    It looks to be a Tac Star. On the back of the package it says it is a division of Lyman.

    Just checked both +2rnd extensions, one factory and one Wilson.
    Both hold the same.

    5-3" or 6-2 3/4"
    But they will hold 5-3" and 1-2 3/4".
    Thats what I have in the one beside the bed.
    1-3"00buck in chamber + 1-2 3/4"PD1 + 5-3"00buck
    1 + 1 + 5 = 7
    Hope thats enough.:supergrin:

    I have a question concerning this topic... New 870 tactical with extended mag tube... Shopping for some defense rounds yesterday and mistakenly grabbed a box of "Mini-Buckshot". Wasn't aware that anyone made a 2 1/4" shell? Does anyone know if these are okay to use in the 870 tactical chambered for 2 3/4"-3.00"?

    7 shots in a shotgun is enough to take care of 7 bad guys...
