I am not familiar with the correct name for the tube that holds the shell on my Mossberg 500 Defender, but it seem that it needs changing.**Has anyone done this before?**

I just wrote a email to Mossberg and hope to get a response soon.**But hoping someone in the board could give me some useful information.

I keep it with 6 shell while at home next to my bed and I purchased it used.**When I cycle the 6 rounds thru the shotgun the last round doesn't seem to have enough spring action to chamber it.**So I have to wiggle the shotgun a little and help the round chamber itself.**

I haven't done enough research to know if this is doable or not?**If anyone has any information, it would greatly be appreciated.**If not, more of a reason to purchase another one.

Sounds like a weak mag spring? Is the tube damaged? The Mossy tubes screw into the reciever. Field strip, and with some minor force, the tube should screw loose, though you may need a soft jawwed vise and a strap wrench.

Tube is not damage, but the spring seem to need changing. I'll try to see if I can loosen the tube myself, hopefully I don't need vise grips since I don't want to scrat it. Hopefully the local gunsmith has this tool.

A strap wrench should be available at any local auto parts store.

I think this (http://www.e-gunparts.com/product.asp?chrProductSKU=800100-02B) is all you need.

Very true, if the tube is undamaged, there is certainly no need to remove it. Pop out the spring retainer and replace the spring.
