How extended?
I just bought one for my old man for his 500. His shotty came with a 2+1 tube, so I bought a 6+1 to be the same as my 870.
I just ordered it from my normal gun shop (dunno about internet orders).

thanks for the reply

the barrel is 28", so I would like at least an 8 shot.

bedouin: With the Mossberg design, you can't really extend an existing mag; you'd have to buy a new tube (I think 7 is the highest capacity for Mossys except the 590). Unfortunately you'd also need a barrel to fit the tube (take a look at the position of the magazine screw, you'll see what I mean). I think 20" might be the only barrel length for the 7-shot tube, at least it's the only one I've seen. On the other hand, if you can't kill it with 5+1 shots, it might be time to switch to an assault rifle 8)

bobbfwed: I didn't think Mossberg made 2-shot tubes, are you sure your Pops doesn't have a 5-shot tube with a plug installed? If so you might have yourself a spare mag tube, no problem there :D

Honestly, I have no idea. I bought the shotty for him for Christmas. I saw it for about 5 seconds in its dismantled form, so I was estimating, but the tube looked very short. When I saw how short it was, I asked the guy to order a 6+1.
