SHot gun caliber adapters.

Any one try this out I have and I love it. I thought I was stuck with my kinda of boring single shoot 12 gauge, but now I can basically shoot anything out of it.

I have the 22LR adapter for my 20 gauge. Mine isn't rifled,so it's obviously not very accurate. It keyholes at 25 yards, if I can get it on the paper.

I would like to hear how the longer rifled adapters perform.

Anaconda - if you want to help those folks out, write to them and mention that they inadvertently misspelled the name of their state on their home page.

Seeing these adapters reminds me of MacGyver.

i usually have an adapter in the pocket of my hunting vest. This one is for .45 ACP and fits into my 12 ga. SXSs.

I have a 357 and 22mag. I used them for dispatching loads up close with ratshot. They work very well for that use. For general shooting... I guess for rabbits up to 25 yards they might work althought the game will have a sporting chance of not getting hit.

Now, the 12 to 20ga adapter works well in an O/U. They are slow to reload but kind of a novelty which may have a real use.
