Bought and refinished a wooden stock to replace the synthetic stock on my 870. Butt stock went on with no issues. Not so lucky with the forearm! Old stock came off easily, but the wooden one will not go on. The action tube is way too big to go thru the forearm. It wont even start thru. The nut on the other end of the tube will not go into the stock either! Tried spreading the forearm a little but it still wont go.
anyone ever run into this problem? Am I going to have to go at it with a rasp and sandpaper?
