    Well, I've always thought the Magpul 870 stocks were ugly (the forends look good IMO...) but the flat dark earth version is a little more aesthetically pleasing than the rest; at least to me. Here's a run down of the pros and cons for the stock and forend:

    Stock

    Pros:

    -12.5''-14.5'' adjustable LOP
    -Very easy to install
    -I find the grip angle very ergonomic
    -The fit with the receiver is great
    -The grip area allows for better retention in the event of a gun grab attempt
    -Adjustable cheek risers for use with optics availible
    -A couple different options to attach slings
    -Standard 870 recoil pads can be used with the stock (requires an additional Magpul adaptor)

    Cons:

    -Cost (anywhere from $85-100)
    -It's ugly looking
    -Only available for Remington 870s at the moment; Magpul says the Mossberg versions are in the works

    Forend

    Pros:

    -Cost (between $25-35 most places)
    -Ease of installation
    -Modularity (slots accept standard Magpul rails and accessories)
    -Very solid fit; no wobble like some forends
    -The built in handstop really helps you get a positive grip to run the gun hard even with sweaty hands
    -Looks good

    Cons:

    -Creates wear marks on the barrel/mag tube (doesn't bother me but it may bother some)

    Here's a video of me shooting my 870P with the SGA furniture and discussing some of the pros and cons of the setup:
