Is the magazine tube threaded or just pressed in?

I want to remove the forend wood and the tube doesn't pull out, it won't budge and I don't want to force it and screw it up.

The 71 is a really special Winchester, if you ask me. The .348 is about as perfect an elk cartridge as there is. Somewhere on Youtube is a classic video of a bunch of guys going hunting with their Model 71s in the 1950s. Here is that video I love it! https://lowerbalsamlake.com/canadian-moose-hunt

They both shoot ok you can hit tin cans with them at 20 feet can't complain with the fixed sights that are on them.

I don't shoot the 929 much and I mostly use the 949 with snake shot in it.
