Where to buy Remington parts?

I put together a Remington 870 and used a Choate magazine extension. The barrel band/clamp it came with, as you know, is junk. I would like to replace with the factory barrel clamp, however, I can not find a source for one anywhere. Any suggestions? I am about to order a Clark Custom clamp, however, I would much prefer the factory part as it comes with a sling stud. I already have QD swivels, would not like to add on a sling adapter if I could get the remmy part, and frankly, I really don't trust any aftermarket "junk". Thanks.

They are available from Remington Parts Department.

I don't think the Remington factory clamp will work with any extension other than the factory version.
The factory extension has a groove the barrel clamp screw passes through and interlocks with the extension to prevent the clamp from shifting under recoil.

Without the groove in the tube, the factory clamp screw won't fit through.

However, Uncle Mike's does or DID make a close copy of the Remington clamp that will fit most any extension.

Email Uncle Mike's and ask if they still make it. Its not listed on the site, so you'll have to contact them.
Tank's Rifle Shop sells the same clamp:
