Is there difference in the slide on an older 870 vs. a newer one? If so, can you describe the difference. Thanks

No difference, O.C.. The only difference in 870's is the magazine tube. Those made from 1994-2004 have 2 dimples in them that need to be removed before an extended mag can be used.
Otherwise, all parts from any year 870 can be interchanged.

Thanks Calvin, but I have a problem. The slide has only 3 tab cutouts and the in order to fit the forearm assembly it requires 4. This must be an older 870 express and I bought a newer bolt assembly.
