Shame on you.  I was in the woods Sunday and I lost my mag clamp.  I went back with a metal detector to find it in the leaves, but couldn't.  I am afraid to leave the mag extension on it now so I'm back to my old mag cap and 4 rounds.  I never thought about a mag clamp untill I came to this site.  So shame on you.

If it came off that easy I don't think it was doing you any good anyway.

You wouldn't have lost it if you would have had a sling attached to it.  (Unless you happen to have a single-point sling or some other configuration.)  

A long gun without a sling is like a handgun without a holster.  

But seriously, you do need to have a mag clamp on there to protect the threads of your gun.  It's an expensive fix if you bump that extension and strip the receiver's threads.

I honestly believe that that mag clamp stuff is hooey. Your mag extension will be fine with out it.

I had cleaned the gun earlier and forgot to tighten the clamp back.  It is the same one used on Benelli shotguns.  One reason I like it is because it doesn't have a sling swivel on it.  I already have a sling swivel on my Wilson mag extension.

"I honestly believe that that mag clamp stuff is hooey. Your mag extension will be fine with out it. "

Bad advice right there - don't listen to it... Like someone else said, it's a very expensive fix after the mag tube gets damaged from being unsupported properly...
