View Full Version : adding extended mag on 870

Hi Folks,

If I opt to add the tac star extended mag on an 870, is it possible to convert it back to it's original set up for hunting (meeting the 3 load max.) My guess is no, as you pretty much need to drill the dimples out of the magazine tube...am I correct? And, If this is right, do they obviously sell extended mag plugs to meet the hunting regulations on shot capacity. Thanks in advance folks.

Yes, you can easily convert it back to the normal mag tube.

All you do is:

Remove extension

Remove spring and follower

Replace original length spring and follower

Add plug, if required

Put original mag cap on.

---------------------------------------- That's it

I know of no plugs for an extended tube, but you could make one up rather easily with a piece of dowell.

Brownells sells an extended plug that you can trim to whatever length you want.
