    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.

    Armstec makes one that can load 4 at a time.

    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 Will at Red Jacket can do it.

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

    not that i know of. i see a lot of work for no real advantage. tube mags on firearms have been working quite well for quite a number of years now. as long as the tube is kept clean and the spring has the proper tension, they work great.

    you're welcome. something i learned a long time ago, was that almost anything was possible if you had the money and time to devote to it.
