    I am looking for a factory wood forend for a 12 gauge 870 Special Field. I’ve been searching everywhere with zero luck finding anything. Anyone have one laying around they’d be interested in parting with or know of any out there?

    Have you tried Gun Parts, aka Numrich?

    Is it a shorter forend to fit the shorter mag tube?

    Those guns have not been made since the mid 90s and as many 20 gauges were made as 12s which will make your search that much harder.

    It is possible a standard forend could be modified....actually no. The checkering would not match up. And the checkering was actually cut on those as opposed to pressed.

    Good luck. Remington listed the 12 gauge wood until about 2010, but they dropped the metal tube quite a bit before that even.

    Let me dig around. The odds are slim, but not zero, that I have one that I'm not using.

    I have looked but didn’t see anything. Was going to call them but didn’t get a chance today.

    I’d appreciate you looking if you have the chance. I may be on the hunt for this for a while by the looks of it.

    I forgot last night, but I'll set a reminder on my phone to look tonight.

    I’ve spotted them on eBay in the past. Almost bought one by mistake.

    Kinda wish you would have bought it....then maybe I’d have a shot at buying it from you. LOL I’ve been looking on there. I figure that will be my best option but might take some time.

    It would appear that mine has gone AWOL at some point after I swapped out the furniture years ago. Sorry.
