870 magazine Tube Off Center?

I have a Remington Police Magnum. Last night I noticed that the mag tube it off center of the barrel. This was especially noticeable with the Wilson extension in place.

Looking at the bottom of the gun, the tube is slightly, though clearly to the left of the barrel.

As the barrel tapers from the receiver, I can not use a level to mark a change in cant, so I can not tell for certain if the tube is off center or canted.

Has anyone else noticed this, or is mine an aberration in need of factory service?

I would have a gunsmith check it out. Make sure it indeed is not on straight.

Did you buy it new or as a PD turn in? Department guns sometimes get abused.

If new it should go back to Remington.
