Has anyone ever heard of chopping down a 410 barrel 5 or 6 inches to accept 45 LC rounds or 44 mag rounds? If so please give details.
I would assume your .410 is a smoothbore... Cutting the barrel to less than 18" gets you in trouble with the BATFE in that you now have a sawed off shotgun regardless of what you're shooting out of it. If the .410 was a rifled barrel, then chopping the barrel to less than 16" gets you in trouble with the BATFE in that you now have a "short barrel rifle", not a pistol.Has anyone ever heard of chopping down a 410 barrel 5 or 6 inches to accept 45 LC rounds or 44 mag rounds?

Ever heard of Ruby Ridge. Do a web search for Randy Weaver or Ruby Ridge. Or I'm sure there are a few books on the subject in bookstores or libraries.OK I'll bite who is Randy Weaver
And came back into the light (lime that is) when H - S Precision Stocks had that same sniper endorse their catalogue and products with a full page on the inside cover...They lost a lot of business because of that...Ever heard of Ruby Ridge.

I am far, far from an expert, so don't bash me if I get the facts wrong.
Weaver was a survivalist living with his family out in the sticks called Ruby Ridge in Idaho. He had some contact with neo-Nazi groups and probably broke a few gun laws. Long story short, the FBI and ATF raided his home, there was some gunfire where his son was killed.
Later, a sniper shot his wife in the face and a friend and I think Weaver himself were hit. He eventually gave up.
The jury found that he had been entrapped into doing some illegal shotgun chopping or some damn thing. And it was clear the feds really, really screwed up the whole operation.
This happened in I thing 1992.
Hey Hunter1 what ammo did you find to work the best in that 410/45?i bought a h&r 410/45 the stock might not be the greatest but it has lots of storage in it they don't come from the factory with scope mounts but mine was drilled and taped for one when i bought it used i put a red dot on it sighted it for 50 yards with the 45 ammo the red dot makes it nice as i can use it for running game with shot shells good luck
Not Legal but in the 80s I new a Guy who convert a Old H&R 410 to a pistal with a adjustable choke. Very nice gun with 10 or so inch barrel he would only use 45 cowboy loads out of it because of chamber pressure and had to make sure to open up choke. I would measure the inside of barrel throat before shooting 45 cowboy loads, make sure its .454 . Does not shoot very well with smooth barrel. The only reason he did it, is that his dog chewed off the stock. He passed a few years back and never saw the gun again. Agent Orange got him in throat with cancer, bummer really cool guy and a Vet of course. Do all this at your own risk of legal or personal injury to you or people around. Not really worth doing.Has anyone ever heard of chopping down a 410 barrel 5 or 6 inches to accept 45 LC rounds or 44 mag rounds? If so please give details.
