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.

Most of our shotgun adapters come in different lengths to suit your needs. Some like the secure storage and portably of Shell length adapters. Whereas some are looking to get the most fps (feet per second) or accuracy out of their adapter. Black Oxide has become our standard finish. We can offer unfinished adapters during our production if you have requested one.

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 once past the 11″ length. 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.

    So i have the 357/20ga 18”, 45-70/12ga 18” and just ordered the 20ga/9mm 18” and the 45lc/410 to 12ga 18” adapters. Love the first 2. Can’t wait for the next 2..

    Adapter is top grade quality, very fun to shoot. Going to make a bunch of black powder rounds on the forth of July and celebrate our independence and freedom with this adapter and the 357 magnum that came the other day.

    Even though I haven’t used this item yet, I am happy with the product. And I do expect good results.. I have an of brand, older 12 ga. Has a SS, or Chromed vent ribbed 30 inch full choke barrel.. I lubed the O-rings that came with the insert and stuck it in. Was a nice snug fit and the break action works well.. It is slightly stiffer with having to slide the O-rings when breaking the action, but once I get it sighted (Is in the instructions) I intend to set it up as a permanent as I have other 12 ga shotguns and want to use this as the 45 colt primary. Took the 45 colt/410 option due to owning a Circuit Judge. The Judge being the same caliber 45 and 410 and having it long enough to both plink and hunt with (bird shot and squirrel so far), and having good results… Anyways,, the insert looks GREAT inside and out, nice shiny smooth finish, and even though it looks great on the outside, I’m talking about looking down the inside.. Took a micrometer to it and specs are good.. I was worried about added weight to the gun, no problem there,, nice lightweight piece..
    The only thing that I didn’t like, not that it’s a big deal and for many reasons that it’s not a big deal..I wish that I could have got a 26 inch insert for the 30 inch barrel though you don’t gain anything from it. And I think that they should make a straight choke for it for the 410 so that it will/would be more accurate for both shot and light game slugs/balls loads… Overall a very nice piece and I would buy another if I had a shorter barreled break action shotgun…

    I originally ordered 20 ga in 45lc not realizing it didn’t shoot the 410 shot shell . Chad traded me a 12 ga 45lc/410 barrel because he didn’t have it in 20 ga it fits great in my two 12 ga guns .I now have four adapters and waiting on a 762/25 tokrov adapter . they all shoot great!

    Bought one 18”x45ACP. ITS A KEEPER! I was looking for a way to post today’s target fired at the Seattle Police Athletic Association ranges, but I couldn’t find a way to do it with this review. If I had, what you would have seen is 10 shots, handloads, with AA#7 and 180gr clad hollow base bullets printed 2” at 50 yards. Excellent. This H&R 12ga Topper bought at a pawn shop for $40 out the door in 1998, using chaszel’s 18” inserts, is making all my expensive other rifles and shotguns obsolete. Good job Chadzel👏👏👍😁

    Quality workmanship but I order the wrong insert and have returned it and it should be arriving there today. He may be sending a corrected insert. Really like dealing with them, very upfront and fair.

    I have a single shot 12ga in my collection as well as several 45Colt single action revolvers. The 18in 45 Colt adapter is very high quality
    I took it on last outing and worked perfectly, I couldn’t shoot as accurately as the potential it has with just a bead sight but easily hit pop cans at 25 yards. Really expands the versatility of a shotgun.

  46. Roger L. (verified owner)

    Quality is awesome super fast shipping, packing is superb can’t wait to shoot them. My first insert was a 38/357 18
    inch using H&R 12 ga. Was able to get 3 1inch shot patterns at 50 yds. These next Two are 45LC and 45ACP I
    will be going to the range in the next few weeks i will do
    another review then again would like to thank Chad and
    everybody else at Chaszel for a job well done
    Best Roger

    I bought the 45 lc version and so far, color me impressed! My wife and I were only able to put 25 rounds or so through it so far but we both love it already. With armscor “cowboy” loads we were able to consistently hit a medium sized water bottle at 15-20 yards with just the bead sight. I can’t wait to put good sights or a scope on this thing and see what it’ll really do with some handloads!
