Which Magazine Tube Extension Kit?

Just bought a Beretta 1301 Tactical and love it so far but I'm wanting to add a +2 mag tube extension. Can't decide which one these to go with though. Any help deciding will be appreciated.

https://www.gggaz.com/beretta-1301-m...extension.html

Anyone have an opinion on which is better and why? I read the GG&G has a steel nut and they claim it "helps eliminate ball detent wear." Not sure of the validity of that but I also don't know what the Nordic Components is made out of.

Also came across this but not sure I like it. If anyone can attest to its quality I'll take that into account.

Definitely Nordic.

Wow, those are not cheap. I bought a nordic about 15 years ago for an 870 and it has been great, but wow prices have gone up.

That's what I was leaning towards, thanks for your input.

I can get the Nordic for $140 with 2 day shipping from DSG Arms with the LE discount. They've never been inexpensive since I've known about them though

I have a Stoeger m3000. I ironically live near MOA precision, which is a small shotgun aftermarket parts manufacturer and gunsmith shop in southern Oregon. They have an excellent reputation but I decided to go with Nordic for my parts (extended tube, follower, and spring) simply because they’re a larger shop with a bigger reputation and footprint. The extension kit from Nordic was Mis-threaded and essentially made the whole kit not work. Their customer service was excellent when it finally kicked in, but it took them about a week to answer. This is reasonable for what is also, I’m assuming, a fairly small shop.

I had already bought replacement parts from MOA, which all went
Together perfect and worked from the jump. I think they’re both good outfits but I felt kinda dumb not doing business with the shop 70 miles away in the first place.

I gifted the replacement parts from Nordic to my buddy, he reports they work fine.

With the caveat that I've known the Choates for about 40 years, I'll point out that Choate Machine & Tool makes one, too. https://www.riflestock.com/store/pro...hot-extension/

ETA: I don't have a Beretta, but I've used their 870 mag extensions for years without any problems.
