    Anyone out there make a longer stock bolt for 870. I need one 2.5" longer. I have a 1187 stock I wish to mount to my 870. I would rather not drill out the stock. I would like to mount back onto 1187 when needed.

    Take the 11-87 bolt to any machine shop. They should be able to fabricate a copy in short order.

    I believe the 870 bolt is a standard 1/4 X 20 thread. Take your bolt to any hardware store and buy a matching thread hex bolt the right length or slightly longer, then trim to fit if needed. The hex bolt is easier to install than the slotted head original.

    The thread is 1/4-28, not 1/4-20. A length of 1/4-28 all-thread, two 1/4-28 hex nuts and some red Loctite solve the problem in about 5 minutes.

    or just buy a late model 870 stock bolt or a stock bolt for a Remington synthetic stock. the 870 1100 synthetic stocks are the same and the one sold for an 870 uses a longer bolt than the older wood stock. I am told Remington now uses the longer bolt for wood stocks for 870s

    Remington does now use the longer bolt for new wood stock 870's.

    They have gone to using/ making one wood stock for 11-87 and 870 etc rather than having more than one stock made as far as the internal dimensions.

    You can buy a bolt directly from Remington. I bought a new stock from them for an older 870 I have and called them back when I discovered the old bolt was too short. they indicated that went to using a 11-87 stocks for 870's and a longer bolt and sent me the correct bolt.
