    What is avalable in changing from rifle to shotgun.Not talking about just shooting shot out of a rifled barrell.Or shooting slug from shotgun.I'm talking going from rifled barrel changing barrell to a full of screw in choke shotgun.Does Knight make one?heard they did but cant find it.

    TC currently makes the Encore and previously made the System 1 with interchangable barrels in many calibers plus a shotgun. But some of the System 1's barrel twist rates were slower at 1 in 38" instead of 1 in 28" like the Encore's. The Encore BP shotgun model has a threaded choke.

    The Knight KP1 also has an interchangable barrel system for BP rifle, BP and smokeless shotgun, centerfire and rimfire.

    CVA's Optima Elite also has a similar interchangable muzzle loader/centerfire Bergara barrel system.

    The list of available barrels is listed in the CVA catalog on page 19 and also on the Bergara Barrels website:

    I don't know if the Knight or CVA BP shotgun barrels are offered with a threaded choke.

    TC used to have the New Englander traditional rifle in .50 caliber & a interchangable barrel for a 12 Gauge.

    Kick my self for selling the one I had 20 years ago, wish they would reintroduce it again.

    Yep AND the New Englander comes in .54 too. There is a 12 gauge drop in barrel with a screw-in choke.

    You can convert a Thompson Center Hawken by getting a Green Mountain drop-in barrrel, then take the worst of the two barrels and have it reamed and polished smooth to .55 caliber for a 28 gauge shotgun. I have seen this done when a fellow bought a used TC Hawken with a roached/rusted interior on a barrel, so had to buy a new barrel. Instead of trashing the old barrel he had the interior converted to give him a nice 28 gauge.
