Pete you gonna get one a do a range report for us? Your Double Badger comments help ped me decide to get one, tho i had to settle for a 22/20gauge cause all the 410's were never in stock!
30/30 Winchester: Not accurate enough fer varmints, barely adequate for small deer; BUT In a 10" to 14" barrelled pistol; is good for moose/elk to 200 yards; ground squirrels to 300 metres

250 Savage: The Original short action, compact, high velocity cartridge.

:shock: :o :shock: :o Nooooooo thanks !

:mrgreen:

The 20ga wasn't yet an option when I ordered my .22Mag/.410 DB - how do you like it ?

I glued a small felt pad to the underside to act as a buffer for keeping the lever from making a loud noise when it snaps up against the bottom.

I like it alot. 20 gauge is cheaper and i can either down load it or put a 410 liner in that i had made. Dont like the fat plastic fiber optic sight but dont plan on sniping squirrels at 75 yards or head shooting grouse at 50! I drilled out the stock bolt channel and can get 2 shells in it and some 22 ammo.

I've often thought of altering my DB to a Savage 24 Camper butt storage for ammo.

Hmm, the mention of the 22/.410 got me to thinking, always a dangerous thing. But how about this double barreled monster as a Drilling. Say a .44 barrel under the smooth bores. Sort of a reverse LeMat.

Ma told me there`s nothing new under the sun. This is a teat fire 50 caliber from probably around 1850?? No makers name or serial numbers. I figure it might have been a boarding pistol? It has two holes drilled for a metal clip to wear in a belt or sash.

Another picture of it with a old s&w american and a 1858 Remington new model army to give a idea of size.
