Replacement tube for 12ga Win 1300?

Hey guys. I have searched and searched and SEARCHED for a replacement magazine tube with a higher capacity for my Winchester 1300. It has a 26" barrel, and I'd like to put the highest capacity tube possible on it, just because I have a thing for upgrading gun parts. Keep in mind, I dont want an extension, I want a replacement. the extensions arent very nice looking. I also dont use this gun for any kind of hunting, so I wont be under any capacity restrictions when using it. Anybody know where to find one?

A while back I got tired of looking for an 8 shot tube and had to buy a parts gun to get it. GunBroker might be a source or I have seen parts listed that include the tube at Ebay. Your probably going to need the mag throat(s) as well, which might also be a challenge to find quickly. Ebay had some sets this past month.

at the risk of sounding like I don't know what I'm doing, why wouldnt the existing throat work with the new tube?

Check them for cracks and reuse if your satisfied with the condition. If I had an older s/g with many rounds down the pipe I would replace since the s/g is apart.

add: Midwest has the one piece throat in stock if you need it. It's either a one piece or a two piece. They are out of the two piece.
