    ANyone know where I can find a fore end for my AOW? I bought a speed feed grip set. It had a "bird's head" type pistol grip and a fore end. I had the quick change pistol grip removed and the new grip installed but the fore end is too long for the weapon. I REALLY don't like the fore end that is on there. Anyone know where I can go to get this changed? The AOW is an 870 and hold 3 in the tube, one in the pipe.

    I'm brand new here (roughly 10 minutes as of this post) and the search I tried was offering the weapon system. All I need is the fore end.

    Thanks in advance.

    Turns out that those are not quite what I need. The Witness Protection model has the fore end I need but I can't seem to find it anywhere. The only place I've found them are on site selling the weapons and I don't need another gun, just the fore end. This is a little aggravating.

    So far nothing. Everything I've found is just a little too big or if it is the size I need, it's not in stock. The witness protection models are 4 in tube one in pipe. I have the breacher model which is 3 and 1. Looks like I'm gonna have to try and modify the full size forend that I have or find someone/someplace to make me one.

    That's what I was going to suggest, cut one down...if you take your time, maybe you can make it look like an original "breacher" forearm too...
