    I would like to use my 1187 for some pratical rifle competition.
    But I need to be able to use 5 -6 shells

    Any one have a recommnedation on the best option to extend the existing magazine up to 5-6 shells ( May be I am saying 4+1 or 5+1)

    Just take the plug out and use 2 3/4" shells.

    Thanks looked on line and found a You tube on it.

    To add an extension (~ $60)- you have the cost of the extension and spring + You have to flatten the dimples - which takes a tool that cost $60. Then a magazine extension support.
    I was almost thinking it was cheaper just to buy a different gun that to go theough that process.
