I got a 4+1 870 tactical last week and have been trying to decide which method I was going to use to remove the detents from the magazine tube. I have gone back and fourth, talked to Remington and gunsmiths and read every article and watched every you tube video I could find.Finally I decided to drill them out and I am very glad I did. It was quick and easy with no scary moments and it cost me exactly zero. I'm glad the OP was able to ultimately get the tool out of the magazine.

I used the XS dimple removal tool. Greased up good with Lucas red and tacky and followed the directions. It went well and was able to remove the slug by hand.
