    Ordered a Scattergun +2 for my 870. I have since been reading a lot about needing a barrel clamp... although the Wilson shotguns aren't pictured with a clamp. What's the story? Thanks!

    This is not complicated to answer.

    1. If the extension is made by a good and reputable company such as Scattergun, you do not need a clamp to hold it in place. You wouldn't be buying *****ty parts in the first place so it is not needed.

    2. If you need the real estate to put on a light and such then a combo clamp/mount from someone such as Mesa Tactical has a place but whatever you do, keep it simple and keep crap off of your gun unless it is purpose necessary. A clamp does not fall into that category unless you buy a *****ty one. Scatterguns and Vang are couple of the good comapnies, among others.

    That's all you need to know right there.

    To me, an extended magazine just doesn't "look right" without a mag/barrel clamp.
