If you ordered your Sidewinder from us, wait until your catalog comes with your kit before making this decision. If you ordered it from a dealer, then check out our web site for details on the COPstock Folder and SpecOps Stocks.

I ordered the sidwinder kit and a extra drum from cabelas. After

looking at the SpecOps stock i decided im going to save for it

instead of getting the ati.

When i was cleaning my Moss 500 earlier i decided to go

ahead and try to get the mag tube off. Guess what, it wont

break loose any ideas or suggestions on how to get it off?

P.S. My extra drum came in today but my kit isn't here yet!

There have been a few posts on this, you should be able to find the threads. From what I can remember:

Knoxx recommends using a hair dryer to heat up the receiver.
Mine was tough, I heated the receiver as well as putting medical tape and leather around the muzzle end of the mag tube (the barrel attachment hardware acts as a reinforcement so you don't risk crushing the mag tube) and using a vice grips.

A tech from Knoxx said their best technique is two folks with clean dry hands.

Hope this helps,

Kdolloff,
Sorry, forgot to mention to use a strap wrench, it didn't work for me but it is the tool that, if I remember correctly, the knoxx instructions recommended using- so try that first in combination with heating the receiver.

Another subject, when you do get the kit and install it, be sure to follow the reassembly instructions carefully. There is a part in the receiver that you DO NOT reinstall. Folks experienced in reassembling their shotguns tend to miss this step and reinstall all the parts.

Thanks for the advice. I hope the kit comes in tommorrow because I don't think UPS delivers on turkey day.

Dont forget to remove the right hand side cartridge stop and leave it out when you put the sidewinder kit together.
Can you please elaborate ... does it say this in the instructions ?

I had the same problem ... Mossberg uses locktite on the mag tube and I tried the strap wrench ... it didn't work. I took it to a gunsmith and he took it off for $20.

Just out of curiosity, how did you get the tube off? Could help others in the future as this topic does come up occasionally.

Honestly i just took some folded towles and set them on the

floor, then i grabed the mag tube and wacked the reciever into

the towles so that it would turn it counter clockwise! I dont

know if i would recomend it to someone else or not but it

worked for me. :lol:
