well, i guess the stock is pretty obvious, but what about the fore grip? i want to put on a speed feed set. the buttstock seems simple enough, but i have no idea how to get the foregrip off. any tips would be great.

thanks
matt

IIRC:

Move foregrip halfway back to open the action. Unscrew & remove barrel nut, then pull the barrel assembly from receiver & then unscrew the foregrip nut, then remove the foregrip.
I think that's it.

I think coltshorty almost got it, but there are two levers you have to push to get the pump forend off on the 870. They are on each side of the magazine loading area. Push the plate up, press on these "levers" on each side, and pull the slide forward. (After taking off the foregrip nut and removing barrel)

You'll need a to purchase, borrow, or fabricate a forend wrench to remove the nut that holds the forend on. It is u-shaped and allows you to unscrew the forend nut. Once the forend nut is removed the procedure posted by entropy will get the forend off.

Found a link for you.

I've never used any kinda wrench to get the nut off the foreend, mine just loosens by hand.

1. Use a old belt and channel locks. Wrap the the belt around the nut, then use the chanel locks on top of the belt to lossen the nut. The nut will loosen counter-clock wise.

2. Use a butter knife and work the spring cap off. You will put a little pressure up on the cap and it will walk out of the tub. Work both sides of the slot. Remeber that the cap is holding the spring and will fly across the room if not retained by your hand.

3. Rack the slide half way cocked. The barrel will come off. Move the slide forward, and reach into the bottom of the receiver and push in on the two lever springs(opposing sides). The slide will now move forward of the receiver and will have the bolt still on the slide bars.

4. Using a foream nut tool, you will spin the forarm nut counter-clock wise to remove the forearm from the slide tube. Remember that when you tighen the new forarm on to the slide you center it with the two slide bars or it will rub on the barrel.

To remove my forearm nut I just cut a small piece of steel that fit inside the forearm then clamped it in my bench vice. hold the gun pointed downwards onto the metal piece. Line up the slots and turn away..

Took a bit to figure out but now its easy.

You do not need to remove the metal slide bars from the bolt to change the forend as others have suggested. As stormbringer said you can easily fabricate a simple tool to remove the slotted forearm nut. E-mail me and I will send you a drawing of this tool and some armorer’s instructions.

shooter505, The bolt sits on top of the slide bars and lifts off the bars. The bolt is lifted off to gain room to remove the forearm nut .

Did you mean to say that the "slide bars" do not need to be removed fron the forearm slide tube in order to remove the forearm nut? If so, then that would be really hard due to the tube and slide tube are one piece.
