I bought a Mossberg 500 Super Bantam for my granddaughter with no plug installed.  Do I have to remove the magazine tube to insert a new plug? If so, how do I detach it from the receiver? All I see are 4 groove indentations placed 90 degrees from each other at the forward end. Does a special tool fit in these grooves so it can be unscrewed?

I downloaded the manual but there's nothing in it concerning this.

On my Mossberg 500's the screw knob that holds barrel on is where I put in/remove plug which is a dowel cut to length.

I typed to slow and another post beat me.........

Thanks guys. That was too simple for me. Embarassed  I try to complicate everything. 

I've had Remington shot guns with a plug that looked like a huge nail with a thick head that had to fit into the spring.
