With mine you unscrew the knurled(or whatever) round end cap at the end of the magazine tube. At that point you will likely be looking a protruding post with a flat head cut in the top. Uncrew that with a flat head screwdriver and you should be all set. You may have to depress a couple small spring loaded detents that should be visible in order to unscrew this part. The first time it is a PITA but all in all not too tough.

Let me know if you want me to take the time to post pictures of me doing it. I would be happy to do so but am kinda lazy at the moment and also have a few beers, so it is probably best I don't play with the 12 gauges at the moment.
