There is an auction tomorrow selling these guns. Should I go? I do not have a shotty yet or a 357
if that's all that's there, then don't go.
true it is about a hour drive anyway. The only thing is since the auction is during the week no one will be there and they will go for next to nothing
that 410 pump will probably go pretty high
if you've got nothing better to do, sure.
otherwise just look for estate sales in upper middle class areas.
As hard as those are to find, I have to wonder why. .410 ammo availability is not exactly consistent, nor is there as much variety to it as 20-, 16-, and 12-gauge.
I guess people love the novelty of a .410 pump. Makes me wonder whether or not someone has devised some way to make a .45LC levergun into a .410 lever shotgun.
Old .410's, like that Mossberg probably is, are usually hard to find simply because they're rare and are considered to be collectors items. Ammo is scarce because it's not really a popular chambering anymore, 16 is getting to be harder to find and more expensive too.
I've never seen a .45LC to .410 lever conversion, and I'm going to assume that's due to the difference in case/hull length, which would probably make feeding nearly impossible. Marlin and Winchester have both made lever action .410 in the past couple years, not sure if they're still being produced though.
I didn't think it would be particularly easy given that .410 looks to be about twice as long as .45LC. Perhaps if one made some amalgamation of a .45LC levergun and something with a longer cartridge like 30-30?
Eh, hardly practical.
