Please forgive my ignorance but what are the significant difference between Mossberg's 500, 590, and 835 shotguns?

Could I use a 590 mag tube extension on an 835?

The 590 uses some steel parts that are aluminum on the 500, and the magazine cap reveals an open mag tube, where the 500s is sealed making an extension impossible, as far as I know. The 835 has a 3 1/2" chamber, an overbored barrel, and some internal differences, and also has an "open" magazine tube. I don't know about the mag. tube extensions interchanging. I have a couple 500s and have owned an 835. Good guns.

Slight correction: The 590 has an open-ended magazine tube that allows extensions. The 500 magazine tube doesn't. The 590A1 versions of the 590 have a metal safety, metal trigger group, and a heavy-walled barrel.
