Default need advice on my savage 320

I recenctly bought a savage 320 for fun and home defense. I am very happy with my purchase seams to work exceptionally. But I've been trying to find a magazine for it and I was wondering do they make magazines for the savage 320 and would I have to do any work on the gun like removing the ammo flap (not sure it's official name) I would greatly appreciate any information that anyone could give me thank you.

If you mean a detachable box magazine, then no it's a tube fed shotgun. But if you're saying you want a new tube magazine, then you can just contact Savage.

There are shotgun speedloaders available for tube fed firearms.

So there isn't a way to change the tube in to a box?

With a major redesign, maybe.

There's no way I've ever heard of to modify a tube fed shotgun into a box magazine acceptable gun. You can get tube extensions for most shotguns but for a detachable box magazine you'd be better off buying a saiga 12 gauge.

I've only heard of it for 870 and they may make one for 500, but definitely not the 320

I'm sure they'll undoubtedly add a flamethrower or two and maybe a grenade launcher.
