    I just bought on a 20 inch 12 gauge and the magazine goes to the end of the barrel. I assumed it held 8 shells total but it only hold 4 total and 1 in the chamber. I'm wondering if there is a plug in the magazine or this is standard with mine. I'm looking for a take down method on youtube i can't find one that takes the magazine down though. Any help is great thanks.

    Take the cap off the mag tube. Turn the gun so that the muzzle is facing the ground. Shake vigorously and a plug should fall out.

    Yeah it must have a plug. I have the 500 with the 20 inch barrel and the tube goes all the way to the end. It holds 7 + 1

    Yea that's what I thought and from the other posts on forums there is a wooden dowel or plug blocking it. I have to shake it to get it out they say.

    It's a dowel with 2 o-rings, so it won't fully fall out. It will slide partially out once you shake it, and you'll be able to pull it out.

    if it doesn't shake out just feed shells into the tube and it will push it out once you'[ve removed the cap
