    Just so happens I got a plug sitting here out of an 870 Remmy. As I recall it's similar to what I've pulled out of Mossies........

    End cap (butts up against the mag tube end plug) is 11/16+ wide, 3/8 thick. Overall length is 5 5/8", with the cross-shaped shaft being 15/32+ diameter.

    If you make one out of a length of dowel, be sure to bevel the ends. I had the factory plug (a length of dowel) get caught in the mag spring and turn my 500 into a single shot. Fortunately, this happened when the turkey was already flopping on the ground, but it could have been quite inconvenient.
