If you own a Remington 870 pump action shotgun then you will probably want to install a magazine extension at some point in order to hold more ammunition. The only problem is you have to remove the dimples that are in the magazine tube first before you can install the extension. Many shotgun owners are afraid of this process because they risk breaking their weapons when trying to remove these dimples. That is why if you are a total newbie to modifying shotguns yourself then you should have a professional do it for you. Otherwise, take it one step at a time.

Shotguns are powerful and versatile weapons but they have very limited magazine capacity. That is why this is one of the first things for a shotgun owner to improve when he starts building his tactical / home defense Remington 870 shotgun.
