The only thing I can tell for sure is they were built by Savage Arms.............

Yeah, it says Springfield/Savage Arms. Another thing is the clip from Numrich (gunpartscorp.com) that supposedly fits the 18 C and other models does NOT fit this gun.

Did they send a .410 mag or a 12 ga.?

Anyway, I think I'd email http://dickwilliamsgunshop.com/Springfield.html

Or Bob's www.gun-parts.com/savageshotgun

Just be aware that they are usually swamped with calls and emails.

No a 12ga. mag. would not work, but the thing with the model 18`s was alot of the parts would interchange like you could have a 18c barrel on a 18 action, but the mags don`t interchange.

Lets see some pictures............

They sent a .410 mag, but the shells wouldn't load into the chamber right. They'd hang up in the magazine .... maybe the spring was weak?

i'll get some pics later on this afternoon..

They hang up in the magazine, Where ? They are a rimed round, they have to be loaded like a .303..............

The first round will load up just fine, but the next one doesn't come up high enough for the bolt to catch it and slide it into the chamber.

here's a few pics i had, I'll take more later.
