Magpul MOE forend is little longer than other tactical forend but still can be used with 6-round sidesaddles.

This forend has slots which enable you to install different MOE accessories such as rails, grips, etc.
Installation of the Magpul MOE forend is the same as with any other forend for Remington 870. No special instructions.
