The Choate Machine and Tool company has released a new shotgun magazine extension tube, named the Night Manager, that doubles as a mounting point for weapon mounted lights and lasers. The installed Night Manager offers an extra two rounds to the shotgun’s capacity. The tube is drilled and tapped to accept Picatinny rail sections for mounting accessories. A sling attachment loop is also included in the kit and is cut to accommodate the end user’s preference on its placement at the 3, 6 or 9 o’clock positions.
Choate explains the construction and indexing capability of the Night Manager below:
The Night Manager is an all steel construction magazine tube extension with an aluminum shroud that is drilled and tapped along the bottom and sides for mounting Picatinny rail sections. Its unique design allows the shroud to rotate to orient the attached Picatinny rails where needed and then uses an AR-15 castle nut to lock it down in the desired location. By mounting accessories on the magazine tube extension it allows use of the full length of the shotgun’s forend, which often can be short on law enforcement models.
The new extension tube is currently being offered for Remington 870, 1100 and 11-87; H&R Pardner pumps and Hawk 982; Mossberg 590, 835, 930, 5500 and 9200 models. The Night Manager is available and has an MSRP of $92.77 and comes with everything needed to install. It includes a 3-slot section of Picatinny rail, fasteners, magazine follower and magazine spring. You can find the Night Manager for purchase on Choate Machine & Tool’s website HERE.
