Adaptive Tactical’s ‘Less Than Lethal Orange’ Remington 870 EX Performance Stock and Forend Set Receives Approval from NTOA Member Tested and Recommended Program


Nampa, Idaho (June 2018)Adaptive Tactical, LLC, manufacturers of innovative firearm stocks and accessories, is proud to announce its ‘Less Than Lethal Orange’ EX Performance Forend and Adjustable Stock for the Remington 870 was field-tested approved by the National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA) Member Tested and Recommended Program (MTRP). The matching stock and forend set were tested by NTOA members in various parts of North America and rated on a scale of zero to five in a variety of categories such as design, performance and quality. The EX Stock and Forend Set received an approved passing score of 3.96 out of 5.

Both testers found installation to be very easy and appreciated the included forend wrench used to remove / replace the action rails of the Remington 870. Quality and Durability were rated very high by both evaluators, with the Alabama officer stating that his “initial observation of the Adaptive Tactical stock set was it appeared to be very well built and robust…the function and durability of the product is flawless, and the fact that it comes with a picatinny rail and multiple sling points is a big plus.”

Another common favorite feature was the recoil pad. “The thick rubber recoil pad was appreciated. The stock adjusted smoothly and did not break with repeated banging into concrete on its sides and butt, nor did it move from its selected position,” remarked the testing officer from Illinois. The Alabama officer agreed, stating “the recoil pad is thick, rubbery and provides a positive shouldering of the shotgun. The palm swell on the pistol grip is also ambidextrous and fills the hand well. The foregrip is robust and fills the hand well.”

The highly visible bright orange ‘Less Lethal Orange’ EX Performance Forend and Adjustable Stock easily marks the shotgun for use in ‘Less Lethal’ Law Enforcement applications. Optimized for law enforcement and tactical operations, the stock and forend come with a number of advanced design features. The forend features a two-inch Picatinny rail hidden under the nose cap. Once uncovered, it allows for the attaching of tactical accessories like lasers and lights. The stock and forend are made from high-impact, polymer construction and the stock has an oversized, extra strength adjustment pin, making it reliable and tough as nails. In addition to being tough, the adjustable stock has excellent ergonomics and comes with a pistol grip and includes an easy-to-reach rapid adjust lever for custom length-of-pull. The stock also includes an integrated QD swivel attachment and a molded-in non-rust standard sling swivel attachment for secure mounting to various sling systems. The stock has a nonslip vented rubber recoil pad which allows for maximum recoil absorption.
