if i remember mine from years ago, when i took mine apart to remove the plug, the end of the mag tube is dimpled a little to hold the spring and follower in place. this is on the muzzle end. pull the barrel nut off the mag tube and look and see if there is a dimple in the end of it. remove the dimple and the spring cap, spring and follower should come out. watch out for the spring and parts, because they will try to fly out!
