I test a lot of products but when I test CDM Gear products, I feel unbelievable aesthetic pleasure from them. This time, I received a bunch of new barrel/magazine/flashlight clamps for the Remington 870. They are also available for other shotguns like the Mossberg 500. The clamps are great as always, the design is perfect, the form is beautiful and the products are full of features. I remember the first time I received the CDM Gear MOD-C flashlight clamp and it was love at first sight. It looked awesome and the form of the barrel/magazine clamp was futuristic and functional. It is still one of the best ways to attach a flashlight to your Remington 870 or just stabilize and protect the extended magazine tube.

Thanks to CDM Gear for clamps for review!

The Mesa Tactical Magazine/Barrel Clamp for tactical shotguns is a two-piece clamp made of 6061-T6 aluminum which is lightweight and sturdy. The Mil-spec Type 3 hardcoat is anodized to withstand hard use.

So, what is the purpose of the barrel/magazine clamp? It holds the magazine extension more securely to protect it from damage in case of bumps. Hits are very common when you actually use your shotgun for hunting, training or home defense. Just remember that if you hit something with your magazine extension and it brakes, then the spring, follower and all the ammo will just fall out of the magazine tube. If the magazine tube nut stays in place, then you will be able to put your shotgun loading rounds into a chamber. But if the magazine extension and magazine tube are broken, the barrel will not stay in place while making the shotgun useless.
