Remington 1100 Plug Issue

I have a Remington 1100 shotgun in 20 gauge that is older than I am (Over 30). I'm planning to use it for various types of bird hunting. Therefore I need a plug for it. This gun originally belonged to my grandfather and had a wooden plug with it when I received it. The wooden plug won't fit inside the end of the magazine tube so I figured it was for a different gun. I ordered a new, plastic plug from midway. When I got the new plug it is the same diameter as the wooden one I have and therefore it won't work either. I don't know much about this gun so there is probably a simple explanation that my simple self cant figure out. I've attached some pictures to serve as visual aid.

Anyone have any insight for me?

I'm thinking of just whittling down the plastic one so it's skinny enough to work but I have to think there is a proper plug somewhere for this gun. The gun is virtually flawless by the way. It probably has less than 200 shells through it.

Go to nearest tree, get a branch about the same size, whittle it down til it fits, cut it until only two shells load in the tube, hunt away!

#2 Pencil, cut to same size.

I have also pulled the metal ring out which holds the spring in as well. Can be a pain some times. The pencil is easier.

*edit* 4runner was faster.
God Bless,

My 11-87 didn't even come with the slotted spring retainer - I just slide the spring and plug in and screw the cap on... seems to work fine.

Hmmm, I've tried to pull the spring cap (the three pronged thing) out but it seems to be fixed in the tube. It started to bend when I pried on it a little. The plug I bought was for a 20 gauge model 1100 and the label on the package confirmed that.

What's the trick to getting the cap out?

I always used a piece cut from a plastic cloths hanger. Plastic will not absorb moisture like a stick or wooden pencil.
