Default 590 5 shot mag tube on Mossberg 500

Do any of you all know whether or not a regular 590 not 590a1 5 shot mag tube will work on a 500 action?

I'm thinking it will but I'm not sure!

If it's an open front mag tube, you will need a 590 type barrel, but yes, the receiver will accept the 590 tube. The receivers are the same for the 500 & 590, it's in the barrel/magazine tubes that they are really any different. I believe some "590" marked guns have had standard closed front magazine tubes and 500 type barrels so I'd double check, just in case.

Whatís this for?

Iíve toyed with the idea of turning a 590 into an upland bird gun. The only 2 options are to take an 835 barrel and move the mag tube anchor? to the proper length that the mag tube cap will cinch down on it

Or remove the mag tube and barrel completely and replace with a different mag tube and barrel from another gun which is more work than itís worth unless you have a spare mossberg thatís garbage for anything other than parts.

Any part replacing you plan to do between a 590 and any other mossber is essentially useless in that it is gonna be cheaper and easier to just buy a second gun.

590 and 835 is the same style mag tube barrel attachment cap, 500 series use different mag tube cap

Never mind I answered my own question.

Both the heavy wall 18.5" barrel and and mag tube off my 590a1 were a perfect fit on my 500. So I've got some parts ordered to make this 500 a unique gun here soon!
