new to shotguns so i have a few questions.

i just got a heck of a deal on a 870. it is used not much. the owner bought it to just screw around and build them up.

i will post pics tomorrow.

first question is this. the original owner put an ext on the mag, and i hate it. it is plastic and looks like crap. what do i need to buy to make it back to the OEM. again sorry for the stupid newb question...

Just get an endcap and it unscrews....trade caps and springs.....that said, I will have my 870 paid off in the next few weeks and would swap you if you want.

All you need is the stock magazine cap that screws on with a stock mag spring. That's it. Try midwayusa.com. Or, just get a better mag extension. It's good to have options. And it's not a bad thing to add some capacity to the good ole 870.

(aka MrPickles1212) As long as you're paying it forward Brian, I'll take 500 rounds of 9mm ammo. Please send by overnight express. Thx.....Seriously though, didn't know you were going to Germany until Oct. We'll have to hit up the MW2 soon.

get a good mag extension and a clamp with a rail :)

if my 500 would except mag extentions, I'd have one in a heartbeat. I like having a gun I can still take hunting but swap out a barrel and use for defense.

what's an endcap for a Remington anyway...like 20 bucks? get that and a good extension.
