In a nut shell, you can't, it is silver soldered in place.

Yeah, as far as home tinkerers are concerned, an 870's magazine tube is essentially predominantly-attached. A trained gunsmith with specialized tools and jigs can remove & install magazine tubes if the original tube becomes irreparably damaged, or cut-down and re-thread a tube for a shorty build or use with non-standard barrels, but it's not something you're going to be able to pull off at home with a hammer and a pair of pliers.

Why do you want to remove your mag tube?
