A quick peek at a few custom mods to get the most out of an Impala 12g Shotgun for the 2020 IPSC Rifle & Shotgun Nationals at Spear Creek, at the base of the Flinders Ranges, South Australia.
For shooters looking for more than the factory-five shot capacity in the newly released SHS Shotgun, we have you covered. Extension Kits and accessories now available.
Each loading gate is hand–fabricated by our gunsmiths at our Adelaide workshop. Its made of aircraft grade aluminium and finished in black Cerakote making it lightweight and hard wearing.
The gate and tube kit is designed to quickly load rounds into the magazine tube for IPSC competition use.
With the rising notoriety of the Adler, Pardus and other 12ga shotguns in Australia, there seems to be more and more variations among the models of shotgun available. Some of these are functional like barrel length but many changes are cosmetic, like if the stock is wood or synthetic material or the colour of the action.
And why not? Everything about you says something about you. Firearms can be very personal and a reflection of identity. In response we have created series of colourful and eye catching shotgun accessories so you can “pimp your 12ga” to suit your style.
For several months our ICEng aftermarket shotgun followers and magazine nuts have been available in red, blue, silver, black and gold. Black is standard and timeless, but the red and blue have been hot selling items.
Its time the popular Ultralite Barrel Clamp and Tactical Barrel Clamp with removable picatinny rail options caught up. This month we are offering a limited run of red and blue Ultralite Barrel Clamps and Tactical Barrel Clamps (with removable picatinny rail).
The finish is slightly darker than the follower and nut, but creates a stunning impact when teamed up together. The red really rolls with the Adler “Rockstar” model (which features an action finished in red). The blue set produces a perfect picture when paired up with the blue Pardus. Either option creates an eye-catching and custom look to the standard wood stock or synthetic stock shotgun (or if you want to go all out, email us about a Cerakote job).
Both barrel clamp styles are designed for use with an ICEng extension kit (there may not be enough tube length to fit it on the factory 5 shot version). The Ultralite is compatible with Adler, Pardus and most 12ga lever action shotguns.
The Tactical Clamp with removable rail is compatible with most shotguns but is better suited to the +3, +5 or +6 extensions. It does not suit most Pardus models.
For some shooters, the factory 5 shot version of the Adler A110 lever-action shotgun does the job. But others have found a need for a larger capacity shotgun. Particularly in primary industries, pest management, hunting or competition such as IPSC.
We manufacture and sell magazine extension kits for the Adler. The kits can increase you capacity by an additional 2 to 6 shots, depending on the size kit you opt for. They are designed as DIY installations and do not require permanent modifications (they are reversible).
How does it work?
We experimented with single-piece tube designs when the Adler was released, but we found the wall of the tube in single piece styles had to be thinned out too much and was at risk of splitting. We stand by our products with a full lifetime warranty, so that was not an option.
The answer was to create a two-piece magazine extension. This keeps the integrity of the extension tubes and gives greater flexibility in changing between magazine capacity sizes quickly and easily. It also gives greater control over the end length so you can tinker until its exactly in line with the end of the barrel.
Installation involves removing the factory mag tube (And putting it somewhere safe), screwing in the extension pieces and reassembling the foreend. Instructions are provided.
To change capacity, remove the clamp and swap over the extension piece for a different size one. Simple as that.
To go back to factory capacity, unscrew the whole kit and screw back in the mag extension. Voila!
ICEng’s +2 and +5 extension tube lengths alongside the Adler A110 28″ model
Which size should I get?
Our kits can increase the capacity by an extra 2, 3, 5 or 6 shots. The +2 extension creates a really nice weight balance, but the +5 can’t be beat if you’re looking for a few extra rounds while hunting.
The +2 style is recommended for 20″ barrel shotguns as its roughly flush with the end of the muzzle.
The +5 style is recommended for 28″ barrel shotguns as it sits roughly flush with the end of the muzzle.
These kits have been popular for hunting and local IPSC competitors looking to increase capacity while remaining under the competition’s overall gun length rule.
Standard kits are finished in a hard-wearing black Cerakote.
Lever action shotguns have been available in Australia since the late 1800s. Gunsmiths have been modifying them since this time, including class-appropriate capacity changes. Some states may have restrictions on capacity or magazine type. Please confirm with your local firearms authority to confirm your state or territory laws.
