Magpul SGA Stock and MOE Forend Set for Remington 870 Review
rythomas0704 has posted good review of the Magpul SGA Stock and MOE Forend Set on Remington 870 Forum:
I recently received my Magpul Furniture set (after almost a month of deciding what furniture I wanted) and I am more than 100% satisfied. I am ecstatic with the product. The fit and the finish is top notch… as is all Magpul stuff.
I got the set in the matte black finish and it matches my Express’ matte black finish almost perfectly. Better than the OEM synthetic furniture.
First install was the MOE Fore end:
Magpul was kind enough to send a fore end wrench along with the product… which is awesome. It is made of the same material as the furniture so it may not last forever (because tools should be metal… not polymer) Easy removal of the original fore end. As for installation of the Magpul one, it went on with no problems whatsoever. It was a little snug but nothing to bad. I did NOT have to pry,file, dremel, sand, lube etc. the fore end to get it on the tube.
It has plenty of room for the addition of rails. I would HIGHLY recommend buying the Magpul MOE rails as they are designed specifically for the MOE line of products. They are also low profile and rounded to keep from ripping your hand apart when firing.
The fore end feels great. A little slick but completely manageable. It makes racking my 870 even more fun… I did not think that was possible. At $30 it is an awesome buy.
Next up is the SGA Stock:
This is one awesome stock!!!! The grip drops a little more than the original but not so much that it is a pistol gripped. The butt comes off of the bottom of the grip and this helps to bring the receiver up a little higher to make sight acquisition easier and more comfortable. The stock comes with 4 spacers to adjust LOP and one heck of a recoil pad. It is roughly 1″ thick and feels great. The stock is solid and gives you the confidence in knowing that even though you have a plastic stock you can still bust some heads with it if needed. It also allows for tons of adjustments. It allows you to add 3 different size cheek rests (sold separately) and gives you three places to attach slings. The grip has a good tack to it and fits MY hands perfect. Others may think otherwise due to the fact that it is a little narrower than the original which could cause large handed shooters to have problems. I have big hands myself and have no problems. The grip is solid and has a good positive grip to it. It makes it very easy to bring the gun to shoulder.
Overall I give the set 9 of 10. (everything can be improved) I highly recommend this product. :)
