Hey all I recently purchased a Benelli Nova 20 gauge. I bought it for shooting trap and home defense. I never plan on hunting with it so I'd like to go ahead and remove the magazine tube to get added capacity. I found a nice video about the actual removal process but there really isn't a whole lot of information regarding this and I have a few questions. 1) Will this in any way harm my shotgun or put added strain on my spring? 2) In the video after removing the plug the guy caps the end of the tube with a nickel for the spring to rest against. 3) will keeping it loaded to capacity damage it? I'm mostly concerned about how the spring will rest after removing the tube and while I can't really see anything wrong with the nickel idea, it just doesn't seem right. I'd really appreciate any help or alternative ideas for having the spring rest against the cap. Here is a link to the video I found How to Remove Benelli Nova Magazine Plug - YouTube Thanks! Forgot to mention I purchased through the classified forum here a NWFA. Nearly new for $250 and it functioned flawlessly both times I've taken it out since!
