I can get 5 of the 2 3/4 shells in my magazine tube as well. I think it only holds 4 of the 3 inch though.

5+1 Really Ric? In a regular model 870 magazine tube!? I'm thinkin' not. People seem to struggle to get a 4th 3" shell in the tube and that's supposed to fit. LOL

I would have to pull the plug and check, I could be wrong. My plug is set for 3" I can't have more than one shot in my gun at the range I go to. So I never had the plug out except after I cleaned it. When I first got it a few years ago. Either I had my whole box of slugs in their or that box was never full. I know I didn't have to struggle with my last shell though. And let me know about 2 3/4

I personally think when they sell you a 500 they should mention the dowel, they did not mention it to me and the last 500 I bought never had one... so it was a bit of confusion when I got mine

I remember being in a local gun shop and a brother with his underwear half out. Told the owner " It only holds 2 rounds, this thing don't work".
The owner said "Did you read the manual first".
The brother said No.
The owner snatched the pistol grip mossberg from him and said, "then you don't deserve to own a gun".
I laughed my a** off.

That's scarry. I never read one... But when I did read it, it told me nothing I didn't know already. my 870 never had a plug. But I had to cut mine.

My 500 came with the plug installed. I remember hearing it

rattling about, but it was easy to remove.
