Do they make ported shotguns?1895Gunner said:Yepper, they have been carrying the .410 for some time although they show the wrong picture online. I'm thinking of trying to pick one up soon. My goal will be to cut the barrel to 18.5", change out the stock to a straight one and change the lever to match. It'll be my .410 Guide Gun.
Lonerider; I'm not saying it makes sense or that I need it. That is just what I want! If you haven't noticed I like Guide Guns and the fact that I could have a .410 look just like them sounds like a fun project for me. Yepper, I could buy a single shot, double barrel, pump, semi but that isn't what I want. It would make a great rabbit & squirrel gun. Heck if I shoot slugs even deer. I already carry a judge for the snakes but what a great small game gun!Lonerider said:Little confused here....is the .410 shot gun, built on a 1895 frame or is it on the 1894 model with the 45 colt?
I can see if it they were made on the smaller 1894's....they would be pretty handy and quick. But to build one exclusively on the 1895 platform, not so sure. Might as well just make 45-70 shot shells, using 410 wads.
and....what would be the praticality of having a .410 guide gun?...Not opposed to it, just not sure it its worth the cost, when I can go down to the local Coast to Coast store or farm/ranch store and pick up a light easy to carry single shot, new england .410, for about $179 versus...what.....$359+.
So other than the novelty, what be the biggest critter you could reasonable hunt for, snakes, rabbits, quail.....ducks?
Just curious is all. Though I have not done so, I have considerd making a batch of snake shot for my GG.....but in reality, I am better just carring a pistol with snake shot instead. Has far as hunting birds......would a .410 GG be usable for this?
