On the end of the magazine tube there is a threaded-on cap. Remove this cap. You will now find a "spring plug" inside the front end of the magazine tube. Carefully pry this spring plug out of the magazine tube. Put a pair of safety glasses in the proper location on your face because once you get this spring cap close to the end of the magazine tube the magazine follwer spring will push it out of the mag. tube faster than you can say"Oh sh.. crap". Once this spring cap is out you can pull the magazine spring out if it already hasn't landed in the living room. You can now insert or remove a cartridge number restricting plug. Next you'll need to push the extended magazine spring back into the magazine tube and re-install the spring end cap. To get the spring plug in flush with the front edge of the magazine tube, tap it into place with a plastic screwdriver handle to prevent distorting the thin walls of the mag. tube. Replace the screw-on end cap and that's it.
