There was a trap version that came the full way back to the receiver with the action closed.

That's it! Any ideas where to get one?

If it is of interest i have a nice walnut stock set - gloss finish quality checkering-from a nicer 870, the forend is 9". It just sits in a drawer I would be better off selling it. Don't know if that would help you. IM or email if you have interest

Thanks for the offer, but I already have a walnut set. Looking to make it a more tactical type shotgun.

Pardon, but if you are building a tactical type shotgun, do you want to have the loading chute blocked by the forend when the action is open ?

The TB and TC trap fore-end is 11.00inches long

Here is my TC Trap 870

you would need a shot forarm to be able to put a saddle on the gun if you want to have a tactical type gun

I have heard others say this, but I fail to see how it is a problem, You can not easly load a 870 with the action open. The shell lifter goes all the way to top making it hard to load the magazine. It is easier to load with the action closed.

I agree, unless you need to throw one in the chute. That's why I said it would not be a problem

Even with the action open and a long fore-end you can still load a rd through the ejection port and close the action
