Magazine Capacity

835® Models: Total ammunition capacity (including one in the chamber) is six (6) 2-3/4" or 3" or five (5) 3-1/2" shells.

500® Models: Total ammunition capacity (including one in the chamber) is six (6) 2-3/4" shells. Depending upon ammunition tolerance variations, total capacity may be reduced by one round when using 3" shells.

590® Models: Total ammunition capacity (including one in the chamber) is nine (9) 2-3/4" or six (6) 3" shells.

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

835® Model: To remove the dowel, first remove the barrel. Point the gun 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.

500® Bantam Model: This Model is supplied as a single shot. An extra long wooden dowel blocks magazine loading. After proper firearm training the dowel can be cut to 9" to comply with appropriate laws.

500® Model: To remove the dowel, first remove the barrel. Point gun 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.
