    Hello,

    I have just recently purchased the Remington 870 Express 12 gauge.

    Wanted to know if there is an extension tube for additional shots?? I have attached a snap of the shotgun.

    Also, any recommendations regarding what ammo to consider for home defense and range? I am not going to be doing much of hunting. :D

    Thanks,

    Midway Finland has Choate, DPMS, Nordic and Remington mag tube extensions, so I'd imagine Midway USA has them also.

    You are going to have to remove the dimples in the mag tube that holds the spring and mag cap retainer - abortion that it is. Some bigwig's son must have come up with that. The old metal retainer and detent retained cap was 200% better.
