Not currrently that I know of but Savage used to make the O/U combination guns. I had one that was .22Hornet over 12Ga. I couldn't get the .22Hornet barrel to shoot better than about 3MOA.

Probably a savage 24 used somewhere but many have said it's only reliable as a shotgun or rifle but not both. But for the price I would buy 2 guns.

How does that go?

Only accurate guns are interesting.

The Savage combo guns are not very interesting. Prices are pretty steep too.

The Chiappa M6 is one. Most of 'em are .22 and either .410 or 20 gauge due to the light weight and recoil.
"...it's only reliable as a shotgun or rifle but not both..." The Savage M24(.223 and 20 ga.) I had was 100% reliable using either barrel. Really poor accuracy out of the rifle barrel though. Trigger was horrible and the sights worse.

I bought a Springfield M6 when they were available. My two other O/Us are a little turkish .410 and an SKB 20 gauge made for Weatherby.
I could turn the SKB into a combo gun by putting in an adapter for .22 (or some other cartridge).
