Pink rifles, pink magazines and now pink Remington 870 follower! :)
Thanks to Synchronizor for this fantastic review!
One of the attributes that makes the venerable Remington 870 so flexible is the fact that its magazine can easily be expanded without having to change out the barrel or the base magazine tube. It’s not surprising then, that magazine extension options abound for the 870, and an extension is often one of the first things to be considered when planning a build.
Shortly after I purchased my 870 Express Tactical with the factory 2 round magazine extension I noticed issues with the follower binding. I would load 6 rounds into the magazine, but occasionally when firing only the first two rounds would be fed from the magazine. I took out the tape measure and found that it was stopping when the factory magazine follower was passing the union between the standard magazine and the magazine extension.
I have already had post with most of the Remington 870 followers available. Today I want to tell you about another follower made by Brownells:

I receive many complaints about factory magazine follower from Remington 870 owners. It is cheap and easy to brake. This is number one cause for feeding problems. First Remington 870s had metal followers which were strong and reliable.
