Converting a Model 870 Youth shotgun to an adult size shotgun

Table of contents


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, or by calling us at 1-800-243-9700 M-F 9am-5pm EST.
