If its the spring that came with the extention---DO NOT CUT IT-----just stuff it all in there.

If you are looking for 20ga specific stuff---contact Tanks Rifle shop Fremont NE or Wolff Gunsprings---or maybe Midway or Brownells.

This requires some cut-and-try, but a good rule of thumb is the spring should be 6-10" longer than the full length of the magazine tube.
