Default .410 Double Barrel!

Anyone out there currently using a .410 double for anything besides Cowboy shooting? I've got a desire to get a .410 double, with adjustable chokes, for some fun shooting (sporting clays, trap, skeet, etc.)

I'm not looking to break the bank so Browning's, as good as they are, are not on my prospective list. I'm looking at Savage/Stevens, Mossberg, and CZ. I did come across another brand, TriStar, but I know nothing about them. I'm not particular as to whether it's an O/U or a S/S.

Any help, experience, etc., would be most appreciated!

Not sure if this helps. Ive got three shotguns 2 pumps and a side by side the pumps are 12ga mossbergs and the sife by side (my favorite) is a cz ringneck in 12ga. I love my cz i wouldnt hesitate to get another if something happened to the one i have.

Each barrel on the cz has recesses cut for removable chokes. Ive got a full set for each barrel. So for range practice i full choke each barrel then for doves i can set a near and far choke. If i had known more when i bought it i would have got double triggers instead of the selector model.

Do you have your heart set on removable chokes? If you don't mind something a little older, .410 sxs's show up on the used gun racks at shops and at gun shows from time to time. A friend of mine has one, I have no idea what brand but it's 1940's or 1950's vintage, 2 1/2" chambers, double triggers, and it's an absolute blast to shoot. He usually takes it out once a year for rabbits.

The problem with fixed choke double .410's is that they are usually choked F/F or F/M. I really don't want a full choke on the gun. I'd rather not have to go to the expense of having them opened up to delete the full choke. And, from all I've heard about this, it's more trouble than it's worth, the opened muzzles usually are problematic.

As for having one modified for tubes, that's quite an expense.

Hence my quest for one already set up for tubes. Then I can easily tailor the gun to purpose at hand for a particular day.

Yes, most SxS .410's have fixed full chokes, but not all of them. Sometimes you find them choked skeet/skeet. The one I mentioned before is so choked and for all the effective range of a 2 1/2" .410 shell, it seems to work just fine.

Not as cool as a sideXside .410, but have you seen the carbine version of that Judge pistol? Interesting animal; i keep wondering how one would be for tree rats.

Does anyone other than Browning make a double 410 with choke tubes?

After some more research, it would appear that no one other than Browning makes any type of .410 with interchangeable chokes. They have several O/U models, and the BPS. The BPS may be the way to go in the price range that I'm looking to spend. I already have two BPS guns, a 16Ga and a 12Ga. A .410 BPS wouldn't find itself an orphan, anyway!
