If you think that all shotgun magazine extension tubes are the same with just a small differences then this review will surprise you! ;)
Thanks to Synchronizor for this review
S&J Hardware (http://www.sjhardware.com) is a Canadian manufacturer & retailer of firearms accessories and other shooting-related products. They offer a number of add-ons and replacement components for shotguns, including a line of magazine extensions for the Remington 870 and others. A lot of S&J Hardware’s products have proven popular in the 870 community, such as their magazine followers and Velcro shell carriers, and I’ve personally used several of their accessories for years with good results. Their magazine extensions always sounded really good on paper, but I really hadn’t seen them in the wild much, and had no personal experience with them. This came up in a discussion on the Rem870.com forums, and soon afterward, Scott Mueller, S&J’s United States distributor (http://www.sjhardware.us), contacted me asking if I would be interested in having one sent over for evaluation. Obviously I was interested.
The TacStar Barrel/Magazine Clamp is for those who like simple solutions. This clamp is the most affordable on the market. It serves the same purpose as other shotgun barrel/magazine clamps – to hold and stabilize the magazine extension.

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.

Special thanks to Tactical887 for this review of the new ATI 7 Shot Fluted Magazine Extension.
The new ATI 7 shot fluted magazine extension, is not just all about aesthetics. It is constructed of military type 3 anodized, 6061 T6 aluminum. The standoff cap is designed for breaching doors, however the 7 shot extension runs fairly flush with the bore of an 18.5” barrel (see the first picture below).
Many readers asked me about Nordic Components Magazine Extension Clamp. This clamp looks good and works well. It is wide and holds magazine extension and barrel firmly.
This extension is made of aluminum which makes it lightweight.
The design of this clamp is good and it looks good on Remington 870.
Here’s story from a very talented person, 737mechanic has made his own Mossberg 590A1 Mag Extension for 18.5 Barrel. The final result is really impressive.
