    Waiting to hear back from mossberg, but Im having a hell of a time getting two new extractor pins and a new firing pin. No body in Canada stocks parts and no body in the states seems to ship out of country. Any ideas? Besides buy another one which I already did...

    Have you tried Numrich/Gun parts corporation? I see they have the pins and they say on their website they ship those parts to Canada.

    Hey thanks that looks like a possible solution. Currently I was able to reassemble the bolt with some stuff I had lying around. However I have now found that the I ruined this mag tube when I tried to remove it. I dont think this one can be removed. I put some very slight crimps in the middle of the tube and it won't hold more than 2 shells now. At this point I think this unit is done. I may be able to get it working properly again, but I won't be able to trust it. Live and learn I guess.

    Use a hair drier or shop heat gun to loosen the lock-tite or whatever they use to install the mag tube. I did that on my 500 and it unscrewed by hand with no problems. You don't need to get it smoking hot and I used my shop heat gun and just get it warmer than you care to touch it with your bare hand, I suspect a hair drier on high heat would do the job. Can you straighten the tube out by pushing a proper diameter wooden dowel or piece of pipe thru it?

    I gotta say i have tried absolutely everything to get this off including a heat gun and a torch. I have an automotive shop so Ive had some pretty serious force and tools on this thing trying to get it off. If somehow I get it off I will try to true the tube like you said.

    I thought I may have read at somepoint that the long barrel 88's it can be removed and the short barrels it can not. But I can't back that up at all.

    I read someplace that they may have used two or more forms of lock tite on those tubes at the factory, one you have to get hot to remove and the other get it REALLY hot to remove. Just a tip, when you reassemble it don't use any lock tite at all, it can't go anyplace anyway and will be easier to remove in the future if need be.
