OK, I found and purchaced A GREAT DEAL for 299.00
a reasonbly good condition 870
I didnt get too into the gun, I am probably going to sell it anyways after putting the factory stocks on it.
I am thinking of putting the surefire parts on my older wingmaster, but the gun seemed to be in good shape over all, and I AM NOT CURRENTLY SELLING ANYTHING..BUT

GUN HAS
surefire fore grip with light and it all works
tac star sidesadddle
choate pistol grip full length stock
factory orginal stocks

I figure the used surefire/choate stocks and saddle are pushing $300 value and I have the orginial stocks to refit the gun.
so I almost got the shotgun for free especially as I have wanted a surefire stock since its inception but always thought they cost too much.....

BUT!

when racking the slide, the forestock seems to drag a bit..
this could be from
the forestock rubbing itself somewhere or
the sidesaddle is too tight or
????any suggestions...
have to wait 8 more days to pick it up and was just looking for input on the tighness of the forestock and BRAGGING A BIT>>>

this is a question for those with knowledge of surefire fore stocks,,
I know a too tight sidesaddle will retard the stroke on the shotgun
I am curious if the forestock could be causing it in anyway,
or,could there be a larger issue in the reciever causeing the tromboning to feel "snug"

I guess there are two things to try. First remove the side saddle and replace with original pin, does it drag now?. Second replace forend and return it to the stock forend, does it drag? Then go ahead and remove the variables.
