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.

    What are the o-ring size do I need for replacement if needed? On discharge end of the barrel for full choke where should the o-ring be?

    the weather was finally ok to test fire fired 5 350 with 45 grains of 5744 handled the rounds great and at 100 aim at the top of bullseye hit at just below center. Then fired 5 powered by 70 grains of bp. 405 grain flat nose lead with gas check aimed the same 1 inch above. Very happy planning another 45-70 barrel and the 44 mag insert too

    Received the product in good time, item was as described, just haven’t had time to use it yet but looking forward to it. Item appears to be very well made and instructions tell you how to care for it with pictures. Unless someone doesn’t pay attention to what is suggested then there should not be any problems unless they don’t follow them. Can’t ask for more than that!

  7. Roger R. (verified owner)

    Very well-made insert. I haven’t had a chance to use them yet, but I don’t need to in order to see the high-quality workmanship.

  8. William J. Luallen (verified owner)

    I haven’t been able to try it out yet, but installed just like you directed, and it fits tight in the barrel and chamber. So I feel that if my shotgun doesn’t let me down, I’ll have a fine backup 45/70 “rifle” to take game with, or whatever else I may need to drop.
    Thanks for your marvelous handling of my purchase, your very good at being a reliable retailer and supplier.

    I had a great first shooting experience with this adapter. I fired both commercial 45-70 and my hand loads of black powder and cast lead 405 grain flat nose bullets. I used it in my winchester model 370 break action at ranges of 25 to 100 yards. I couldn’t be more please with this adapter.

  16. John (verified owner)

    Received promptly; good fit in several single & double 12-gauge guns. This is second order; a previous order in a different calibre also received promptly, works great.

    Quality and finish was very high quality. Wait was excruciatingly long. Wish there was an extractor like I have on my savage four tenner. Will most likely void any warranty by making alterations and adding an extractor after clocking it in my application barrel.

    Absolutely amazing customer experience.
    I had purchased a 45-70 adapter and through no fault of Chaszel I nearly blew it up testing it. DO NOT DO THIS!!! My shotgun was a special test rig and I was pulling a string from many yards away with it flashed down to a bench. Anyway, i loaded beyond ruger no 1 and the adapter took all the abuse I could throw at it. I then rechambered to 45-120 (way to long for this adapter!! DO NOT ATTEMPT! ) and tested with smokeless powder. 300 grain bullet at 2850 fps… around 60,000 psi. I then went to a 500 grain and got it to 2300 fps and that’s where it failed. Just ahead of the chamber it ringed the barrel into an actual ballooned area 25 thousands long the full circumference. 45-120 is 3 1/4 inches long so the chamber was longer than the 12 gauge chamber. I was astonished at how tough this adapter was and it’s a testament to a well made product. I am guessing that last load was near 65,000 psi due to the 458 lott having similar velocity at those pressures. Chaszel explicitly states not to try what I done… AGAIN, DO NOT TRY THIS. I got in touch with Chad just to let him know my test results and they sent me replacement out of kindness…. again it wasn’t necessary, I told them it exactly what I had done and that they make an amazing product. They sent out the replacement anyway. Chaszel makes very reliable products, but the customer service is the best I have ever seen. This company deserves an award or something. Thank you Chaszel and you have a lifetime fan and customer here and I will spread the word.

    I purchased from Chad the .45-70/ 12 gauge adapters for my Aramberri sxs. I installed them and loaded six rounds
    with 405 gr.Hornady bullets over 50 grns.of H-4895 powder and took it to the range for try-out.I was very please
    with the accuracy, this o-ring method of securing and centralizing the barrel adapters is ingenious Thank you for
    engineering this system.Before I came across Chaszel, I had been looking for .45 cal. blanks on the internet to
    machine down to fit my shotgun. Your prices greately under-cut what i would figure my lador on my lathe to get the job done. A heart -felt thank you.

    Purchased both 45/70 and 30/30 adapters. They are utterly flawless and as well machined as any I have ever seen. Haven’t shot them yet but I expect all will be just fine.

  44. Donald Reynolds (verified owner)

    Good machining on the piece fits well pretty accurate.Im using a red dot sight shoots a 2 1/2 inch group at 80 yards.Fast shipping and piece was well protected for shipment.I would recommend this company to anyone wishing to purchase a shotgun adapter.

  45. Robert (verified owner)

    It’s working very well, only planning on using it to 50-70 yds, maybe a hundred. Where I hunt, it’s so thick, that you barely have 40-50 yd. shots no matter what, and often much closer. Over the next year I plan to shoot much more to find the limits, and a load that works for my needs. With these barrel options, I’m able to use my single shot shotgun for a variety of purposes, and the shotgun barrel itself has many choke options. Could make quite a nifty setup for remote excursions.

    I bought two for a 12 gauge side by side, BIG fun. Not horribly accurate due to the bead front sight, but I didn’t buy them for precision shooting. They seem well made and I haven’t had any issues with them at all. If I need more or ones in different calibers, I won’t hesitate to buy more.

    This is the 3rd shotgun barrel sleeve I have acquired and purchased 2 from you guys, and plan on future purchases. These sleeves are simply awesome. I have purchased a 45 colt 18inch acquired a 18inch 45acp and just purchased a 45-70 24inch. They all have fired extremely accurate. 1 1/2 to 2 inch groups @ 100yds for all 3. I built them on H&R SB1 frames. And used open peepsights and a scope on last one built ,the 45-70 which is the 1 1/2 group and barrel still being broke in with 405gr. Remington factory loads. Love theses sleeves, you guys do a amazing job keep up the good work, your quilty is great and please don’t let quilty fade for speed ! All good things are worth waiting for! I say this due to reading the customer comments.

    Just received my 45/70 insert today . It was an 18 inch model . I put it in a cheap 12 guage Brazil made ,double barrel shotgun. It would not hit the primer of the Hornady ammo hard enough to fire so, I put the insert in the right barrel and it worked perfectly! Thanks for a great product, and keep up the research and development.

    Finally got out to give it a try yesterday and was very happy with the performance of my 45/70 insert. No issues at all with installing, shooting,, and removing the insert, accuracy (using just the two beads on my shotgun) was better than expected and once the clamp on sights get here I’m expecting great things. Maybe I just got lucky but installed with the barrel markings at 12 O’clock the groups were centered left and right and 2″ over point of aim at 50 yards ( initial range I have tried since I only had beads to aim with). Anyway I’m very happy with both the quality and performance of my Barrel Insert and would and will consider buying more.

Works great in my Baikal 12 gauge, extremely accurate well made, I’m certain it will last for decades or longer. I can’t wait for the 327 Federal and other calibers to become available.

    Had the chance to test drive the new 45-70 18″ adapter yesterday, very impressive. Groups were within 5 inches (that’s me, not the adapter) and I’m sure with better sights this adapter could group under 2″. Used some homemade loads both 300 and 405 grain and Trail Boss powder. I really wanted to load for this round but didn’t want to buy another rifle. This adapter solved the problem. I am very pleased. I think keeping the straight wall cartridge going by making adapters in 350 Legend should be next. Thanks!

    update using TEN X 510 gr 45-70 smokeless load ,drove that slug thru both sides of a 243 pound hog and embedded so deep into the stump behind him that we was unable to dig it out with our knives, the insert is capable of taking any off the self 45-70 ammo ,as long as the gun is a strong steel receiver your
    good to go..

    I started with an 18 1/2 ” barrel Mossberg over and under HS 12. The two 45/70 inserts purchased were a perfect 18 inches. I created a double rifle. I used a very compact red dot sight. The rifle shot incredible, an inch and a half apart at 50 yards. The barrel inserts are very well made and finished. The fit was just right. I tuned the barrels by adding o rings, included, to the inserts at the muzzle. One on the top insert and 2 to the bottom. I used Hornadys flex tips. Just awesome. Pulled the bottom barrel and I have a combo gun. I highly recommend your inserts. I hope you gents get more creative with low pressure cartridges.

    This is a outfit fit from my old Exterior hammer SxS 12 gauge to my 1950’s 36” single barrel goose gun.
    Goose gun shoots very well in that 3” group with carful aim at 50 yds, give me some time to practice and with only the bead front sight I’ll bet I can do the same at 100 yards.
    Nice dark finish makes it real professional quality.
    Extra set of Orin’s came with it, nice touch.
    I bought the 24 inch long barrel because I wanted longer accuracy.
    And on it is in extra set of O-ring grooves so when I install the insert into my 18 inch barrel even though it sticks out the middle O-rings still settle inside the barrel for stability.
    Very well thought out very nice machining very nice finish I couldn’t of asked for a better insert.
    Without using the other company name I have heard that name come up a few times with guys that are very disappointed with inserts I can’t wait to show them this one I think it’ll change their mind and I’ll just start buying from this new supplier.
    It didn’t take a whole lot of time to get it through the mail the only downside was in this time of Covid they didn’t have all the calibres I would’ve like to get but I’m sure they’ll come and I’ll be happy when they do.

    Absolutely amazing! I have a cz 584 12 gauge/ 30-06, built on the same action as there old dangerous game over under 458 win mag. Well you know where this is going,… I received the 45-70 insert I ordered and got right to work. I have now loaded this 45-70 with some serious loads in this particular combination, 300 grain barnes are clocking at 2427 fps and I’m still slowly going up with no pressure signs. A lot of the safety factor has to do with the kind of gun it is in but these barrel inserts are well made and will take a pounding! Disclaimer, I am crazy don’t do what I do. always use common sense, follow the instructions,and load at your own risk!

    Very well made and works fine. Very comparable to my double rifle with the exception of the sights.

    Converted a “vintage” double shotgun into a “vintage” double rifle. Very nicely made. Impressed with the quality product. Great fit. Waiting for other adapters on back order.

    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.

  145. Jeffrey (verified owner)

    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.

  146. Jonathan B. (verified owner)

    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!

  147. Robert (verified owner)

    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……….???😁

  167. William Thomas (verified owner)

    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.

  168. James (verified owner)

    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.

    Excellent workmanship and fit. Shoots well also. It took almost 3 weeks longer than expected to get the adapter but this wasn’t Chaszel’s fault but the fault of the postal service. The good thing is that it was worth the wait. I’ve got more on order.

    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.
