Mossberg 500 magazine follower ?s

My police department issues 8-shot Mossberg 500 shotguns. One of the guns would hold 9 rounds. I found this odd and found that the magazine follower was installed backwards, allowing the ninth round. I repaired the follower, but was wondering if the gun would feed reliably if left the way it was. It would be nice to have the ninth round, but eight is plenty also. Anybody know the answer? Thanks!

In all likelihood this over-stressed the magazine spring.
It was NOT designed to work this way.

You might want to replace it to be sure.

I don't know if the shotgun was fully loaded for a while. This gun has not been loaded to capacity for over a year that I know of. It has been in inventory for 10-15 years though. It might be a good idea after all to replace the spring just to be on the safe side. It does seem to feed ok right now.
