Default OOOOBER cheap shooting with my Berg

I just ordered this today: 12 Ga. Shotgun Barrel Adapter Sleeve....Shoot .22 Caliber Bullets
I hope it's decent but I'll have to wait & see. I'll keep y'all informed on how well it does. If you've tried it let me know about it.

I also ordered this one: Rifled Conversion Adapter, 12 Ga./.22 LR
This one has rifling grooves so there'll be a comparison test.

Well the first one came in today. There were no rifling grooves so I didn't expect to be impressed & I wasn't. The "accuracy" wasn't too much to brag about. First round fired was an Aguila Super Colibri, the buzzing from the bullet tumbling was a little louder than the shot as it curved right. It sounded like hitting a PVC pipe against something. The next one was a federal bulk round, it sounded like I dropped a firecracker down the barrel. It also buzzed. I'd hate to put a crappy review on something but I also don't want y'all to waste your money. If this was rifled it'd more than likely would be worth it. I'm still waiting on the other one. I believe its length & grooves are about the same as the barrel of the Taurus PT 22 so accuracy should be fairly decent.

yeah, I would definitely imagine the rifled one to be more accurate, what shotgun are you using with these?

I got the second one in today. Here's the message I sent to Dina Arms:

"I'm extremely disappointed of wasting $22 on a disposable piece of aluminum crap that only fires the first few times. At least now I have a complete review on your "product" *to show to potential money wasters before they get screwed. I hope this is comes as an inspiration or constructive criticism to make something worth selling.

Good day"

I took it to the woods, put a couple good shots into a Dr. Pepper bottle, & then it didn't want to fire anymore. It's not my gun or the ammo. The firing pin hits it, & I went through round after round. My other adapter works fine, just horribly inaccurate. I guess I unleashed the wrath of Monday unto them but what can I say? I expected better.

I'm going to stick to my current plan.

Does anybody still make the old multiple weapons where you have a shotgun and a rifled barrel in one gun?
I always thought a combo gun would be kinda handy.
I found this one. Out of stock of course.
