    Is the Rem 870 folding stock available as an upgrade for a year-old Rem 870 Express tactical?

    No thanks! I’ll just keep my old 870 12 Gage with a Normal wood stock I bought New in 1959, which is still in Excellent Condition!

      As a newer owner of an 870, I say “Good for You Richard”.
      An older Remington is far better than a new one.
      59, how cool….I wouldn’t change a thing on it either.
      That’s when I was born, a time before pride in craftsmanship, and worker quality output went downhill.
      I wish I had one like you.

        Yeah Russ, just like most everything else made today! Back then, Pride & Craftsmanship were priority! Today, all businesses think about is: $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Same with new cars, A lot of metal has been replaced with plastic! I personally would not buy any gun with a Synthetic Stock either. To me they simply cheapen any Rifle or shotgun. Always keep my shotgun & others in their case also. I was just 19 when I bought my Remington 870 in L.A., Calif. Anyone could buy a gun then with no questions asked as long as you were 18 or older!

        Russ, I bought mine brand new, 870 Wingmaster, 12 ga, ventilated barrel 28″, in 1967. I paid $125.00 for it retail. I still have it and it shoots just fine.

        I also inherited an earlier Model 870, 12 GA, from my older uncle who passed away. It’s in excellent shape.

          I paid $365.00 for my 870 Express blk. sin. 7 +1, back in 2008, the day after Obama became president.
          Having many Remington rifles in my family as a child, I trusted their quality and hastefully bought mine.
          I purchased mainly for Home Defense, but realized it’s versatility for my first firearm purchase.
          My 870 is now fitted with an ATI pistol grip adjustable butt-stock, and a magpul forend.
          I put about a thousand rounds through it, and began to have failure to feed problems.
          After thorough disassembly and inspection, I found one side of my Action Bar had a chip out of the ramp that catches the Shell Stop. EUREKA! – I found the problem and replaced the action bar. It took long to find this problem, and only because I found this detailed video on how the 870 works; https://youtu.be/qWveqBkFV3Q
          But….to no avail…it still FTF occasionally.
          Now, the next step will be to replace the left side Shell Stop…What a hassle.
          If I had to do it all over, I would have purchased an Old Beater 870, while I saved for a KSG 12/30.5 24+1

          Mike, you could use this relatively inexpensive option, to create an ergonomic HD weapon, out of one of the old Remingtons you own, and always retain the ability to change it back to original form.

          Next I’ll haveto replace the shell stop

          Well good for all of you guys that bought and have those old shotguns. It is good you kept them. But don’t think you are the only ones with older shotguns that don’t to add to their collection. Especially a folding gun. Just say you have what you want and be done with it. If you want to brag then brag. But many people like the new models and the old. Lets see, were those older shotguns Magnum? I don’t know because i did not buy one when i was 16 years old. I bought a rifle for my first gun.

    Just now saw this posting. I have an 870 Express kit gun (matte finish, wood furniture, two barrels, wrench, oil) I got from wally world close to 30 years ago. Last few years it’s went “tacticool” with side saddle, tube extension, and last was this factory folding stock kit. I actually like it more than I thought I would. Still have the original stock and swapped internals if I ever want to go back original. Just a good all around shotgun.

    Russ, I have a Remington.270 I bought back in the late 60’s & it sometimes will accidently Fire when I simply Close the bolt after injecting a round in the chamber!. This happened to me in my L.A. Apt. back in ‘1969 after returning from a hunting trip. Scared the H out of my wife. And has happened several other times afterward! I have been afraid to hunt with it ever since! I contacted Remington & they were gonna send me some info about getting thins repaired, but NEVER heard back from them! I don’t believe I’ll buy any more Remington rifles!!!! Thanks for the email. Richard Ochoa (C’da, Idaho))

      Old shotguns, like the Ithaca 37 I have, would fire if you held the trigger down and pumped the action. I’m sure yours isn’t that way though so would be curious to find out what is wrong with it.
