    Maybe. Maybe not.

    Late model 870 stocks are the same as the 1100/1187, and use a longer stock bolt with a wide washer to mount on an 870.

    Earlier 870 stocks will not directly mount on an 1100/1187. They can be converted, though. The hole needs to be enlargened to fit over the 1100/1187 action spring tube. Then a tube or pipe needs to be slide over the action sleeve tube so the stock nut and washer has something to bear against.

    An 1100/1187 stock can mount directly on an 870 provided the longer stock bolt and washer are used.

    I have a old 20ga 870 that is on a 12ga frame. I called remington about geting another stock. They sent me a 12ga 1100 stock. I had to drill the hole deeper for the stock nut to go on. Otherwise, it fit like a glove. The wood will mount on the receiver with no problem. I totally agree with Brain.

    The longer 870 stock bolt prevents needing to drill the hole deeper when using an 1100 stock on an 870. This longer stock bolt is available from Remington parts.

    I repalce the straight stock on my 870 with a MC stock and needed a longer bolt. Iused a piece of all thread with washer, lock washer and nut workes great.

    The lady from Remington told me they one sell one stock for either gun. This was about 2 years ago. Guess the bolt is what makes the difference.
