Yes they are available at most Gunshops and have a Google around.

I have had adapters from 12bore down to 20 bore and .410.
I found the performance and choke behaviour completely different when using the adaptor in the 12 bore, as against firing a .410, or 20 bore gun.
Try them on a pattern plate and you will see what I mean.

ive got a 12 down to 410 adaptor

comes in handy when rabbits are to close to use 12 guage im sure u can still get them new but expensive as the ones i seen where full length
the one i use is about 1 foot long (ish)
got mine off fleabay before they went daft and stopped people selling stuff like that

Thanks chaps.Reason I ask is that I have a Hushpower .410 which I hardly use and also the 12g which I use alot so thought I could reduce the clutter in my cabinet.Will keep looking but not much on UK websites yet.

iv used the 20 bore ones in the 12 gauge, when in woods and hit the pigeons clean out the top of the woods when flying over.
