I am waiting on a Mesa stock I paid for from a member on this site. In the mean time while waiting, I am selling a Original Remington top fold stock. I was hoping to get the Mesa stock by now, but buyer wants my folder now. Now to the question, when I removed the folder, there was a metal spacer between the stock and the receiver. Is this part of the folding stock or will I need it for the Mesa LEO stock? I have another 870 and it has the ractory black stock, and it does not need the spacer, just don't know the Mesa setup. Thanks for any info, Ed Feel free to PM or email direct.
