I have acquired a Neumann 12 guage side by side. I have been told by the previous owner that he fired many 2 and 3/4 " #4 and #6 from this gun.I would like to exchange more info about this gun.
Deer slugs are the shotgun shells to use when deer hunting.
It should be marked on the barrel or recieiver.
There is no "break in" shotgun. A "break open" shotgun is a single barrel, double barrel, or combination rifle/shotgun which breaks open in the sense that a lever will unlock the action, allowing the barrel to pivot at a hinge at the front of the receiver, pivoting the rear of the barrel up to expose the chamber. A shells may be loaded into the chamber and the barrel pivoted back to close the action. The act to "break in" a shotgun means to fire it a few times to loosen it up.
Yes, shorter shells are no problem.
410 shells only and only what the barrel is marked for.
Yes, but beware that many blank shells contain corrosive gun powder. Clean your shotgun after firing blanks to avoid pitting your barrel.
I am seeking the age of my 410 double barrel shotgun. It came from my grandfather and has the following markings: Springfield Arms Co. Pat Apr 20, 1915 X57709 It has double triggers and is chambered for 2 1/2 shells. Thanks
With double triggers YES
You need to take it to a gunsmith so it can be thoroughly checked.
To shoot the double shot, you have to cock it enough so it clicks and makes an L shape. Then put the darts into the orange shells and put them into the two holes at the corner of the L. Then you can fire two darts at once. then press that button at the top/middle of the gun and bend it. The shells will pop out. To shoot again, repeat the cycle.
A 41 magnum caliber revolver will shoot 410 gauge shotgun shells but is not recommended. The shot will lead the barrel rifling. There are also adaptors you can put in a shotgun that allow you to fire pistol/rifle ammunition.
Most commercially available shotgun shells come in boxes of 25.
Air soft shotgun shells are the size of 12 gauge shotgun shells.
It depends on what you want to do. If you want to hunt, like duck, I would recommend a semi-auto shotgun chamberling at least 3 shells. If you want to shoot fast and accurately, like quail hunting or skeet shooting, I would recommend a single trigger "over and under" shotgun.(I think this is the best shotgun) But I would not recommend a double-barrel shotgun because of the barrel positions for any of these topics. If you just want to collect shotguns just get engraved and in good condition shotguns. (That's what I would recommend)
Its quite simple as that it ejects the shotgun shell out of the gun after it has been fired but this depends on the type. A double or single barrel shotgun would only eject the shells when u hit the release mechanism to reveal your side of the barrel then they eject out.On any other type shot gun where u load 8 or have a clip they generally fling out the side when re-cocked or if automatic they do this automatically. Hope i helped
as long as it is not a damascus barrel and is in safe working order yes i only use vintage single shots and use modern shells all the time but rember NEVER NEVER in a damascus barrel
Find someone who reloads shotgun shells. They will relieve you of your inventory.
Should use either 2 1/2" or 3" .410 shotgun shells.
NO. 3 1/2 shells are fairly new and only to be shot through rifles rated for it. If it doesn't say it on the barrel, DON'T DO IT!
You can fire 2 and 3/4 inch shells in a shotgun chambered for 3 inch shells. There is no 3 and 3/4 inch shell made.
there is no minimum age to get a shotgun certificate but can only purchase a shotgun or shells if 18+ there is no minimum age to get a shotgun certificate but can only purchase a shotgun or shells if 18+
The shell size is normally stamped on the barrel near the reciever. Shells have been made in many sizes over the years ranging from inch & a half mini shells up to three & a half inch magnums. If you cant find a size marked on the shotgun you should have a gunsmith inspect the gun to determine proper size. A shotgun that old cannot fire steel shot. The barrel steel is too soft and will be ruined by steel shot.
Yes, I don't think you should have a problem, but your pattern may not be consistent.
You can use nothing but 410 shells in a 410 shotgun.
Definately not. I can't think of any offhand that can, but if it is not marked on the barrel then it cannot shoot them.
