XS Sights Plus 2 Magazine Tube Extension for Remington 870 Shotguns
Terry Nelson 03.22.21
If you own a Remington 870 shotgun, especially one with an 18 to 20-inch barrel you will be happy to know there is now another option on the market to expand the magazine capacity by two rounds. XS Sights Plus 2 Magazine Tube Extension for Remington 870 shotguns are now available. XS Sights located in Fort Worth, Texas and known for their excellent pistol sights is now offering the new XS Sights Plus 2 Magazine Tube Extension for the Remington 870. I have been a long-time user of the Rem 870, both in the field and in the law enforcement arena, and would liked to have had this lightweight magazine extension long ago. XS Sights has offered the following press release to give all the details of their new Rem 870 mag extension.
XS Sights is pleased to introduce the Remington 870 +2 Magazine Tube Extension Kit for easy do-it-yourself installation. This lightweight magazine tube extension increases the capacity of standard Remington 870 shotguns by two shotshells and allows for the mounting of additional tactical upgrades. The kit includes a factory detent removal tool, a 45” Wolff 12-gauge extended spring, and the +2-extension tube.
“This is a great product for shooters looking to expand the versatility of their standard four-shot 870,” said Zack Kinsley, Marketing Manager for XS Sights. “We have sold the tool to remove the factory detents for years and decided to provide a complete system that is simple, lightweight, and allows for personal preference tactical upgrades while installing the tube.”
Made from 6061 aluminum that is hard coat anodized, this one-piece tube weighs less than traditional steel tubes. The tip of the extension has wrench flats enabling an easier grip while attaching the tube. The flats also offer shooters the ability to use an adjustable wrench to get a snug fitment. Measuring six inches in length, the extension will not extend past a 20-inch barrel on a traditional four-round capacity shotgun tube.
The tube is machined to accept standard barrel clamps to allow for more support and provide the option of a sling attachment point. A short Picatinny rail can also be added to the clamp for mounting a tactical light or other preferred accessories. While built to work with the factory follower, aftermarket upgrades also work. Tested brands of clamps and followers include Vang Comp, Nordic Components, and Wilson Combat.
All products from XS Sights are covered by their “No Questions Asked Lifetime Warranty.” The MSRP for the XS Sights Plus 2 Magazine Extension is $82.99.
