The Annual Warrior Competition is a combat-oriented competition that is based on physical ability, team work, communication and individual accuracy which takes place at the King Abdullah II Special Operations Training Center (KASOTC) in Amman, Jordan.

It was very interesting to see that they use Remington 870 MCS during this competition:

    At least for the army circa 2003-2004 in iraq, the shotguns weren’t issued with any magazine extensions. If you wanted one, you had to have someone buy it at home and mail it to you (and hope the mail censors didn’t catch it and seize it, somehow the 12 gauge slugs mailed from home never arrived).

    The military rarely supports after market modifications to the weapons they furnish due to manufacturer limited warranty, limited armorer and end user training budgets.
    An after market magazine extension requires a new spring cut to specific length with metallurgy, fabrication and performance specifications that meet or exceed the OEM part it replaces. Sometimes the manufacturer’s magazine extension comes with firearm but the Remington two piece magazine extension does require a barrel clamp and special training to maintain in the field unlike the simple four round magazine tube with spring retaining cap.
