12ga 870 stock on a 20ga 870

I came up with this based on my need to offer more options for my builds and I contacted Mitch at Mesa and he saw the benefits of it. He has manufactured it and it is no available from Mesa Dealers or on their web site. You can no mount most 12ga 870 stocks on the 20ga 870 with the use of this adapter. I don't recommend using it on the SpecOps as it leaves a pinch point. I have used it to mount the Mesa LEO with Hydraulic buffer tube and shooting the 20ga 870 with that stock is a dream. I also used it to mount the Urbino and loved it. Here is the info from the Mesa web site if anyone wants to upgrade their 20ga 870.:
Mesa Tactical dramatically expands stock options for 20ga Remington shotguns. Mesa Tactical, supplier of rugged and reliable tactical gear for law enforcement, military and personal protection has introduced an adapter for 20 gauge Remington 870 shotguns to use 12 gauge 870 butt stocks. Called the Lucy™ Adapter, this elegantly simple coupler simply bolts to the back of a 20 ga Remington 870 receiver, allowing the 12 gauge stock to then rigidly bolt to the adapter. This greatly increases the options and availability of butt stocks for the 20 gauge shotgun. The 20 ga Remington 870 is an excellent platform for personal defense, but it suffered from fewer tactical butt stock offerings than its 12 gauge counterpart. The Lucy Adapter solves this problem.
AI&P Tactical has long been an advocate of the 20 gauge shotgun as a tactical platform. Needing professional use tactical products for their 20 gauge shotgun builds, AI&P contacted Mesa Tactical about making an adapter to fit 12 gauge stocks onto the smaller 20 gauge frames. The resulting adapter helps AI&P meet the needs and requests looking to fit Mesa Tactical stocks onto their 20 gauge Remington 870 shotguns. The adapter’s namesake is Mesa Tactical’s Sales Director, Lucy Espinoza. After receiving numerous requests for Mesa Tactical’s popular Urbino Stock for the 20 ga Remington 870, and being a 20 gauge fan herself, she pushed for the development of the adapter.
Prices and availability
Made from cast steel with a parkerized finish, the Lucy Adapter is now available online or a dealer near you.

I have used it on the Mesa LEO, Mesa Urbino, Remington LE 13" LOP, Speedfeed stocks and Standard Remington Synthetics. It should also work on the Remington wood stocks.

I do not recommend it on the Knoxx Specops as it leaves a pinch point due and I would not think it was safe to fire. However, It would very difficult to get any part of a finger into that area but I have to be over cautions in all things. Someone could try it and decide it is fine and that is their call.

To my mind, the next evolution of this nifty product will be adding either one or two snap in loops on either of the sides.

My motivation for this was of course to be able to use many different stocks. I was able to convince Mitch and Lucy that it was a good idea so they could use it to make their stocks available for use on the Remington 20ga. Since their stocks have multiple sling mounts already I would hard pressed to get them to include a mount in the adapter. However, being about anything made in this business that becomes successful is stolen or copied, it would not surprise me to see someone do this.
