Info request for someone with factory tapped receiver

Post by safetyfast » Wed Aug 02, 2017 8:21 pm

I'm planning to drill and tap my receiver for a picatinny rail. I would appreciate someone measuring the distance from the front of the receiver to the first hole on a factory drilled 870. Thanks.

That's helpful but doesn't provide any measurements.

Do you already have the rail you're looking to install?

I can take measurements in the A.M. if you still need them.

From the front of the receiver you're looking at roughly 16.5mm to center.
