Comparing a couple Mossberg 500 shotguns on their website I noticed two models that seemed to have identical dimensions but have different ammo capacities for 2 3/4" shells. The 20 inch barrel Persuader and 20 inch barrel Mariner with 7+1 and 8+1 rounds respecitvely. Is there some sort of internal differences in the magazine tubes between these variants? Seemed somewhat unusual since both models with 18.5 inch barrels have the same 5+1 capacity.

The 20" models have full-length magazines. The 18.5" models have partial-length magazines.

Yeah but was wondering why the 20 inch models have different capacities when they are externally identical in size.

I have also wondered this. I own a Persuader model.

They have different ends on the tubes.

one has a screw in top, the other has a cap.

Ah so it seems the 20 inch Mariner magazine tube is constructed more like the type used on the 590 models.
