Does anyone know if they make tubes to convert a shotgun to a centerfire?  I'm wondering if I could adapt my .410 side by side to shoot something like .223?  It would be fun to use turkey sites and use it like a double rifle.  

I'm at work so the security software wont let me search any sites taged with "weapons" so I can't find out for myself right now.

Even if you could get "inserts", which I doubt, and even if those inserts could handle the pressure of centerfire, which I really doubt, you would still have a barrel regulation issue that could not be overcome.

Sights? Sighting system?

Its fun to fantasize though.

I remember seeing inserts that would allow you to shoot a 22lr in a 45lc. The insert had about 3/4" of rifling. Accuracy probably poor. Just get slugs like trust me suggested.

My drilling has a .22 rimfire barrel that inserts into one of the 12 ga barrels so it is doable.

I just used my phone to search and found a couple of companies that make rifled tube inserts.  The problem is ejection, you have to tap the shell out with a rod.  At least for the .22 and .22 mag.  

www.mcace.com

Anyone have an idea of what it would cost to put choke tubes in a .410?  Then maybe I could get a rifled choke tube to try and get some accuracy out the the .410 slugs. (they don't group well now).  My Browing 12 ga pump with a rifled choke is very accurate with Breneke KO slugs.

Whose death, the charging buf or the guy with the 410?
