    Same goes for scopes.
    Notorious for scopes, and a good reason for only buying new in the box, unless you know where/who it's coming from, and can inspect it before hand.

    Too many times, we humans think that tight is ok, but tighter is better. When you are dealing with small hardware, that is spec'd to be tightened in inch-pounds, you would be surprised to see how far you go over the recommended spec without using a torque driver.

    Magazine tubes on all shotguns are flimsy pieces of scrap metal. They get dented or bent out of shape fairly easily.

    They really should simplify things like that for strong idiots such as myself.

    Not that bad. But squeezed enough that the follower couldn’t pass that part of the tube and when it got shoved down there with Ammo, it wouldn’t come back up. I’ll run a full tube of snap caps tomorrow to make sure no permanent damage was done. But that’s crazy that mounting hardware can do that.

    Sounds like you squeezed/distorted the tube into an oval shape when you tightened your mount hardware.

    Well, this I’ve never seen. Started to take off accessories so I could break the gun down and see what’s up. I have a mount for my flashlight that goes between the barrel and the magazine tube. As soon as I loosened the screws, my follower popped back up to the top. WTF. Apparently the screws were too tight but how the hell do you clamp a magazine tube to the point to it obstructs the follower??? Didn’t even know that was possible.

    Just pry it out, in a circle, a little at a time. Check youtube.

    So, it's just pressed in? That's kind of what the manual says. But it doesn't say how to get it out.

    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 of the magazine tube so that
    the spring retainer is flush with the magazine tube end.

    On my Shockwave (basically the same gun), removing the magazine end cap doesn't allow the spring and follower to come out. There's a magazine spring retainer holding it all in. The manual shows it but doesn't say how to remove it. I've never removed the spring and follower. Why do you want to?

    Tube. I don’t think it’s detachable but I honestly don’t know yet.
    To clarify - they now make shotguns with a detachable box magazine like an AR. I assume it’s not that based on your response. See my post above it’s probably the plastic cap. But send pics when you can
