Aftermarket Forends for Remington 870
Aftermarket forend are popular for the Remington 870, especially the ones that let you have additional equipment. That is why the Magpul MOE Forend is a popular choice for Remington 870 owners. This forend has a simple design made of thick plastic and features special hand stops and grooves which make it very easy to grip. With such a firm grip, you can position your hand comfortable when aiming and firing the weapon.
Another forend with a superb grip is the Hogue Overmolded Forend. Instead of it being plastic, it contains a rubber finish that ensures your hand won’t slip while holding it. The rubber also feels better than plastic which will make it one of the most comfortable forends you can purchase from your shotgun, regardless of whether it is cold or wet in your environment.
However, you may be someone who uses their shotgun in darker environments. In this case, you would want the Surefire Forend because it features an integrated flashlight on the bottom of it. That way you can have a light shining in front of you from the forend so you can see better in the dark. The only downside to this forend is the price because it is considerably higher than other forend prices.
Of course, you may be someone who wants a classier look to your Remington 870. If this is you then consider getting the classic walnut forend with grooves in it. The outer appearance will have a woody look to it, but the grooves will ensure that you can grip it as well as the modern looking forends. On the other hand, if you just want a simple forend that won’t get slippery in wet environments then choose the synthetic forend instead. This forend also has grooves in it like the wooden forend, but the difference is the synthetic forend is waterproof. It is also a bit cheaper than the more tactical forends which allow you to install accessories to them. With so many forends to choose from, you are bound to find one that will be to your liking.
