I had purchased a second forend off of eBay for my Remington 870 Wing Master SM and the thing absolutely fit perfectly. I texted some inquiries as to seller as to the actual length because the super mag stock is longer than the regular 870 wing master stocks. So be sure of your lengths when switching out the stock. I had also been looking for stocks at Midway USA and Cheaper Than Dirt, although there are a number of places that you can get them online. Just do your thorough research and you should be fine .

I think the best-looking wood for the 870 is still the factory Police furniture.

Yeah, Remington. Factory walnut 870 furniture is well-made, strong, and guaranteed to fit your gun. It'll also use standard hardware that's easy to find or replace. Wingmaster furniture has the fancy finish & checkering, Police walnut is simple, strong straight-grain. You can buy new from Remington, or look on the used market if you want to save some money (especially if you don't mind a few cosmetic nicks & scratches). If you are buying used though, be aware that not all factory 870 stocks have been made from walnut.
