    Was in the local Cabelas this evening and saw a neat little 410 shotgun. It was a Century Arms Adler 410 lever action imported from Turkey. Looks to have a 20 or 22 inches barrel with removable chokes and magazine capacity of 5 or maybe six shells. Stock was straight grip with a short length of pull. Weight was probably around 6 pounds.

    Had not seen or heard about this one before.

    Has anyone got any experience with them?

    Never heard of that one but it's less than half the price of the lever action .410 shotgun made by Henry. Never personally saw a .410 lever gun from Henry but they look good on the web site. They cost from about 893 to 947 bucks MSRP, depending on barrel length, although Henry's can usually be had for less than MSRP. Would be nice if you could examine a Henry in person to decide for yourself. One thing I've noticed is the Henry doesn't have screw-in chokes like the Adler. The Henry has a cylinder bore barrel only..... no choke tubes.

    Looks like the price is lower, but that is one ugly lever gun. Just my opinion. I hope it looks better in person. I would choose the Henry over it even if I had to wait for a while to earn some extra cash. On the other hand if you like it and it will do what you need it to do, then go for it!

    Not really looking to buy one, just saw that it was different. The top of the reciever showed some scuffing that makes me wonder about the new in the box on the ticket. Also a little more research and I found that the barrel is 20.5" and capacity is only 4 shells. Also the lever is similar in design to the Winchester 1887 with the long connection to the bolt.

    I think they are made more for the Australian market, but apparently they are sold here in the US, too. The Win. 94 .410 and the Henry are much more elegant designs.

    I was really interested in their A110 12 gauge when they were announced a couple of years ago, but I am still waiting to see one. Those look pretty nice, but I'm not in the market for a .410.

    I would refinish the stock with a high gloss finish!
