Given Γ-rings N1 and N2, a construction similar to the Everett sum of rings to find all possible extensions of N1 by N2 is given. Unlike the case of rings, it is not possible to find for any Γ-ring M an ideal extension that has a unity. Furthermore, contrary to the ring case, a Γ-ring with unity can not be characterized as a Γ-ring which is a direct summand in every extension thereof.
