I have a 16ga Remington 870. It is the new model, 2 years old. I need a replacement butt stock. Will the stock from a 20 gauge fit?
Thanks; Tom

Tom,
The new 16 ga. 870s are based on the 12 ga. frame on the 20 ga. I have an as new set, matching 12 ga. Wingmaster stock, pad and forearm for sale if you were interested.

When Remington first introduced 20 ga in the 870 and 1100 they used 12ga recievers. Those early guns are called standard 20's Jeff

I am still getting two answers. Some say 12ga & 20ga heavy frame, some PM me to say the 16ga is on the light 20ga frame. Tom

Tom,
Sorry about the typo. I meant to say the current production 16 ga. 870 uses the 12 ga. stock NOT the 20ga. The current production 20 ga. is a smaller stock and receiver which was once known at the light weight or LWT. I have 12, 16 and 20 870's and it is clear to see the 12 & 16 are same size and the 20ga. is smaller.
