Maybe we passed judgement on the judge too soon? I found these 410/22lr adapters on Amazon for $20. What do you guys think?:rolleyes:
Here is the link to the video from the Amazon page

I wonder if they would work in my H&R single shot break-open?

Ran across adapters like this when my eyes were good enough to shoot trap. All ya need is a 12 gauge, with the right adapter you can shoot 20/28/16 and .410.

It worked OK with a scattergun.

I have considered those, but it seems like a lot of trouble to me. I would love to hear some first hand accounts though.

Would this turn the Judge into the Bailiff?


Sorry - could not resist! :D

I had some experience with some similar critters years ago in Europe. Krieghoff made some excellent ones with barrels that extended beyond the chamber area and a camming arangement for adjustment. They did well.

The other simply cartridge length with little more than a chamber were for dispatching wounded game with the shotgun barrel in direct contact.

Using an under-sized shotgun insert is one issue. I doubt you will be happy with these.

If those adapters are rifled so it could shoot regular .22 bullets with decent accuracy then I could see them being worthwhile. Otherwise they are simply turning a bulky and heavy Judge into something even more heavy that shoots nothing more than little puffs of dust.

I have S&W .22 Magnum with .22lr inserts the concept works, but I much prefer to shoot centerfire rounds through it. Pulling spent rimfire brass a mano is kinda pia.

I thing you should call it the Gavel as using it for a hammer might be the best plan. Sorry.

I just have to say - why?

"Maybe we passed judgement on the judge too soon? "


uhhh,... nope, we didn't, sorry
that one is going to need more than downsizing of caliber
even if you switch from watermelon targets to ripe peachy-keen targets :evil:

Chamber adapters are almost always a disappointment IMHO. It would be one thing if the adapter was rifled - that would give you some sort of accuracy in the length of the cylinder, but remember that a .224 bullet is not going to touch the rifling of the bore meant for .452 bullets. Plus, the unload reload procedure is tedious - eject all the adapters, pull all the empty cases, reload the chamber adapters, reload the gun - every five shots.

The manufacturer is Short Lane Arms.

If you ask me, it's more like Short Bus Arms.

What a freaking stupid way to make an AOW.
