    All right all Mossberg SA-20 members... I love my new SA-20!!!
    It works great and seems to be very reliable. How does one get around having to press the release button in order to load shells into the tube? This is the only feature that I find bothersome on the gun. I have never seen this before on a shotgun. I would like to bypass/disable this feature. Anyone with any success doing so, please share with me how you went about doing this. Otherwise it is a great gun. Incidentally, my Mossberg SA-12 does not do this when you load the tube.

    I would check the manufacture date of the gun. I have an SA-20 a little over 1 year and I do not have to push the button. I can just load the magazine provided the action is closed.
    I was under the impression that button issue was fixed in the newer models but I do not know when.

    Anyone found a fix for this ?
    I just acquired a 1st gen SA-20 and would like to reverse this "feature"
