View Full Version : Mossberg 500 Tube Mag Mechanism?

February 9, 2008, 11:42 AM
Opened the tube of my new Mossberg 500 12 guage.

I pulled out what looks like a "wooden" dowel with a couple of rubber rings on it.

I don't know squat about shotguns, but my instinct tells me there could be higher quality part out there.

Anyone know? (I'm new to the forum)-Bruce

Thats the "plug" which reduces the magazine capacity for hunting.

LOL I was thinking the exact same thing before I hucked it in the trash!!

Just keep it out....you don't need it unless your state laws require it for hunting.
