The Remington 870 shotguns are good for competitive shooting, home defense and hunting purposes. However, you might not like the factory stock which comes with each shotgun model. Depending on the size of your body, you might not like the length of pull on the factory stock. Instead, you will need a stock that lets you adjust the length of pull and allows you to shoot more comfortably and accurately. If you have standard stock then you can get Remington Length of Pull Spacer Kit to make it longer but not shorter.
