Mesa Tactical Magazine/Barrel Clamp for Tactical Shotguns Review

Mesa Tactical Barrel/Magazine Clamp

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.

How to Find out if Remington Model 870 Shotgun has a Magnum Receiver?

Remington 870 Police Magnum

You are probably familiar with how Remington 870 shotguns are made with different gauges. The most common gauge in the model 870 is the 12-gauge. This measures the diameter of the barrel. But what you may not realize is the length of the shells is also as critical to consider as their diameter. If you have 3 inches or 2 ¾ inches shells then you need a magnum receiver that can handle it. Of course, the barrel also has to be equipped to handle up to 3-inch long shells. If it is then you can fire them as long as you have a magnum receiver.

Glock handguns are semi-automatic pistols with polymer frames, which are plastic frames. This makes them light weight and easy to carry around. They also have short recoil when you shoot them, which means they are easier to aim for better accuracy. Since it is semi-automatic, that means the gun will fire a round each time you pull the trigger. That way you don’t have to worry about cocking back a hammer or anything like that.

Important Information about Remington 870 Tactical

Important Information about Remington 870 Tactical

KWhite, one of the members of the Remington 870 forum has asked question about Remington 870 Tactical:

“I just bought my first 870 (I came over from the also excellent Winnie 1300) and ended up getting the basic Tactical. I ordered a Rem slug barrel online – 20″ smoothbore -and I just dropped it in.

An issue: the barrel is fully seated but does not ‘lock’ in, i.e. I can manually disengage the barrel from the receiver quite easily. This seems… problematic.

The 18.5 tactical barrel I just took off of it has a belted groove near the receiver end that seats in the receiver that the slug barrel lacks, as well as a shallower slot opposite the receiver’s opening. Is this what is causing the slide-out?”

“What it looks like is that the barrel ring on the tactical barrel is what holds the barrel on by its tight proximity to the mag cap (extended mag). Since the slug barrel’s ring is farther down the barrel, and therefore not in contact with the mag cap, then there’s naught to hold the barrel into the receiver.”

Later, he has found solution to this problem:

“I just learned this about the 870 Tactical: “Due to the location of the barrel ring on this model you can not change to other Remington Barrels as this is the only one made for this weapon.
