George Stringer, down on the Smithy Forum here, makes up or has access to some of these. Check there first, one correspondent of mine did this and was pleased with the result.

I've seen some all steel 20ga 8 rnd extensions on Ebay and Auctionarms. Claimed they were Choate manufactured.

http://www.tanksrifleshop.com/ lists an Choate extension for the Rem 1100 LT 20ga, which may fit the 870. It's worth checking out.

Joseph, I do make mag extensions for the 20 ga. They're made from steel and finished to match your gun finish. Drop me an e-mail and I'll be happy to send you the details. George
