    No. The gun has to be specifically chambered for .410/45.
    If you could get a .45 Colt in a .410 shotgun, you would blow it up.

    Bill is spot on. There are folks that have decided to shoot 45 Colt, or even (shudder) 44 magnum) out of a .410 shotgun. Each time you pull the trigger, it may be your last. Shotgun was not meant for those pressures, and bore diameter is wrong.

    Issue becomes clouded in that there WERE guns made to fire either- but the key is they were MADE to do that, and are so marked.

    +1. One of the basic rules of firearms is to use the correct ammo for you firearm. I believe that it is also in the user's manual.

    (You did read the user's manual, no?)

    So don't do it unless it's the end of the world and it's life and death

    It sounds like it may be safer to use the gun as a club in an end of the world scenario.

    .410 bore, commonly misnamed the .410 gauge, is the smallest gauge of shotgun shell commonly available. It has similar base dimensions to the .45 Colt revolver cartridge, though the .410 is significantly longer, up to 3 inches (76 mm), allowing many single-shot firearms and some revolvers chambered in that caliber to fire shot without any modifications.

    It's too bad this isn't the case. That'd have the potential to be one heck of a versatile little carbine...maybe even a nice home defense tool.

    T/C made a 45 Colt/ .410. Until the feds climbed all over them- and they changed to a 44 Mag/ 44 Mag extended shot round. If you look at the Judge, it is MARKED 45 Colt/ .410 .
