The time has come to remove the wood and slap on the plastic!
Does anyone have any experience with Speedfeed's shotgun stocks that store extra shells in the stock?
My concern is the shells could jump out of their holding devices under the force of recoil or misuse.
Are Speedfeed any better, worse, or the same as Choate stocks?

I've had one of these on my 870 for some time. The stock is durable and has a reduced LOP. The storage tubes for the extra shells have held them secure during firing but on occasion, while loading the tubes the springs will bind and remain in the collapsed position. This is remedied by taking the recoil pad off and unbinding the spring. The recoild pad on mine doesn't fit as tightly to the rear of the stock as I would like and to prevent the stock bolt from working loose during extended firing sessions I applied Lok-Tite to it.

I just bought a used Rem. 870 police from a gun show in Leesport,Pa. that has the speedfeed stock and i love it. Since i bought it, i added a side saddle and an extension tube and a barrel heat shield. All i did was remove the butt pad and clean the springs and the plungers. I've had no problem with mine and i used the stock a number of times now with no real problem.

I have installed Speedfeed and Choate.
The speedfeed are well made, but when firing, the added weight of the 4 shells increased the recoil (weight at the rear as opposed to the front).
I prefer Choate stocks, but when building them for others, will install Speedfeed after telling them of my experience.

I have had a Speedfeed stock on my Mossberg 500 for over a decade now. I am well pleased with it.
The 3" mags will sometimes kick hard enough to dislodge the shells from the stock. I have never experienced this with 2 3/4" shells. To me, that is not a problem, as I only use 2 3/4" anymore.
I find it an elegant solution to the problem of having a few more rounds. Much more attractive than a side saddle or a butt cuff. I like it.

Great for carrying specialty rounds for rapid access..used to carry slugs on one side--CS ferrets on the other. Wont damage the receiver like a side saddle..back bore the barrel forcing cones to reduce recoil and improve shot groups.

I have used the speedfeed for many a year (10+?). I do not recommend them. If you want to make a rapid combat reload, go with a side saddle. You cannot keep your weapon on target and ready to fire when you are trying to pull the rounds from the stock.
Mixing slugs and gas on the same stock? Bad idea. When the SHTF in the real world, are you going to remember which is which under stress? Mixing fatal and less-lethal rounds on the same gun has great potential to get someone killed.

speed feed stocks
My main issue with speed feed is they seem to have a high comb. Getting a proper sight picture is tricky. I hear they have remedied this but have not seen the new configuration. My personal preference is Choate.

I haven't used the one with the storage space for shells, but the Speedfeed stocks are the best I've tried. Fit me like a glove.
