does anyone know the correct way to remove the pin holding the magazine plug in on the top of the tube? is it removed from the end sticking out or the end recessed? what is the best way to remove the plug without splitting the tube? 

thanks Confused

I just punched it out from short side, and pulled it the rest of the way out and spring and end cap shot out across the room, so it was not a tight fit on my rifle.

You want to punch it out pushing the long side through the tube. The short side is somewhat peened and ground to fit the contour of the tube. After you drive the pin out leave your punch in place with your hand over the magazine plug. Then slide the punch out and if the plug is loose it will end up in your hand instead of who knows where. If the plug is tight simply twist it back and forth by hand to loosen it.

I’ve wondered that too. Mine is well fitted on the short side that the pin looked like it entered into the mag tube but there was no way to go through the tube. Lucky i’ve never had to mess with it.
