    Got it all pulled apart. Everything was in good condition except for the corncob forend. It was split under the barrel and slightly rotted. Not worth saving. It broke off very easily in two pieces. Then came the issue of removing the forend tube nut. It was rusted on pretty good, so I tried soaking it in Kroil for a few hours, but that failed. The only thing it did was melt the cup I was using. Washed it off, then soaked overnight in vinegar. That removed the rust, bluing, and allowed the nut to break free by hand. Waiting on a new barrel and +2 extension, then it goes off to get coated.

    Nice, what coating are you going with? You getting aftermarket synthetic furniture? If so which ones?

    I have a Magpul SGA stock and forend on the way.

    Originally, I was going to parkerize it, but I decided to have it cerakoted. It will be some form of OD green.

    Once I realized the forend wasn’t in such great shape, I ditched any ideas of refinishing the wood. I like the look of the original wood with a short barrel, but given the shape of this gun, it’s going to get a modern treatment.

    If I decide to later on, I will pick up a new forend tube assembly and Flexibar kit.

    Soaked the small parts in Vinegar as well, but left out the springs and tiny parts. Then scrubbed everything down with degreaser/cleaner and dried all parts. Set them aside in a sealed bag with a few squirts of CLP to prevent any rusting while I wait for parts to get coated.

    I guess you won't be drinking Knoil out of a Solo cup anymore.
    Nice project.

    I'm thankful that it's in good shape. The lifter has a few spots on, but after scrubbing it, it looks good for being 70 years old.

    I wish I took photos of the trigger and safety before cleaning them up, because I've never seen so much gunk in my life. I suppose I am the first person to pull it apart since 1950.

    Magpul furniture arrived today along with the 18" Cylinder Bore barrel I found on clearance at Cabela's of all places.

    Waiting on the Wilson Combat +2 Extension then it can go to Cerakote.

    Taking a 870 apart is not as easy as a moss 500. I have multiples of both, and I prefer the Mossberg for the weight reduction. I'll never shoot either enough to wear them out.
