LEO® Telescoping Stock Adapter For Rem 870 (12-GA And 20-GA)
Mesa Tactical's LEO® telescoping stock adapters and pistol grip stock systems for tactical shotguns feature a stock elevation about an inch lower than the High-tube adapters and don’t require sighting or aiming aids. The concept is simple: the shotgun stock is replaced by an adapter that mimics the stock attachment point of an AR-15 lower receiver. This adapter accepts an AR-15 receiver mil-spec buffer tube. The AR-15 collapsible stock and pistol grip can then be reliably attached to the shotgun.
The stock adapter system enables tactical operators to instantly adjust the length of pull of the telescoping stock in order to accommodate differences in individual body sizes, or when wearing body armor, without compromising the safest shooting position. The LEO telescoping stock system also incorporates a new and advanced sling attachment method, which accommodates a wide variety of optional sling styles.
The most important capability of these adapters is to facilitate the use of collapsing or telescoping stocks, which provide a shorter length of pull (LoP) than the factory stock, which is especially important for law enforcement or “tactical” operators. In addition, these stock adapters accept a recoil reducing hydraulic buffer from Crosshair™ that reduces felt recoil. The Mesa Tactical/Crosshair combination is by far the most robust and most effective of several recoil-reducing shotgun stock systems on the market.
TELESCOPING STOCK AND ADAPTER KITS
There are two lines of Mesa Tactical telescoping stock adapters:
1. High-tube® telescoping stock adapters, which mimic the geometry of an AR-15/M-4 rifle with an elevated cheek weld and Picatinny rail for mounting optical sights at the correct height.
2. LEO® telescoping stock adapters, which feature a stock elevation about an inch lower than the High-tube adapters and so don’t require sighting or aiming aids.
These adapters are available in two types of kits, adapter kits or complete stock kits.
All of Mesa Tactical’s products are manufactured in the United States from high grade mil-spec hard anodized aircraft aluminum and come with a lifetime warranty.
LEO® Telescoping Stock Adapters and Conversion Kits
Stock kits additionally include an M4 Carbine style telescoping buttstock assembly, an ERGO AR pistol grip, a stamped steel stock wrench and a push-button sling swivel. A slip-on rubber butt pad for the M4 Carbine buttstock is available separately. All LEO adapters accept optional push-button sling swivels, and Remington 870 LEO adapters can accept stamped steel pocket sling loop and hook loops.
Our M4 Carbine recoil stock assembly offers hydraulic felt recoil suppression for telescoping shotgun stocks. Replaces the buttstock assembly on all Mesa Tactical telescoping stock systems. CANNOT BE FITTED TO AR-15 RIFLES.
The Crosshair Hydraulic Buffer is also available separately and can be fitted to mil-spec buttstocks.

For my 6’3” frame, the ergonomics of the factory configuration simply sucks. Ran a Magpul SGA Stock on my 870 which was an improvement but still left a lot to be desired. Then I realized my answer lay in my AR. That’s when I did my research, and tested whatever I could test. I started with a TacStar Adapter with spare AR Parts I had laying around. Stuck a Mil Spec Buffer Tube, Magpul MIAD with the Large Back Strap modified your fit, then added the Magpul CTR Stock. I found the Ergonomics spot on but hated the presence of a drop angle for the Stock and Buffer Tube. By this point I knew the cheap TacStar did the job of testing the layout of adapting AR parts to an 870 Shotgun. Mesa Tactical was my first look. I looked at the relatively few other manufacturers out there but all of them again had the drop angle that I wanted gone. Dug deeper into the Mesa Tactical website and found this product. I ordered it and once it got in, it didn’t take long for me to mount at all. The parts that came with it, pretty much are instructions in itself. A Village Idiot can do the install, because it’s that simple. Only hard part was further modifying the Back Strap to the MIAD Grip. When I finished, the drop angle was gone, and the tube was straight as any AR Stock is supposed to be. The Gunsmith at my local Gun Shop/Indoor Range didn’t believe me when I told him I did the Modification to the MIAD Grip. Took it to the range today and my shot pattern improved because of the now perfect ergonomics. That’s when I noticed another win. I can engage or disengage the factory safety without taking my hand off the grip. I’ve already recommended this product for all of my friends who have shotguns and look to improve usability.
Arrived on time. Works great.
While it works great (5 Stars) on my 870 express with plastic trigger group, It will not fit my 870 Police magnum with the Aluminum trigger group (1 star) as the Police magnum trigger group is to wide to allow the adapter to fit around. Poor execution seeing as it is marketed as a LEO adapter, that won't fit an LEO designed shotgun.
I originally purchased this adapter for my 20 gauge 870, but my OCD would not let me live down the size difference in the adapter to the stock. I ended up getting ahold of an 12 gauge express magnum from 1995. The issue with that shotgun was that it didn't fit with the adapter due to the trigger guard being all metal, there by being thicker. I had to grind away some of the metal from the inside of the adapter to get it to fit.
THE ITEM WAS SHIPPED IN A TIMELY MANNER AND IT WAS OF HIGH QUALITY. IT FUNCTIONED AS ADVERTIZED
