Jerry ..... you do an excellent job of 'floating' your subject(s). Are you aware of a tutorial that would help me to do the same ?
Any help would be appreciated ! :-)

(is this specific photo, it appears that you have a support piece that attaches to the magazine. Is that correct ?)

Thank you, much appreciated. You might look for "light table photography" on YouTube ... although there isn't a lot there. I have a room set up as a mini-studio, with a light table and soft-boxes for the strobes. This provides a white background for the images with no shadows. A light box, or light table, is the only way I've found to adequately shoot products with no background at all. Depending upon the size product you are shooting, the tables and boxes start very inexpensively.

For certain "products" I replace the white background with the blue shown above - post processing using layers in PS. It just seems to make the darker items "pop".

The support piece you mention is a product from MagPul Industries called a MagPod. It replaces the normal base pad on their Gen-2 magazines, and (in theory) could be used as a make-shift bi-pod when shooting prone. I like it because it holds the firearm upright for photographs.
