How do I load my mossberg maverick 88 with more than three shots? Im only able to put two shells into the shotgun after one is ready to be fired.
remove the dowel! To do so first remove the barrel.point the shotgun downward ans shake it back and forth lightly until the dowel falls out.
to change back to a 2-shot magazine capacity insert the dowel throught the center of the magazine spring so that it is positioned inside the coils of the spring.
keep the dowel if you are planning on hunting w/ it. Most states carry heavy fines for hunting with more than 3 shells loaded
Its called a magazine restriction plug. It is placed in you shotgun to make it comply with hunting regulations. If you remove it, you can not legally use your shotgun for hunting. If your use is other than hunting, removal is allowed. There are also magazine extensions for most shotguns allowing increased number of rounds.
A lot of after markets sell tube extensions so you could carry maybe 8 or more rounds
