    Hey Kurt, I found this at Wilson Combat, It's for a Remington 870, but they could probably tell you where to get one for yours

    I'm pretty certain TacStar does. The last time I looked, they were a Lyman company.

    FWIW, I have one of their mag extentions for a Remington 870, and I have been very satisfied with it.

    Good luck, and good shooting...stay safe!

    Kurt, if your barrel retaining nut screws into the magazine endcap, you can't get an extension, since the tube is one piece, dead-ended. IIRC, some of the newer 590s have a magazine cap, ala Remington, but I believe its certain designations, not "all" 590s. Good luck!

    Try looking on ebay for an 8 shot magazine tube and 20 inch barrel. AFAIK that is the only way to add capacity to the 500. Aside from the sidewinder kit.

    Thanks guys, but it appears that I am out of luck. My 500 is exactly as Rob72 described. Oh well, it was worth a shot.

    I believe that would be the sidewinder kit that LMarshall73 was talking about.

    Nope

    Can't put a mag extension on a Mossberg unless you're a machinist w/ a vision! Gotta' get it from Mossberg extended already!

    NO!!! A mag tube extension WILL NOT WORK! The extensions that you're going to bring up with that Ebay search will all be identical to the one we make (some may be milled aluminum, some may be glass-filled nylon), and DO NOT FIT Mossbergs because they can't!!! Don't get stuck with something you can't use!!

    Good point, Rob72. We work VERY closely with Mossberg, so my head is NOT too far up my butt when I'm spouting all this 'MOSSYS CAN'T TAKE MAG TUBE EXTENSIONS' mishmash.

    The models Mossberg has issued with an extension come from the factory that way and still have a retaining nut that impedes further modification. Our tubes work on Remington and Winchester, but if someone has a bigger mag tube on a Mossberg, it is a custom job and was probably a hell of a lot of work.

    Yep, no tube extensions for the 500 series unless it is the factory version with barrel.

    5+1 is all I get in mine. If I can end something in the 6 I have on hand (no shell-holders as of yet and maybe not ever), then I am transitioning and hoping for the best!

    What about the 835? I don't see anything on mine that would prevent it, and IIRC, removing the spring retainer is described in the manual as "if it doesn't come out on its own when you removed the cap, you'll need to ____." The hard part would be finding one that would match up even with the length of that 28" barrel.

    Now how many 3.5" loads would that hold?

    Nononononononoooooooo!!!!

    The brackets won't allow you to use a screw-in mag tube extension on a Mossberg. Period. NO Mossberg. That is why NOBODY MAKES ONE FOR A MOSSBERG! If someone tried to sell you one, they're ripping you off!

    Sorry guys if I'm getting a little testy over this one.

    I'll bail on the thread by saying that if you wanna' waste your money, go buy a mag tube extension for your Mossberg, fit it and then call me up to tell me what an idiot I am (I have been known to make mistakes, but on this one, I'm right).
