Default 12g to 20g adaptors?



Advertise Here

So the centerfire adaptors have been covered,pretty much a waste of money.If I ran across a deal(10-20$ each)I might get then just for the heck of it.

There is a good thread going on about 20g that I don't want to derail.It seems to me that an adaptor for that might be somewhat more useful.Other than weight,there is nothing a 20 can do than a 12 can't.

I don't have any 20's,but might be handy just in case.

Any comments or experience?

If you don't reload the adapters could come in handy. Back in the paper shell days you could cut off and split a 16 so a 20 would fit - before duck tape.

I've got a few in the safe. Most have never been shot. I shot a 410 in a 12 ga a few times. Not impressed. A few would not allow my shotgun to close. My suggestion is to just buy an inexpensive 20 gauge. I have a couple of savage shotguns and just picked up extra barrels on Ebay. I have a savage 94 with a 12,20 and 410 barrel. Just a thought. I reload so have a lot of variation available.

Best uses IMO are for training new shooters with 12 gauge shotguns and for reduced noise and damage for very close shots with very small shot like coup-de-gras for downed game.
