Yes, the magazine tube is fairly easy to remove on the 500 series. First check for unloaded weapon. Remove barrel and set aside. There is an action slide tube nut on the business end of the forestock that needs to be removed. There is a special spanner made but if you are very careful you can use some common handtools to remove this nut. After that removal the forestock will slide off. At this point just unscrew the magazine tube. Be aware that the spring is under compression and don't lose the shell follower. Assembly is the reverse of disassembly. When screwing the tube back in be careful not to overtighten it as it will easily strip the threads of the magazine tube.HTH.
