The GrovTec US Mtmx3 is an extended magazine tube mount which is made specifically for the Remington 870 pump-action shotgun. It gives users 3 different methods for mounting their shotgun accessories, such as a sling. The components which come with this product include a Picatinny rail, swivel stud and push button base. The mount is compatible with the factory 12-gauge extended magazine tube of the Remington 870 and provides it with additional security. Not compatible with other magazine extensions like Nordic Components.
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 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.
One of the most common upgrades you can make to your Remington 870 shotgun is adding a flashlight to it.
A flashlight mounted onto your Remington 870 will give you the necessary light source you need to see what’s nearby. If you use your Remington 870 for home defense then the flashlight mount will come in handy during day or night. Even if there’s daylight outside, there could be a target that comes indoors or in an area where it is shaded from the sun. It is better to be safe than sorry so it is always a good idea to equip your shotgun with a flashlight mount. It is lightweight and doesn’t take up much space on your weapon.
Shotgun flashlight clamps are usually made of plastic or aluminum. They cost about $60-80. Magnetic flashlight clamps are little cheaper, about $30-40. But what if I say that you can buy shotgun flashlight clamp for just five bucks? And this is not a joke.
My friend gave me inexpensive Chinese bicycle clamp which is made of strap and plastic. He told me that it can be easily used as shotgun flashlight mount.
Wilson Combat +2 Magazine Extension and Nordic Components Clamp from mnhoj from Remington 870 Forum:
My latest upgrade to my 870 Express Tactical is a new barrel clamp from CDM Gear. It is the BMT Clamp with 3 Slot Rail. There are a few reasons why I purchased one of these.
First, it is a little lighter than the stock steel unit. It is made from two pieced of machined metal and is very durable. The weight difference is not too noticeable, but I am a big fan reducing the weight of anything I need to carry, especially if there are other added benefits.

Benelli Supernova is one of the best shotguns for competition shooting. I will have separate post about advantages it gives to a competition shooter. This post is about Benelli Supernova upgrades and accessories.
I decided to get the longest 28″ barrel because my +7 extension is still longer than the barrel. Longer barrel enables you to hit the targets on longer distances.

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.
