MAGAZINE TUBE TAKEDOWN MAGAZINE CAP (835/590)

If your 590/835 shotgun is equipped with a magazine spring retainer, prior to putting on the magazine cap, assemble the magazine spring retainer over the protruding magazine spring. Push the retainer downward inside magazine tube so that the spring retainer is flush with the magazine tube end.

CAUTION: The magazine spring exerts pressure on the retainer. Use caution when disassembling.

To disassemble: Pry up at various points around the small hole in the center of the magazine spring retainer. Cup hand over retainer and magazine so as to keep spring and retainer confined. Use caution not to bend or distort the magazine tube end and or threads.

A little space between the magazine tube and the takedown mount is normal.

WARNING (all models): Check to be certain that the barrel is fully seated into the receiver by looking through the ejection port. The barrel extension must rest firmly against the corresponding cut in the top of the receiver as shown in Figure 4.

To comply with U.S. migratory bird laws, all five and six shot models are shipped with a wooden dowel inserted in the magazine tube which limits magazine capacity to two (2) shells.

To remove the dowel, first remove the barrel. Point the shotgun downward and shake it back and forth lightly until the dowel falls out.

To change back to a 2-shot magazine capacity insert the dowel through the center of the magazine spring so that it is positioned inside the coils of the spring.

This Model is supplied as a single shot. An extra long wooden dowel blocks magazine loading. After proper firearm training the dowel can be removed to cut to 9" to comply with appropriate laws. See below for removal instructions.

To remove the dowel, first remove the barrel. Point shotgun downward and shake it back and forth lightly until the dowel protrudes from the takedown screw hole in the end of the magazine tube. A rubber "O" ring on the dowel prevents it from falling out accidentally. Grasp the dowel and pull it completely out.
