Yes, you can.
No, it is/was not.
The maverick 88 is the mossbergs cheaper pump action option, there are three maverick 88 models #1 is a 5+1 shot pump action with an 18 1/2 barrel and has a cylinder bore, (no chokes) chambered for 2 1/2 and 3 inch shells. #2 is a 5+1 shot pump action with a 28" barrel and has interchokes, chambered for 2 3/4" and 3" shells #3 is a 7+1 shot pump action with a 20" barrel, i am not 100% sure but i think these barrels are Cylinder and cannot change chokes, also chambered for 2 3/4" and 3" shells.
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
Is it chambered for magnum shells? If not, the answer is NO.
Mfg Date Springfield Model 39AI purchased my Springfield Model 39A 410 Bolt Action from "Western Auto" in 1943-45 holds 2.5 & 3 inch shells 6 shot with a plug to restrict it to 2 shells plus one in the chamber. I have been told by gun dealers the 39A is the MFG date is April in 1939
All day long. Any shotgun can handle shorter shells than it is chambered for as long as they are the same gauge.
Generally, you can fire any ammunition that's 3" or shorter (fired length) in a 3" chamber shotgun. however, a 2 1/4 inch shell may not be handled by the action of a pump, autoloader or bolt action gun.
It will shoot any type it is chambered for.
It will fit on the frame but the action will not function with 3 inch shells.
Ensure you look at the stamped shell gauge on the side of the receiver (12 or 20 Gauge). Should be able to take 2 3/4" and 3" shells.
Never fire ammunition in your weapon that it is not chambered for.
yes it will. the rating shotguns are chambered for is the maximum size shell you can shoot. i have a 1100 LT chambered for 3 inch and i shoot 2 3/4 inch shells out of it mostly.
It was made in 1954 and is chambered for 2 3/4" 16 ga shells.
Yes. Manufactured by J. Stevens Arms Co. Yes there is, I own a Springfield Model 18 Series F bolt action 410. It is clip fed and chambered for 2 1\2 & 3in shells. I am looking for information on its worth. I have one that is manufactured by the Savage Arms Corporation. Says Springfield Model 951 and is a single shot bolt action with 3 inch chamber. I have one that is marked "1929 Model". Anyone know what it is worth? The single shot bolt action and the single shot break-open model 1929 are both worth $50-$125, depending on condition, but only because they are .410's. If they were 12 gauges, you'd probably have to give them away. I saw the following model: Springfield Arms Company, Chicopee Falls, Mass, U.S.A Pat Apr. 20-1915 .410 guage Side-by-Side Break Open (dual front/rear triggers).
The Springfield shotgun made by "Savage Arms" company of Westfield Mass. the Model 67F is a slide action (pump) gun it came in several sizes 410, 16, 12 gauge ect. I purchased mine in about 1963 "new" in 410 gauge chambered with 3" shells On Gunbroker.com one jsut sold for $250.00. I've seen them for sale up to $275.00 For more information check up Savage Arms Corporation
Yes, However, the reverse is not true- 3 inch shells may NOT be safely fired in a gun chambered for 2 3/4 inch shells.
Only if it is chambered for them. Have it examined by a good gunsmith
The barrel may be able to be fitted however the shotgun would still be limited to 2-3/4" shells. A longer stroke of the bolt is required when shooting the 3" magnum shells which requires a different receiver. Not the best idea.
yes 2 3/4 shell will work in a shotgun chambered for 3in as long as they are of the same gauge
Not sure excactly what the question is. All Browning Sweet Sixteens (imported to Browning) after WWII are chambered for 2 3/4 16ga shells. The barrels are mared as such. Prior to 1941, Sweet 16's and Standard 16's were chambered for 2 9/16" shells.
Yes but not the other way around .You can not use 3" shells in a 2 3/4 chambered gun.
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.
