    When you fire it, the barrel and the bolt move rearward together in the reciever. The barrel goes forward first and the empty is ejected. Then the bolt goes forward and brings the next shell up into the chamber.

    There are spacers in the fore end that regulate the travel of the barrel for light and heavy shells. They need to be installed correctly per the manual for the gun to operate correctly and prevent damage.

    ETA - Put the butt of the gun on the floor and push down on the barrel - you'll see how it works

    Thank you Cliff58. It is super long. It is going to hold 9-10 shells in the magazine tube.

    I really wish I could fabricate a long wood stock to help protect the monster mag tube.

    Don’t forget to check the buffer pad inside the back of the reciever on the Model 11’s. Most likely, they need replaced.

    Yes that is what I want. I am thinking of buying two forends and glueing them together.

    Growing up I only knew Remington and Mossberg shotguns. But I’m loving those Browning 5s.

    I have an old wore out Model 11 I have tried to do this to, but the insides are just to wore down from what I am told. The gun just won't run reliably anymore. Not sure if anything can be done for it.
