    Default Winchester 1200 Magazine Tube for 28" barrel?

    Recently picked up a 28" vent-rib barrel for my Win 1200 Defender, which previously had an 18" barrel.

    Unfortunately, the 5 shot tube extends out too far, so that the mag-tube cap doesn't keep the barrel on.

    Is there something I can purchase that would allow this barrel to be used with the longer tube?

    Otherwise, what is the appropriate capacity magazine tube for a Winchester 1200/1300 with a 28" barrel?

    *crickets* ...thanks guys

    Just in the event this gets indexed by Google from someone else searching for a similar answer:

    I did come up with a solution.

    I purchased a 12 inch piece of 6061 T6 aluminum pipe on Amazon for $8
    I then cut it down to proper length with a hand-saw, sanded down the burrs, spray-painted flat black, and then lined the inside with some fabric to protect the bluing on the mag-tube underneath.

    This then slides over-top of the magazine tube- and serves as a long washer/spacer of sorts.

    The barrel is now nice, tight and secure- and it doesn't look too awful.

    This was the tube I purchased from Amazon- the inside/outside diameters are almost perfect.

    My 1300 uses a different style of mag extension with a 22" barrel but it also works with the stock 28" walking stick barrel. I'm not certain what manufacturer made this extension. The 22" barrel with choke tubes was a Winchester (USRA) accessory barrel and mounts the same way as the 28" barrel.

    EDIT: this magazine tube on my 1300 was made by Tac Star a Lyman company. It's no longer made but there is one on eBay.
