changing a shotgun gauge

Is it possible to get a 20 gauge shotgun changed to 12 gauge. If so roughly how much would it cost to do so?

Only if it was built on a 12 gauge frame.

What gun are you talking about? It would most likely be cheaper to just get a 12 gauge, especially if you're talking about a pump.

Now going DOWN in size is possible with SxS and O/U's via the use of sub-gauge tubes

It will not be possibe to make that change.The reciever of the 20 ga gun is too small to accept the 12 ga shell.Even if it could be done it would probably be cheaper to just buy a used 12 ga 870 in good condition.That is what I did and all I wanted to do was get a 28 in barrel for my riot gun.

No problem

Change mine all the time.

Remove the two front forearm screws, remove the cross pin and replace barrel of your choice.


Mine is an Encore
