Any magazine extension preferences for a Remmy 870 Express w/18" barrel? Would be nice if the finish came close to the bead blasted blueing on the shotgun...

Thanks

Choate or wilson combat, as for matching the matte finish then it would be a Wilson Combat.

This'll do ya'. Don't forget to remove the "dimples."

Yeah...none. They jam.

I've got one of these virtually new in the box. Want to buy it? Problem with them (and all the others) is that the springs are too long and they compress inside themselves and jam in the tube, making your shotgun a single shot.

ikor,

Which followers cause problems? Is it specific followers that are the trouble makers or is it that some shotguns randomly have trouble with some followers?

Thanks.

Mine is the 3-shot tube for the 20" barrel. I have noticed that the 3-shot extensions do not parallel the barrel when installed. I think what happens is that when you fully load the extended tube, the follower or a shell rim catches in the bend. I also had one time when the spring compressed inside itself in the end of the extension. I removed the extension, pointed it in a safe direction, and pushed a piece of coat hanger into the small hole in the end. The spring and follower came shooting out at high velocity. Be careful with these things when clearing them from jams!

Anyone have any personal experiance with the wilson 1 shot extension, if so how do you like it, is it 100% realiable, and does it stay put?

ikor do they have a slot for the barrel detent to fit in like a mag cap to keep it from loosening?

That would kind a be a problem in reliablity dept, I would say its probably happend to mag caps also though. The 1 shot extension by wilson looks solid and probably just as reliable as a regular mag cap.
