New to the forum and I have a question. I'm working on rebluing a Remington Model 11 Sportsman model. I need to either remove the magazine tube or remove the plug that is in the tube to get the spring and follower out. For clarification the sportsman is the three shot version of the model 11 and has a solid plug that has an offset threaded hole that the forend attaches to. it does not have a traditional magazine cap with the steel magazine spring retainer that can be pried out.
