  2. For some reason I'm not a big fan of folding stocks. I can't see how one would help with skeet, and I doubt you'll be folding or unfolding it in a home defense situation. I'd just get the speedfeed and not worry about it.

    Speedfeed for sure. Although lately I've been thinking that an HD shotgun with an ACE Skeleton stock and Hogue pistol grip would look pretty sweet.

    number 1 if you're making a movie, number 2 if you plan on using this to shoot.

    if you want something for posting pictures on the internet then the ati. If you want a setup your going to shoot alot then the speed feed. I really like the speed feed stock, I would run one but I perfer the strait stock.

    The ATI is horrible. I can't get a good cheek weld on it, and I'm sure I would beat up my face shooting slugs.

    Definately Speedfeed.

    I have a Butler Creek side folding stock and I hate it.

    Unless, of course, you'd like a Butler Creek sidefold stock; perhaps we could work out a deal :hsugh:

    ATI is fucking garbage and I"ve not talked to anyone who has noticed a significant recoil reduction with Knoxx.

    Speedfeed is where it's at. I shot mine (IV-S) with the SWAT pad and a slip on Limbsaver pad and after 400ish rounds at a shotgun class my shoulder felt just as good as it did before the class started.

    It cut down on recoil for me. With my 870 after 50 rounds of field loads my shoulder was starting to ache, now I can run 100+ and it's like nothing. I'm very happy with mine.

    Just saying a limbsaver for $20 at walmart suited me just fine on a stock with zero recoil pad otherwise. thats through 400+ rounds over 3 days. birdshot, buckshot & slug.

    I have the ATI folder and i like it. Easy to get in and out of truck when i'm at my ranch. I've had it for 8 years and its gone through a lot. It offers absolutely no recoil reduction though. This 870 is my fun gun, i wouldn't recommend it for a HD or hunting gun. When i'm hunting i still put on my stock the 870 came with and my 26" barrel

    I'm sorry but I can't stand the look of that stock, way to tacticool. I love the look of my 870 as it is but I just want a pistol grip added on, and as far as I've found the speedfeed best replicates the original stock and has a pistol grip.

    Oh, and whats easier to do: get shells out of the speedfeed stock or use a nylon sleeve that fits over the stock. It seems the sleeve would be easier but I haven't done either so I don't know.

    Side saddle is best for having shells right there ready to go, but not everyone likes those.

    I've never used a speedfeed stock or a nylon carrier, but I would think the nylon would be better if you want to hold moar shells. However, using just the stock will keep the gun looking "cleaner" since you wouldn't have anything hanging off of it :dunno:

    Just my .02

    A side saddle is a permanent modification that has to be installed by a gunsmith right? I want to be able to change it back to stock if I ever change my mind, hence the nylon sleeve.

    sidesaddle is not permanent at all. you remove the receiver pins and install the screw pins to hold the saddle on. just remove it and put the receiver pins back in to take it off.
