    Yes it will. Make sure that it is on properly as it will wear the blueing off the reciever where the forearm rubs it. You will need a tool with at least 41/2"'s of reach in order to get to the nut.

    I've got a long reach 870 forearm tool that should do the trick. Just wanted to make sure that it will fit before buying it.

    Will the front of the forearm be past the mag tube cap when it is fully forward?

    trapstar1,

    My fault, I used the Comp iron as well. I don't know if it will fit using the standard 870 iron. Sorry about the miss info.

    That's what I was thinking, the standard iron would be too short for the forearm.

    Thanks for the info!

    The long Competition forend wood can be used on a regular 870 but you will need a metal spacer to make up for the shorter length of the forend tube on the Competition model. The spacer should be made of about 3/32 inch wall tubing that slide fits over the forend tube and inside the forend wood.

    Dimensions of the spacer are:

    ID 1.0",
    OD 1.25",
    length 3.425"

    To install, the forend metal/action bars go in first, then the spacer, then the locking nut.
