed makes a Youth Stock, which is 1" shorter than standard. Would that length allow what you want? Either a standard length or Youth Stock can be shortened by a good gunsmith who knows what he's doing.

You should be able to find a made to fit. Limbsaver made one for my Knoxx stock. You can ask here (http://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewforum.php?f=7&sid=1876b1aeb7c1ba06b99ddba07b2dcff5)
They may have the answer.

The SpeedFeed II is my favorite stock for a 'working' 870, bar none. I've had all of mine shortened an extra inch or so and fitted with grind-to-fit aftermarket pads (KickEez in my case), so I don't know if an 870 factory-fit Remington R3 or the like will mount without fitting on the standard LOP stock. But I'd give it a try and see...

Lee, quick question.
I assume the shortening process eliminated the threaded inserts for the machine screws of the original pad and the KickEez was then mounted with wood type screws.
Check or hold?

Some of the Remington's come with speedfeed stocks and the R3 (Limbsaver) pad.
I've looked but can't find the product # for this pad but it obviously exists...

Wood screws (with Phillips heads, that came with the pads) were what wound up being used.
Sorry for the delay in answering, just getting back to this thread. I bought a bunch of Speedfeed II stocks from one of the big parts houses (Numrich I think) several years ago for a few bucks apiece, and they didn't have threaded inserts in place. They'd never had a pad put on either, but the family wizard fixed them up with KickEez grind-to-fit pads.
