Without doing any research, I bought an 18" barrel for my standard win 1300 that had a 28" barrel on it. I found out that the magazine tube needed to be longer for the short barrel to fit, looks like the magazine tube is pressed in and not an easy fix. Will a 2 shot extension fix my problem?

Just my quick thoughts: The Win 1300 Defender can still be found on Guns America, Gunbroker etc for a reasonable price. I think rather than put a whole lot of work in changing out the 28" barrel, I would just look for a Defender. They are great old shotguns - possibly, along with the 870, one of the finest defense pumps ever made. It wouldn't hurt to have 2 if yur budget can stand it. :D
Good luck

nope, extension won't help. You need a 8 shot tube.
Gun Parts Corp has them from time to time, but currently show none in stock.

The magazine tube is easy to remove with the proper tools.

The other option would be to relocate the barrel lug, do that frequently on AOW builds

Hi-temp silversolder. Just scribe the centerline on the barrel and move the lug back/forward as needed.

To remove, do I just heat up the lug until the silversolder melts?

Yup, apply heat to the lug until it comes off.

Thanks, I'm gonna give it a try, hey can you give me an idea about the flux and so forth, I have some silversolder, just not sure about the temp, do you use a oxygen/acetylene torch with a small brazing tip? Thanks for any info you can give.

If you haven't done this before then take it to a gunsmith, this isn't a good project to cut your teeth on, its pretty easy to warp a barrel.

or not get a good solder joint and the barrel blows off of the gun when you shoot it.
