I'm about to put an 18" barrel on my 870. The longest extension I can have is a +2 correct? Which extension do you guys prefer? Is the Tac Star extension trash? TIA

You will want to go with a +2 extension.

I have a Tac Star and would not buy it again if I had the chance. The tube is crooked, the spring is a little underpowered, and it feels cheeply made. I am planning on getting a Wilson Combat +2 extension for my next build.

Wilson +2. It's one of the few one piece tubes on the market tube which makes installation and take down simpler.

Personally, I like the Wilson extension and also have used the factory Remington +2 and +3 with no issues. Next will be the Vang +2 on the big Super Mag.

Wilson Combat, best value on the Market in a tube extension.  $45 any where and comes with a sling plate or vertical plate with a quick detach stud on no sling plate.  Lot's of forward mounting options to pick from.

Another vote for Wilson. I like the way the sling attachment is affixed to the system.

Two round extension puts it flush with your barrel end,

I like the Wilson, Remington, and Nordic. I have heard good things about the Vang Comp as well.

I run a vangcomp +2 unit on my 870 along with a Wolff spring that Ive had to fine tune to my liking...good stuff

I have the Remington, Wilson, and a Nordic on my Benelli,

I'd recommend the Wilson first, then the Nordic. The Nordic is pricey.   I don't really care for the Remington, actually I think I'm gonna sell it and buy a couple Wilsons.

I wonder how hard it is to cut the sling plate off the Wilson without screwin it up.

Anyone know what type of finish is on the Vang Comp and Wilson extended mag tubes? Looking for a +1 for my 870P.
ETA-Sorry for the slight thread "HI-JACK".

The wilson is parkerized, it matches my 870P damn near perfect.
