Actually no. I wasn't sure because it did not say to cut the spring so I called and the lady said they come shipped at the proper length. I left it and got my extra 2 shells. However I did not use the included follower.

Just ordered some new toys for my 870.

I was originally going to get the Tacstar side saddle because the Mesa $$$ was too much... until now.

I read A LOT of reviews on both and opted for the Mesa. Soooo to keep my order within budget I dropped the light mount that I wanted (already have a light mounted and will replace the mount when I upgrade the light.)

So my 870 is about to receive:

-Magpul SGA Rem 870 Stock, Black

-Magpul MOE Rem 870 Forend, Black

-Mesa Tactical Sureshell 12-Gauge Shotshell Ammunition Carrier
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003NH ... mblogab-20

Will post pics and reviews of parts when they arrive. :D

Just placed an order on Brownells for the Non-MIM Extractor and the Vang Comp Stainless Steel Follower. I was going to get a bigger safety but the on second thought I realized that I personally have absolutely no problem whatsoever finding my safety. Even during pressure drills so why spend the $20 when the safety I already have is just fine. I am excited to see if the Non-MIM extractor fixes my little ejection issues. :D
