Shotgun Inserts

Post by ckdeaton on 17th January 2012, 12:05

On a previous thread about the ultimate survival weapon, I brought up the shotgun inserts in order to make a 12 gauge more versatile. Some questions were brought up about accuracy. The thought of shooting a round out of a 3 inch insert and having it travel down a shotgun barrel is kinda sketchy. But the guys at http://www.gunadapters.com/12-gauge-to-9mm-extended-length-rifled-adapter/ have made a rifled 9 inch insert that shoots 9mm pretty well.

The bad part is you cant use it with a pump shotgun

As a survival gun, a single shot is the best way to go. Pumps and semi-autos are nice but there's a lot more working parts and more chance of mechanical failure. The inserts are only a lightweight option to make the gun more versatile.

I went on Pathfinders and watched Dave shoot 6 or 7 rounds at what he said was 22 yards. It was accurate with just a bead sight. He also said that they were going to start making other calibers. I have always believed it is a good idea. I have a couple of different shotgun inserts but all of them are just 3 inches. I would think a 9 inch insert would be like shooting my contender. MCA makes them long but you can never get them to respond to a e-mail.

I need to hurry up and get another lathe, i need several different calibers of these..probably enough to put a good down payment on a small one.

I would buy some if the price, caliber and length were right. All you would have to do is buy blank barrels then - cut to length, lathe and caliber to caliber. I want a 40 S&W and 10mm at 10" length.

Let us know how they work out, gunaddict.

Do they only have one adapter for .38 and .357, or am I missing something on their website?

No its one. It uses the same insert for both 38 and 357.

BTW these are supposed to be rifled, but I am sure it is equivalent to shooting them out of a snub nose at best. There is another company that has longer inserts that are around 9 inches for more rifling, but they are around $100. Got mine to teach my little girl how to shoot with the 22lr insert in my H&R my dad bought for me when I was little. Better than buying a cheap little gun for her and she can grow into it. From what I have read they group 4-6 inches at 75 yards. That is better than I will be able to shoot with bead sights so it will be a fun little plinker if they work like everyone has stated.

Seems from what I'm reading that the Dina adapters are made of aluminum. Wonder if they'll hold up? Aluminum isn't a particularly hard metal.

They said they would.. We shall see.. Not whole lot of money invested if they don't.

had to flip the .357 upside down so you could see the rifling in them.

Live and Learn. First time I have ever seen these things. I didn't know anyone made anything like it. I'm interested to see how well they work.
