Go to numrich, brownells or whatever your favorite gun parts site might be. See if the same part number works on both guns. I have never tried to use a 870 stock on a 1187. The fore stock will not work and I really doubt the butt stock is going to work.

in the automatic the recoil spring is in the stock, so no the 870 stock will not work.

The automatic needs a big hole in the stock to accommodate the recoil spring and tube.
