For starters, you’ll need to make sure that the gun is unloaded and that the action is open. Once you’ve done that, locate the stock bolt (it’s typically located near the trigger guard) and loosen it until the stock can be removed. Keep in mind that you may need a wrench or other tool to help loosen the bolt.

Now, depending on what kind of stock you have, there may be different instructions for removing it. For example, if you have a factory buttstock &fore-end assembly with two screws holding it in place, simply remove those screws and the stock should come right off. However, if you have a wood stock, you’ll need to be more careful as you remove it so as not to damage the finish.

Once the stock is removed, you should be able to see the trigger assembly and other internal parts of the gun. At this point, you can clean the gun, make any necessary repairs, and then reassemble it. Keep in mind that you may need to readjust the stock bolt once the gun is back together so that the stock fits snugly against the receiver.

Here are some quick and easy steps to remove the stock from your Remington 870 shotgun:

1. First, check to make sure the gun is unloaded. Remove the magazine cap and slide the action release lever to the right, then open the action and look inside to ensure there are no shells in either the chamber or magazine tube.

2. Next, locate the two screws that secure the stock to the receiver. These are located just behind the trigger guard, on either side of the receiver.

3. Using a screwdriver or other appropriate tool, remove these screws and set them aside.

4. With the screws removed, you should now be able to pull the stock away from the receiver. If there is any resistance, make sure both screws have been removed and that the action release lever is in the correct position.

5. With the stock removed, you can now access the receiver itself and begin cleaning or performing other maintenance as needed.

First, make sure that the gun is unloaded and that there is no ammunition in the vicinity. Once you’ve ensured the safety of the situation, locate the two screws that attach the stock to the body of the gun – these are typically located at the front and rear of the stock near where it meets the receiver.

Using a screwdriver or similar tool, loosen and remove these screws. With the screws removed, you should now be able to gently pull the stock away from the receiver (again, taking care that there is no ammunition around). You may need to wiggle/jiggle the stock a bit to get it free, but once it’s lost it should come off easily.

And that’s all there is to it! Just reverse the process when you’re ready to reattach the stock and you’ll be good to go.

Please note: while this process will work for most Remington 870 models, there may be some slight variations depending on the specific gun you have. Consult your owner’s manual or contact the manufacturer if you’re unsure about anything.

When it comes to firearms, it is always important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions. In the case of the Remington 870, there are a few steps that need to be followed to safely and properly remove the stock.

First, make sure that the firearm is unloaded. Second, push the release button located just behind the trigger guard, and then slide the stock assembly forward off of the receiver. Sometimes there will be a small amount of resistance when doing this, but do not force it – if you encounter too much resistance, something may be caught or misaligned. If this happens, carefully investigate before proceeding.

Now that the stock is off of the firearm, take a moment to inspect the inside of the receiver for any dirt, debris, or corrosion that may have built up. If everything looks clean and in good condition, reassemble the stock (making sure that it is properly seated on the receiver), and then proceed to load and shoot your Remington 870 as normal.

There are a few different ways to remove the stock on a Remington 870, depending on what type of stock you have.

If you have a factory original stock, two screws need to be removed to take it off.

However, if you have an aftermarket model or a Magpul-style stock, there may be only one screw or no screws at all.

In either case, simply following the manufacturer’s instructions should get the job done quickly and easily.
