Mag Extension for Spartan SPR453?

I posted this on Biakal/Spartan but no responses yet so I thought I would try here.

Do you know if anyone makes a mag extension for Remington Spartan SPR453 or Baikal MP153?

Or if a mag extension for another shotgun would fit?

My last resort is to cut the exhisting cap and weld a tube on it and get a longer spring from Wolf Springs. Man it seems like alot of work to get a mag extension. However I wanted a gas operated autoloader and not a recoil operated autoloader.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

You might want to read up in the benelli forums about hi capacity (more than 5+1 or thereabouts) foreign made shotguns. you can't have it..even with a pump and no pistol grip.
922(r) covers non-semi-auto weapons as well? Are you certain about that?

The legality of extended mag tubes on foreign made autoloaders is questionable.
As I understand it (someone correct me if I'm wrong), 922(r) is essentially the 1994 AWB, except it only applies to imported firearms and it can be circumvented by putting enough American-made parts in your weapon. If that's the case, then a semi-auto with a fixed stock, fixed magazine and a non-protruding pistol grip could legally have whatever magazine capacity you saw fit to attach to it.

you could buy a mossberg or remington autoloader with a broomstick sized extended mag and its fine.
There is another 'gotcha' in there having to do with the Secretary of State being able to declare any firearm with a bore over .50 caliber an NFA 'destructive device' as long as it was not considered 'suitable for sporting purposes' (the case of the USAS-12 and the Striker shotgun would be an example of this). That, however, is extremely unlikely to apply to individual weapons modified by the end-user, but only come up if a manufacturer were to produce such a weapon.

OOPs! Sorry, I forgot to say my tactical skeet gun is a Remington 11-87. What I wondering about, was the the Sec of State thing. Where a Mossy or Rem could be illegal.
It could be, but it's quite unlikely that your particular firearm will be singled out for that. That particular route of prohibition is only going to come into play against entire models of firearms, not any one weapon.
