1300 mag tube removal

Post by bugman » Sun Dec 17, 2017 9:16 pm

Has anyone here ever removed the magazine tube from a Winchester 1300.

I think I have the procedure figured out, just wondering how soul crushingly hard it really is

yep
Already read that one.

Found another one that made it a little simpler
Use a piece of heavy black pipe and use it as a slide hammer against the end cap after you have driven it into the reciever to remove the lock ring

I was just wondering if anyone has actually ever done it

Have you checked the youtube videos yet?
That's the first place I look for this kind of stuff.
It seems no matter the subject someone has done it and posted a how to video there.

I've done it to remove the shell release on an old 140....similar stupid design

I will never do it again and have passed on several others job over the last couple of years....

I believe the receivers are aluminum if I remember correctly so there is no need to remove the tube for bluing..... you couldn't use cerakote because that plastic would probably melt in the oven but you could DuraCoat it if you're looking to refinish the receiver
In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

Converting it from a five shot barrel to a 7 (8) which means also switching out the mag tube

I got the barrel, trigger group, pistol grip, slide assembly, and magazine tube for about $20 more than the cost of the extension.

I have done magazine switches on Mossbergs a couple of times and figured it would be close to the same with the Winchester,, oops
