    wait what?

    i knew choate made extensions, but they can/will make a +3 extension thats about the same length as most +2s? (ie lines up with 18.5" barrel)

    ???????????????????????????????????

    Choate's 3 shot extension will line up with a 20 1/2 barrel. The two shot will line up with an 18" barrel.

    DS: I understand that those are the standard lengths for just about everyones extensions. I have the Remington +2 that lines up with my 18.5" barrel.

    What confused me was that several people seem to be suggesting that Choate can make the same thing that MAX100 is advertising: a +3 extension that lines up with an 18.5" barrel. (standard +2 length)

    Otherwise I'm more or less wondering WHY noone else makes it. Are there dependability concerns? Springs wear out faster? Maybe I'll just call Choate and discuss it with them.

    edit: hey from LR btw.

    Thats what Im talking about, Glockdude1....

    The MAX100 +3 extension is the same length as the Remington +2 ext, shown right next to it....

    I'm wondering why noone else makes one that length.
     
  10. Your Wondering?? I have been waiting almost six months for a +2 ext for a mossberg 590a1 that nobody but MAX100 makes as well. Now if only I could get my hands on it!! Why doesnt anyone make an ext for these guns I wonder?

    Right. I'm looking for one to fit to length with my 18.5" barrel. I'd seen GlockDude1's photo before and found that to be what I wanted.

    I paid for one, and haven't received it, which is why I started this thread.

    On a side note, I have since had my 870 refinished in Armor Kote.

    Hey back at ya!! Call Fred and ask him. 800-972-6390. I know they use an oversized spring for reliability and positive feeding. They also use a follower of some length. All these things would cut down on space in the tube, but they have been making extensions for 30+YEARS. They know what they are doing.

    I'd run one of these extensions you are trying to buy ALOT before I would trust my life to a shortened spring and a short follower that allowed the spring to potentially bind.

    How long has this guy been making extensions????
     
  15. 6 months!!!!!!????!!!!!

    Ill do that. Curiosity killed the cat you know...

    I agree with this. Particularly based on what kind of answer I get above. But since Im not going to be getting a MAX100 tube, I will likely stick with my stock Rem+2 unless Fred is privy to making one of these shorter +3s...

    I have no idea. I think Ive seen posts by him on old threads on SGW forums that are several years old. Beyond that I cannot say.

    Thanks!

  18. as of today not a word from him in response.....

    given my history with him and the current circumstances, max100 fits my description of a shyster......
     
  19. I have contacted his local Sheriff's office and am waiting for a response. I am going after the mother f'er!
