If you'd bought a Dan Wesson instead of the Python, you could have had a custom smooth bore barrel made for it. I wonder how much eliminating spin would help the pattern.
Eliminating the rifling caused spin does improve the patterns.

HOWEVER, a "custom" smoothbore HANDGUN makes the gun an NFA item, and requires the Federal legal paperwork, approval and tax stamp because it's now in the same class as a "sawed off shotgun".

This is why the T/C Contenders set up for shot still have rifled barrels. So they can be sold and owned as ordinary handguns, not NFA weapons.
