I receive a lot of questions from shotgun owners which want to add a heat shield (barrel shroud) to a shotgun. So, this review will describe available options and how to choose the best heat shield for the Remington 870.
Sage International Shotgun Barrel/Magazine Clamp (Battleclamp) has a very nice smooth design with rounded edges. It stabilizes the magazine extension by clamping it to the barrel. That way, you will not damage the extension if you hit something with it. The Sage International clamp fits Remington 870, 1100, 11-87 and Benelli M1, M2, M4, M1014, 12 gauge shotguns.
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.
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.

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.

About Glock Handguns
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. You just repeatedly pull the trigger if you want to fire multiple rounds. When you combine this convenience with all the other aspects of the weapon, it explains why the Glock is a favorite amongst pistol lovers.
