Remington 870 Owners - Question about Forend Alignment?

I have a Remington 870 12 gauge tactical, and noticed for the first time, looking from the top, that the synthetic forend isn't aligned with the barrel.

It looks like it's leaning a bit (laterally) to the left.

If you have a 870, can you tell me if yours is similar or straight?

I appreciate it JonJon. Funny you should mention it, I have a set of flat dark earth Magpul stock and forend on order.

I've decided to give my Remy a makeover from it's current "Mall Ninja" configuration (AR-15 pistol grip stock, vertical foregrip, full length rail) to something a bit more traditional.

It's Remington tolerances, so it's not abnormal for that fitment to be a slight bit off. The 870, while a generally robust shotgun, certainly isn't a very refined gun. Remington has pretty wide open tolerances for some of their guns, including the 870.
I often wonder if their QC motto is "meh, as long as it still works.."

I'm sure that could be the motto of a number of different firearms manufacturers...

The Wilson Combat Professional 870s we use have the same issue. It's just the way they are.

I have to remember its a shotgun , I'm just so use to my Colt for long guns. Luckily it turns out that the only thing misaligned is the factory plastic forend.

Thanks Shwagon, that looks just like mine. I found out the issue, it's simply the factory forend is molded a little off, and it cannot be adjusted since there is a notch that keeps it in place. I can just file that notch down and adjust it, but it doesn't matter now that the Amazon fairy made a deliver

That stock looks huge when attached to the 870 in the pictures on the magpul site.

I think it's the usual shape of it that gives that impression, but without the extensions, it's actually shorter than the factory stock.

I originally had Knoxx Spec Opps pistol grip type stock on it, but after trying out a Magpul equipped one, I sold my old stock and order Mapguls.

shorter but chunky, you're covering a little up in that pic. Knoxx is a pretty great stock, how does this one differ in feel?

The Magpul is totally natural, just feels right. After reading all the glowing reviews and watching all the video reviews I could find, I finally had a chance to try one out, and it was perfect.

The stock is shorter with a almost pistol grip handle which allows you to bring it up perfectly. You can adjust the LOP easily with the supplied extensions. The one in the pic above as two of those spacers installed.

The forend grips a lot better than the stock one, and includes a hand stop molded in. It also has the slots available for adding Mapguls tactical rails for flashlights, forend grips, etc.

The only issue is the price, Magpul isn't cheap, but in this case you get what you pay for.

Thanks, one of the parts guys at the dealer I worked at went to the original expedition and bought that poster. I picked it up for like $50, I need to get a decent frame for it...
