Need a stock for my 870... Hogue?

    I've started playing around with the stock on my 870 again... I took off the Mesa Urbino, and replaced it with the factory Remington stock, and I remember why I quit using it. The grip is just too narrow, and there's really no grip texture.

    So I'm thinking Hogue... any thoughts? Good experiences? Bad experiences? Any other suggestions? Not looking for wood or a pistol grip, just a traditional polymer stock.

    Thanks!

    I have a Hogue on my Win 1200.

    It fills the palm swell, it's rubberized so there's texture and it has a pretty soft recoil pad. No complaints. 12" LOP. If you're an Oompa-Loompa this should be one of your first considerations.

    On my 870P I have the Remington Youth stock with the inclusive R3 pad. It has molded checkering that's pretty sharp and has stayed that way for a long time on my gun. No complaints. 13" LOP.

    Some hosers around here like the Speedfeed IV-S so give that a look too.

    Good to know, that sounds like what I am looking for. I shoot pretty square to the target, but the 12" is too short for me on non-PG stocks.

    I have thought about trying the older style Remington stock (mine's the newer one without the checkering... just posted a pic in the pic thread), but I mean, Hogue seems to be the way to go.

    And I've tried the SpeedFeed IV-S, but no PG stock compares to the Ubino for me.
