Sir; if you will notice the chamber you should find that there is about an inch and a half of free chamber from the end of the 45 cartridge and the throat of the rifling in the barrel. The 45/410 barrels are well known to not be all that accurate using the solid projectiles. With that much jump from case mouth to rifling the accuracy is just not there. As for the sights I have never tried that and not ever heard of anyone doing it, but I am sure it has been done by someone.
For using shot shells in the Contender you may have to try a few different brands and types of shells to find just what works best in your particular barrel. These are just my thoughts and probably worth less then you paid for them, but I hope that it is of some help. Good luck and God bless.
