Please Note:  Not all shotguns are the same!  While most shotgun are capable of handling high pressure rounds such as the. On the other hand some are not.   Therefore only use these rounds in shotguns that are capable.  For example, a shotgun with a SB1 or Sb2 reciever.  I recommend on any shotgun to test the first shot in a vice while out of harms way in addition  always wear eye and ear protection.  After that if you see that the primer punctured in the round discontinue using this round and use the less powerful round. Such as a 38 Special instead of the 357 Mag These high pressure rounds include: 45-70 Shotgun Adapters., 357 Mag, 327 Shotgun Adapters , 44 Mag, and 22 Hornet.  Please always be safe and aware.
Thank you for reading.

 

What are Shotgun Adapters?

Shotgun Adapters frequently called Chamber Reducers or Shotgun Barrel Inserts. Our shotgun adapters allow you to use other types of ammunition in a Break Action Shotgun. Including double barrel and over and under double barrels in addition to the popular single barrel break action. We offer several different versions to suit your preference in ammunition, as well as length. 12 and 20 Gauge shotgun adapters are our most popular adapters followed closely by the 410. 16 Gauge is something we plan on expanding in the future.

FPS (Feet Per Second)


As a general rule, the longer the adapter, the more FPS it produces. However, with low-pressure rounds such as the 45 colt, the fps difference is minimal. If you are interested, here is an excellent website that gives a good idea of fps per inch BBTI. All of our shotgun adapters are entirely made in the United States and are an affordable addition to your break action shotgun. Thank you for you interest in our Shotgun Adapters or Chamber Reducers. We are working to make more adapters for more calibers, so you can sign up to be notified here
The video below gives a brief demonstration of how they work.

    Finally I have another use for my H&R break top 12 gauge shotgun . The adapter fits snuggly in the barrel , can’t wait till I find some 45/70 ammo to shoot.

    I tried it in a Baikal 12 gauge / 223 over under. Using Steinel low recoil 300gr 1400 ft/sec ammunition I was able to obtain half inch groups at 50 yards. I was impressed with the inserts performance and its overall quality. I did use brass shims to compensated it with the 223. The additional bracing at the muzzle may have ate it and its accuracy versus just the O-rings. I will be buying a second one to make a double barreled 45- 70.

    Fast shipping, adapter looks good and fits great in my Rossi single shot 12 gauge. Hoping to get ammo to try it out sometime in 2021!

    The barrel shipped fast and was packaged very well. The barrels are priced right and well made. Their website and the literature shipped with the barrel are clear and concise as what to do in set up, use, care and expectations to have. On a quick trip to a local sandbank I placed it in the top barrel of an O/U and at 50 yards offhand it hits 8″ high 2″ right 3″ groups consistently using only a bead sight with no rear sight or rib and 405gr bullets. Im looking forward to tweaking this to improve accuracy. My next trip will be better prepared and at longer distances using a rest and trying different ammo and reseating the barrel with varying combinations of the plentiful O-rings supplied. I’ve had a .22/410 O/U thats been my go to small game gun for decades. I love the 2 in 1 concept. Now with a 45-70/12ga. O/U for deer/grouse/rabbit my next will be converting a 410 O/U to 38spcl./410 to try on yote’s. I will definitely be buying that barrel from Chazel. I highly recommend this company! Now if I could only find more ammo……….???😁

    This is a beautiful work of art. However, due to the ammo shortage, I have not been able to fire it yet. The adapter arrived promptly as promised and in excellent packaging. The bluing on the barrel coupled with the engraving is awesome. Now, I am waiting for a 30/30 adapter with a childlike expectation of I WANT IT NOW attitude.

    As with the of the four adapters I’ve purchased so far. The 45-70 adapter is made with the same precision and detail. Fortunately I haven’t been able to use it yet but I sure look forward to it. I’m waiting for the 44 magnum and the 22 magnum both in 18in!

    Fits my old H&R very well. I have tested a few of my cast loads with it from 340gr to 405gr (all trap door safe loading). I could remove the case without any tools but still sealed well. I am glad I could get a 24″ long do to my H&R is 26″ long. with 24″ I can get better use of the powder and get more FPS out of my loads.

    This is the 6th barrel adapter I have bought from Chaszel. I have bought adapters from other companies but Chaszel has been the best value and the most accurate. Shooting from my pickup hood as a rest I have routinely shot 2″ groups at 100 yards with both the 30-30 18″ barrel out of my model 94 savage .22/20 gauge with open sights and also 45/70 24″ in my H&R single shot with red dot sight. I was using reloaded ammo with lever evolution bullets.
    With a break action shotgun and one of these barrels you have all you need for a stay in the woods and the ability to hunt whatever you may come across, big game, waterfowl or upland birds and small game. I wouldn’t have bought 6 of them if I didn’t believe in the product.

    Bought two of the 24 inch 45-70 adapters for my Eagle Arms (Zabala HNOS) side x side shotgun. Was fun to shoot a box of
    45-70 through my shotgun. I now have a poor mans double rife as well as a double barrel shotgun. So far a great buy. Next
    time I buy more adapters I will try it with a over/ under shotgun.

    Outstanding, worked perfectly in converting a 12ga Crescent SXS into a Modern Coach combo rifle/shotgun. Just like all other adapters I have(20ga to9mm/12ga to9mm/20ga to357mag 11″/12ga to .45-70 18″) they are excellent quality and accuracy is as expected .In many respects more practical and much less expensive than other options for sure.

      Good Afternoon, I’m sorry you have not received your adapter. It was shipped on the 15th, after that it is out of my hands as far as how fast it gets there. All of the longer adapters are shipped Priority MaiL. The tracking was updated yesterday so the delay is most likely due to Covid19. I am again sorry for your inconvenience.

    Great buyer service,shipment extremely fast, I bought a 24” 45/70 adapter and a 18” .44 mag adapter. Both very very well made and tight fit. I haven’t had a chance to test fire them, but I have no doubts about accuracy being great. Do not hesitate to buy or order, as you can’t go wrong! Thanks Chad great experience all around.
