I was disappointed with this product. The screw holes were not milled all the way through. It appears to me to almost be made of cheap plastic instead of polymer. I followed the manufacturer video that was fast and somewhat misleading when it came to instructions mostly with the screws you were to start by hand. The other issue I have is that for some reason my 870 safety keeps engaging not allowing me to fire the shotgun from time to time. I would not recommend this product, it does not seem reliable and the quality is not what I was hoping for.

Fantastic Piece of equipment. Fit and finish was appropriate, especially for the price-point. Instructions were clear, and fitment was simple, took about a half hour.
So far I have over 1,000 shells through it and haven't had a single issue.

I ordered one of your stocks for my 870 after doing extensive research of reviews. Much of the complaints were regarding durability and finish quality. As with most things the unsatisfied are the loudest. Given some of the reviews dated back to 2014 with more of the recent being very positive, I purchased from Buds in Kentucky.
Overall satisfactory. However two flaws. First, the holes for the adapter block to enable the attachment to the shotgun we're molded yes but they were sealed over on the ends obviously a casting issue. Simple enough to solve for anyone that has any experience and a drill. I had never seen this complaint previous to my purchase . The second issue however is the quality in the steel of your screws. One of the four inch screws that holds the top and bottom halves of the chassis together cannot even be tightened because the edges on the button head for the hex wrench were rounded. Overall given its a 300-plus dollar item at a minimum since this is a chassis the hardware should be steliar. Being a chassis it's expected that in order to properly clean the firearm at least on occasion the chassis should be removed so the firearm can be completely cleaned. I'm disappointed in this fact for a lot of the complaints that many reviews had are not substantiated. It seems like a relatively sturdy chassis. The stock is now sturdy as can be without a single rattle when shaken. Another complaint was failure to eject. It's been converted into a bullpup. Yes it takes adjustment but I have yet to experience a failure to eject due to short stroking. While I prefer a purpose-built weapon, this chassis does what it's intended for the 870. contacted Bullpup Unlimited and within a couple of days not only did they send a replacement screw for the one that was substandard, they threw in extra screws of the other sizes. Overall satisfied.

I converted a conventional 870 riot gun into a bullpup using this stock. It was easy to do and looks awesome. If you have a need for a compact shotgun, this is the stock conversion to get. Well made, easy to do, reasonable price.

After I worked the bugs out , I ended up with a really great product. It was difficult to assemble. the instructions were very good , but the fit was just slightly off and it took a little bit of work to assemble. The first trip to the range was great fired flawlessly. Second trip was a different story. Fired great from the shoulder . Would not fire from the hip at all. The safety connector ( or whatever they call it ) is attached to the buttplate. There was too much play in it and as long as my shoulder was pressing the buttplate foreward it would fire. Without the pressure , no fire.I ended up putting a small screw connecting the buttplate to the stock . Problem Solved . I have hundreds of rounds through it now and it works every time. Great fun.

i actually bought this conversion kit for a IAC Hawk 942. it fit with minor alteration. had to file the front top half with a flat file at a 35 degree angle to accommodate the rifle sight welded to the barrel. i also had to cut about a half inch out of the center top of the ring you put on the front to secure the upper and lower half. after putting it together, it is solid without issue and very sturdy. great stock for a Remington 870 clone with minor alteration. only thing i found to be somewhat a issue is the trigger bar. if you do not pay attention when putting the stock together it will slip out of position and become unusable. only way to reset it is to tear it down and put it back together. other than that, no issue that cannot be solved for a clone that it was not meant to go on.
