    Wondering if there is a way to either remove the space in the lower barrel of my rem. 870 exp. pump .410 bore. realized that i can only fit 2 extra shots, and the barrel could fit 4, with room to spare. so, any information would be nice, please nothing illegal, or anything that requires jury rigging my gun, just need some information. pretty amateur at this. thanks in advance - steven meads

    In most pumps it's a wooden dowel with the magazine spring wrapped around it. Remove the magazine nut, remove the spring and the dowel, unwind the spring from around the dowel and re-install the spring.

    Remove the magazine cap. You should see a magazine spring retainer
    similar to the one shown in the picture below. Pry out the retainer by
    inserting a screwdriver in the slot and "rocking" it out. The
    retainer is held in by friction. Hold a rag over it while you are working
    or it will fly away to never be seen again, unless of course it is embedded in
    your eye. The should be a green plastic rod, commonly referred to as a
    plug, remove the plug and reassemble.

    And if you go hunting, you need to replace the dowel, or you will get a ticket. Jim

    Jim, plugs are for migratory birds only in most places.
