Maverick 88 Pump Action Mag Tubes/Springs

Morgan

.22LR
Maybe because I have a Maverick they didn't use any Loctite. When putting in a new mag follower, I was able to twist it off with no effort, did add blue Loctite when I reinserted lt in the frame.

Re: 8 round tube only hold 7 2 3/4 shells?

Got it, thanks oli. I love this gun in so many ways. You'd have a hard time believing that I bought it as a replacement when I sold all of my Saigas.
Not me. This gun is super high value gun to have.

I realize this is an old post, but I noticed mine has that same gap when I reinstalled the barrel. I can’t get the barrel in any further nor can I tighten the mag tube cap any more so as to close the gap. How do I fix that?

I did a google search, and think I found the answer. According to these other sources, the gap appears to be normal:
