    Maybe someone out there can help me with a question. What is the purpose of the shorter (a 7.25 inch in length) forend on a Remington 870? Normally one will see the longer forend on the 870. I'm setting up a 20 Gauge 870 with a 13" LOP for my daughter. Thanks for your help. Jim.

    One reason is for the use of a sidesaddle shell carrier. Remington doesn't like to think we put these on but we do. Standard forends won't work with a sidesaddle.

    Thanks Savage99Stan for the quick answer/response. I did a Google Search and now know what a Side Saddle Shell carrier is. Thanks so much, Jim.
