Default 410 barrel markings.

I have a newport w break open 410.
The only markings on it say 410/12mm choke. I can not find a chamber size anywhere on the barrel. Ive shot hundreds of rounds thru it over the past couple years and may have already shot 3" shells i cant remember but im leary to do so without knowing the chamber size. Without knowing if the choke is full or modified im leary of any slugs. Any help would be great.

Slugs could care less what the choke is, but chamber size does matter.

First your gun was made likely by Crescent (later ones by Iver Johnson) and is close to 100 years old.

12mm was a shot round from long ago, but the gun could also shoot .410 shells- WHICH AT THAT TIME WERE POSSIBLY 2 INCH SHELLS. 2 and a half came later, then 3 inch. The only way to tell for sure, lacking markings, is take it to a competent gunsmith who can check with a chamber gauge.

They were sold by the Hibbard Spencer Bartlett Company of Chicago, Il, a large wholesale sporting goods dealer. If you look real close it may be a model WN.

Choke- with those .410s, all or nothing. That is a full choke. Smith can check the choke with a choke gauge to be sure.

Slugs are not your problem- a slug will go thru any choke EXCEPT an Extra Full Turkey, or a an old Mossberg "dial a duck" adjustable choke (C-Lect Choke) Your problem is getting the gun checked to determine the correct ammo.

PS- yeah, I love me some 410 topbreaks. My first gun was a Harrington & Richardson single shot 410. Gift from my Grandad- on the day I was born.

Thanks for the reply s and ill avoid the 3" shells until i can get it checked. I fell pretty safe with 2.5" ive shot close to 2 hundred thru it so far with no problems.
By the way peoplebkeep telling me to sell it by people i mean walmart and cabelas counter staff. There saying the 410 is loosing popularity and the shells will double even triple in cost. I dont care its an absolute pleasure and joy to shoot.

Walmart and Cabela's counter staff are clueless about anything gun-related.

In any given series of shotguns, the .410s usually command the highest prices. But keep your day job- the single shot .410s are usually around $150- and the .410 shell is going nowhere.

Think I'm kidding on price of .410 shotguns? I have my Dad's Remington 1100 Light Field. It is an 1100, smaller frame, in .410. Check the price on an 1100 Light Field, and then gulp real hard.

Art- the Remington 1100 is a semi- and there are a bunch of other semis, including an AK47 lookalike, SxS, O/Us, bolt actions, pumps, lever actions, etc.
