Can someone please post pics of the end of both the 500 and 590 mag tubes?

I ordered a 590 mag tube but think I received the 500 as the 590 barrel is not fitting on the there at all. What a fine turn of events considering this barrel/mag tube assembly has been on back order since Sept '08.

Thanks! Well hell, that is the right tube, maybe I just have it on backwards.

That was 100% the issue. Who knew you could turn the mag tube around?

All the parts fit together a lot better now!

I still have some work to do to her. The pistol grip is just temporary until I can get the limbsaver pad ground down for my shortened Hogue stock. She will also eventually be outfitted with a light and a front night sight.
