Plug removal

Help! I want to remove the plug on my Stoeger M 3020. It looks like I need a tool to match the Mickey Mouse( ? ) outline on the end cap. If so, I can't locate such a tool. Thanks !

The only tool I needed was a small flathead screwdriver. When you disassemble the gun as for cleaning by undoing the threaded nut by hand at the end of the handgrip, there is a little metal (on newer ones; I think older may have had plastic) plug that holds in a plastic shell plug and a spring behind that, at the front of the shell magazine tube. So the trick is to gently pry that metal plug out of the tube while not having the spring throw everything out of the tube when the metal plug finely comes loose and free.

Once the metal plug, shell plug and spring come out, you just re install the spring and metal plug back into the tube and leave the plastic shell plug out. That's is.
