Looks like a labor of love. How do they shoot?

Great project. Strangely enough, I have considered the barrel adapters for my .45 colt/.410 survivor.

Ditto on the question about how well they shoot. Also, how do you get the various calibers to eject with the stock .45 colt ejector? Did you make the adapter barrels, or have them made for you?

Nice work and good assortment of calibers. Did you make the muzzle brake? Does it help? Any issues with shot wads passing through it?

Well it's a 12 Gage barrel cut down to 18.25 with an adjustable poly choke , on a handie frame , and the surviver stock I purchased online. The 2 shortlane inserts are the only ones I bought the rest I made from barrels that I salvaged or gifts and trades, the 22k hornet is the most resent. How does it shoot , all very well as I made each one to fit the 12 Gage barrel as snug as possible, all of them will hit a pie plate or pop can at 100 yards. The 357 max is the only one I have shot out to 200 yards and was hitting a 8" steel plate over and over. Lots of fun.

My thoughts for this is as a SHTF gun when ammo could get scarce ! So what ever you might find or trade for, I would have the ability to use it. I can at last count fire 23 different rounds.

all the barrel inserts are cut with a nail flick I don't use the stock injector on the 12 gauge to eject spent cases I just use my fingernail

Very Cool!!!!!!! So does the poly-choke work like a collet to hold the insert?
