Can You Install A Longer Mag Tube On An 870?

Post by GreyShark » Mon Nov 17, 2014 6:46 pm

I know there's extensions but are there any one piece magazine tubes for the 870 that hold 6 or 7 rounds? I know they've got a 1 piece 6 shot tube on the WalMart "tactical" model but I can't find it for sale as an individual part anywhere.

Ultimately what I want to put together is a shotgun with 18 inch(or 18.5", whatever) vent rib barrel, screw in choke and single piece 6 or 7 shot magazine tube.

The mag tube on an 870 is silver soldered in place so swapping out the whole tube isn't really an easy proposition. Plus the barrel hanger chingadero has to be in the right place. Just get the extension you want and call it good.

Oh, and with an 18" you'll get 6+1 with it at the same length as the barrel.

Thanks! Seeing as that's the case I think I'll probably use an extension on a slightly longer barrel for 7 shots + vent rib and Rem Choke.
