The Model 870 Youth or Model 870 Compact can be converted to an adult size by changing the rear stock to an adult length stock. The youth stock has a 13 inch length of pull, whereas the adult stock has a 14 inch length of pull (The fore end does not need to be changed). A new stock bolt may be needed depending on the type of stock you replace it with. Also, you may wish to change the barrel from a 21 inch barrel to a 26 inch or 28 inch barrel. Parts for this conversion may be purchased through our online store at www.shopremingtoncountry.com, or by calling us at 1-800-243-9700 M-F 9am-5pm EST.
