    I have a Remington SP 1187, 30" barrel, 3", bought it back new in 1988. It has the original stock set, with the butt stock being like a toothpick; hardly any real "meat" to it compared to field gun stocks on todays semi-autos.

    I was thinking to "sporterizing" it and putting a wood sporting stock, or at least a wood sporting butt stock and KickEez pad. This gun would be used just for casual clay shooting and tower shooting.

    Does anyone have recommendation for a cheap, no frills, Home Depot plain jane plywood grain wood stock set? Remington only sells a synthetic stock set, I did not see any wood replacement set, specifically the wood set for their 1187 Sporting guns. Cruising on the web, I did come across Macon gunstocks and saw their ad for uncheckered 1187 woodset. I would like some other opinions for a "cheap" woodset.

    Thanks.

    Anything you are going to find is going to be exactly the same as what you have now in terms of dimensions. Field/skeet dimensions for the 1100 and 1187 have been basically unchanged since 1963.

    You're not going to find a stock that feels like a 391 unless you go custom, if that's what your getting at. Closest thing you're going to find is a straight trap stock, which has a higher, wider, non-parallel comb (actually, probably pretty similar to the 391 sporting stock).

    Slap a Jack West stock set on it and call it good.

    But that might not fit in with the "cheap, no frills, Home Depot plain jane plywood grain wood stock set" theme :)

    For someone who's gone through multiple Perazzis and Krieghoffs in the last couple years, I'd think you'd have enough money to invest in something decent for your 1187 LOL

    nah, don't need a pretty stock.... I still have a deer barrel for this gun and I use it to hunt deer so no fancy wood stocks for this gun :)

    you could use a set of old 1100 press checkering wood. you will have to hog out the forend a bit to fit over the 1187 gas collar
