  1. Hi Chad,
    was wondering if you have a time frame for the .45 acp 18″ adapter? just ordered the 327 18″ adapter and it should be here i think Friday. thanks for making quality products!

    Reply
    • Good Afternoon Mr. MCcarty, I do not have a good time frame on the 45 Adapters. I would say it will be late this year or possibly next year.

      and thank you for your buisiness.

  2. Do you have any recommendations for a shotgun to purchase that I could use with the .327 Federal Magnum insert? I do not own a shotgun currently. I actually really just want a single-shot .327 rifle that will also shoot .32 S&W, .32 S&W Long and .32 H&R Magnum, but nobody makes one.

    Reply
    • From our testing and the feedback received. H&R have worked very well. Stoeger Tactical and NEF Pardner work very well according to customer feedback. We have had quite a few people say the Hatfield from Walmart works well. Also the Shotgun we use for testing 12ga is a Braztech by Taurus MOD.S121280. Hope this helps. We hope to have a better list in the future.

    • FedArm SS-12 is a great value. Imported from Turkey, folds in half, 20″ cylinder bore, stainless receiver. I’ve used mine exclusively with Chaszel adapters. Never actually fired a shotshell from it. No issues with 18″ adapters in 9mm, .45ACP and .327 Federal. Also 5″ adapter in .327, no issues. Check out FedArm’s site and order to ship to your FFL. It’s like an upscale Hatfield with a more reasonable barrel length for getting into adapters.

      I used my SS-12 recently and shot over a chronograph comparing 1.87″ LCR vs 5″ adapter vs 18″ adapter and ran the gamut from .32 S&W short up to .327 Federal. That 18″ Chaszel adapter makes a HUGE difference in velocity (and, thus, energy) for every round in the .32 family.

      • I took a look at the FedArm SS-12. Thanks for the recommendation. It looks like a great value! It’s on my list for my next purchase. Awesome!

      • Robert Teichman wow i just recieved my 327 mag 18″ chazsel adapter today but can’t get to the range for a while and with no chronograph anyway I’m really curious on the fps out of this beautiful “thank you Chad Waters” adapter. I actually have the lcrx 1,87 barrel and the 5″ 327 chaszel adapter and the 327 18″ Are you able to share the data?

        Reply
        • Good Afternoon Mr. Teichman, I can not find the fps test results we did on the 18″ but I will try to do some more soon. The 5″ version comes out at 1500-1700 fps according to our results.
          Thank you for your business we appreciate your support.

          • Unfortunately, my Chronometer wouldn’t save to my phone via cable and I didn’t have a pen and paper to document my session by hand. I shot a lot of different rounds that day from the entire .32 family. I can say that out of the 18″ adapter everything was way above the fps listed on the box or manufacturer’s website… Wish I had hard numbers to report. Maybe on my next outing.

    • i use the midland back packer 18inch barrel , i have the 30-30 and 45-70 inserts and can hit an propane cylinder every time at 100 yards using a bead n notch sight… i too think a 327 single shot is very handy gun …

  3. really, really wish you had some of the heavy barrel blanks in .45LC/.410 16 to 20″ long.
    I guess that’s likely low on your list though.

    Reply
  4. Hello,
    Do you have a ballpark estimate of when the 410 adapters will be back in stock, such as the 410 to .38spl, 410 to .22, etc.
    Thank you!

    Reply
  5. Is there a chance you could add a “Notify Me” button for out of stock items? I know that next up for me is 12ga -> .357Mag/.38spl in 18″ rifled. Definitely want to know when it drops so I don’t miss out.

    PS: Got a chronograph for myself and went out last Saturday to an outdoor range. Had a blast testing rounds from the .32 family (.32ACP, .32 S&W Long, .32 H&R Mag, .327 Fed Mag). 1.87″ LCR vs Chaszel 5″ rifled adapter vs Chaszel 18″ rifled adapter comparison for a wide variety of rounds. People are fascinated by what I can do with “Thumper” (my FedArm SS12) and your adapters. I always talk your product up for quality and value + lots of grins to use. Hope I’m steering some customers your way.

    • Good Afternoon, On the Product page where it says out of stock, below it is a button that says email me when available. You can click it and add you email to be notified when the product is back in stock
      (This has recently changed, it did say add to wait list). Thank you for you feedback and your support we really appreciate you telling people about us. It is great to hear that you are happy with you adapter.

      • I too am interested in getting my hands on at least one of these .45-70, 24″. I relize that there my not be too much of a demand for these or maybe there is…not at all trying to get into your business but why wait until fall?

        Reply
        • Good Afternoon, The reason It will most likely be fall is that we have other products that have been out of stock for some time that we have had a lot of request for. We will be listing more of the 18″ soon.

  6. Love the 327 federal magnum in 18” length for my 20ga slug barrel! I have purchased other barrel inserts but the new design is nice with labels of caliber makes for easy selection. Would like to also have a 41 magnum and a 10mm auto/40SW barrel insert for my 20ga in 18” length if possible! Thanks again

  7. Any interest in 10 gauge adapters? I have an older SXS that would benefit from 12 gauge adapters and possibly a larger caliber like 45-70 or dare I say 500 S&W? Also could the ten gauge possibly handle 3 1/2 inch 12 gauge?

  9. Hi- I have a 24 inch encore 12 ga rifled slug barrel. I like to get a 410 insert for it for turkey hunting. My questions, 1. Can a 24 inch 410 insert be purchased? 2. Are they able to be tapped for screw in chokes?, and 3. Can TSS be shot through them? Sorry for all the questions im just searching for my best option before I spend any money. Thanks for you time.

    Reply
    • Good afternoon, We do not have a 24″ version at the moment. Next time we make them we do plan on making a 24 and 28 inch version also however it will be later in the year before we do so. I am not sure what size tap is used for a 410 choke. TSS shot should work fine out of this adapter. Thank you for your interest.

    Has any testing been done with 7.62×39? Would love to pick up a 16-18in version.

    • i dropped a 165 pound doe dead in her track using the 45-70 insert with a 300 gr jacked hollow point you wont be disappointed with the results using any of chaszels inserts i got the 30-30 12 ga insert too im love these inserts so much.

    • I am looking for the 12 gauge to 45 colt adapter in 11 or 18 inch. Any idea on timeframe to make them again? Also I was looking at the ATI nomad single shot 12 guage. Any experience with these shotguns to know whether your adapter will fit? Or can I use my pump shotgun by removing the barrel to install the adapter?

      Reply
      • Good Afternoon Mr. Smith, It will be this fall before we are able to start working on the 12ga – 45 Colt. That adapter should work well with the nomad 12 gauge. I don’t have any experience with using adapters with a pump. Thank you for your interest.

      • @ Don Smith, Chamber adapters vs pump can risk damage to your extractor.

        I’ve gotten great mileage out of my choice for running Chaszel adapters, the FedArm SS-12. You may want to take a look at that one. Another import from Turkey. 20″ barrel, 3″ chamber and a stainless receiver. Folds in half neatly. Possibly made in the same factory(s) as the Nomad. I’ve used 18″ x 9mm, 18″ x .45ACP, 18″ x .327 Federal and 5″ x .327 with no issues whatsoever. Cheers.

  13. Good Afternoon, Just an update. We have the 12 and 20 gauge adapters back from finishing and hope to have them ready to list this weekend. This run of adapters are all 18″ chambered in two calibers. The 327 Federal and the 30-30 win. For the past 2 weeks we have been working on 12 gauge 45-70 Adapters in 18 and 24″ lengths. If all goes well we hope to have them ready in about a month from now. Thanks to everyone for your continued interest and support it is greatly appreciated.

    • We do plan on making a 10mm hopefully later this year. As for the others we still need further testing on the 50k+ pressure rounds.

      Reply
  14. Will you add replaceable chokes as an option?
    Will you add threading as an option? Such as threaded 22lr or 45acp.
    There could be a market for suppressors which fit inside a 12 gauge.

  16. Just wanted to give a heads up to everyone. The Last couple of weeks we have been working on some 18″Long 327 Federal Mag to 12ga and 20ga. In addition to those we are making 12ga to 30-30 Win 18″ Long. The 30-30 has been one of the most requested and they are coming along well. Hope to have some of both ready in about a month.

    • Good Afternoon, We currently do not have any of the 18″ 20 gauge 45 colt adapters. Although they will be fine at 20K and should be fine 30k but I would recommend keeping them under 30K. Thank you for your interest

  18. Good morning Chaszel, Everyone. I have been using your 410 to 38sp both 5in and recently your 18in. 18in 38sp insertion is of no problem, and dang they work very well “I LIKE IT” sure others will too. My question of though concerning we don’t know the measurements or have a way to measure if and or how much a tappered barrel could be, though I using the 38sp X 18in Adapter,.. (my question) -do you think your 410 to 9mm Luger would work for me too? I have been waiting on your list for your production and I’m ready to place my order now that you have them available. Whatya think?

    Also; wondering if you intend on having 410 to 22 Hornet adapters anytime at all or soon? (I’ll take two for sure) and my group/friends would likem too..

    Anyways, please let me know about the 9mm my question. (I think if I can fit the 38spX18 with no problem, that I’ll be able to use your 9mm adapter as well.

    Thanks for Everything

    • Good morning J.C.B thank you for your feedback appreciate it. Yes if the 38″ 18″ works so should the 9mm 18″. The 22 hornet is not in the near future but we do plan on making them again. Thank you for all your support.

  20. I have read of some problems with other brands of shotgun inserts when used in the Midland Backpacker single barrel gun. Have you had any reports of concerns using your product in this gun?

    Reply
    • Yes, We have a Midland that we use for testing. We do not recommend using these for high pressure rounds. However rounds such as 45LC, 45ACP, 410, 44 Special, 380, 38sp, 9mm, 32 Long, 32 Acp, 22lr and 22wmr have worked fine with the Midland.

      • I’m looking for an inexpensive break action which can handle higher pressure. What do you recommend? I almost bought a midland backpack because they claim to be strong.

        I have a CZ hammer coach. Do you recommend that for higher pressure?
        It would make an interesting double 45-70, firing 45-70 blackpowder or “cowboy” rounds.

        • Good Afternoon, At this time I do not have a list of shotguns that are compatible although we are hoping to get a list together soon. I can tell you that any Shotgun with a SB1 or SB2 shoud be fine.

        • Good Afternoon, I do not have a list of compatible shotguns for high pressure rounds however any shotgun with a sb1 or sb2 receiver should be fine. We have a Midland that we have tested with and form our testing it did not puncture the primer (which is the issue) on the 45-70 although it did deform the primer so I can not recommend it. The Shotgun we have used for testing is a Braztech made by Taurus MOD.S121280 It has work very well with every thing we have made. We hope to be able to get a list that is compatible soon.

  24. Happy New Year to all at Chaszel.. Say! I’ve tried contacting via your web page, but no joy. I guess Santa overlooked me on Christmas, but I have been good. I was just on ebay at your store and purchased another 410 to 38 adapter. My dad was impressed so I ordered him one. I really like mine and I’m really looking forward for when you’ll have to 18 inchers (even 12’s) ready in the other calibers especially those in 410 to 22 Hornets , 9mm and 38’s. Hope ya got over your illness to help bring in the new years. Have not seen any updates from you guys so i suppose the rest of us are wondering how everything’s going. (How’s it going?) Cheers to ya’s and have a great new year..

  25. I’ve bought two of your 18″ rifled .44 Magnum adapters in the last 6 months and was very pleased with both..I put one in a cut down NEF 12 gauge single shot which I sold to help finance another project where I put a rifled 18″ 44 mag adapter in the top barrel of a Browning Citori 12 Gauge over /under shotgun that I cut the barrels down to 20″. I’ll soon be buying another 44 mag adapter to make a double rifle out of my Citori.Your products are of very high quality and the accuracy was very acceptable Have you considered a 7.62 x 39 mm adapter for a 12 gauge? Or a .22 Hornet adapter for a 12 gauge. I’d be very interested in buying both if they ever come on the market. I belong to quite a few Facebook hunting and outdoors sites and I’ve mentioned your products quite a bit. Have you noticed any increase in sales ? Lol !! It’s amazing the people out there who have never heard of chamber adapters.As for me, I’m hooked !!

    • Thank you for the feedback, we really appreciate it. Also for spreading the word on Facebook. We have made a 22 hornet adapter in the past, Hopefully we will make some more next year. Thanks again and Hope you have a Wonderful New Year.

  26. Im going to need advice for my 12G.

    I want to buy 9mm and .22 adapters. If I have an 18.5 or 20 inch 12G barrel, should I not take an 18 inch adapter because of the adapter muzzle being so close to the 12G muzzle? I understand that a longer adapter is more accurate and speedy but right at the muzzle of the 12G may negatively effect accuracy. Or it wont matter?

    Also, in .22 adapters, if I recall, 1:16 twist rate is considered normal for a .22 rifle. You offer 1:12 and 1:18. Higher twist rate is more accurate, yes no? How do I decide? Also, if I take a magnum adapter, i assume I can also fire LR from it? Thanks.

    Reply
    • From all the testing we have done we have seen no adverse affects from having the end of the insert close to the end of the shotgun barrel. For the 22 cal we only chamber the shorter adapters with a 1-12 twist the Longer adapters have a 1-18 twist. The button we have is actually a 1-16 twist although it works out at 1-18″. a 22 LR will normally fire out of a magnum but could possibly miss fire due to the chamber being to large. Hope this helps and that you have a Merry Christmas.

      • Ok, fair enough, thank you. Also, since in the site you mention only a slight difference in FPS with the longest .45 adapter, would you say that would be true of the difference between 11 and 18 adapters in other calibers? It seems that so much is being accomplished with an 11 already, im trying to justify taking 18s. Help?

        Reply
        • The FPS increase from 11 to 18 Inch will vary according to the round. For instance a 9mm will only increase about 30 fps whereas a 357 will be 100+ fps. In my opinion it just comes down to preference. Hope this helps.

  27. I would like to see. 410, 12, or even a 20 gauge, to the hot 7.62×25 Tokerav pistol round, in an 18 inch barrel. Many people bought these cool little handguns, along with the cheap surplus ammo. I believe, that many, many, people, would second, this pick. I wonder how that round would perform, screaming out of that 18 incher?

  28. I have a shortened scoped H&R topper 20 gauge that I think would be really nifty to use as a 38-55/.375 Win. Legal for deer in Iowa now as is 45-70, and .444 Marlin. 18″ barrel would be fine. 11″ would do. My shots deer hunting are usually quite close from a tree stand. Do some experimenting with .444 Marlin too. I would prefer that over 45-70. Can you fire 44-40 in a .444 Marlin chamber?

  29. Good afternoon, Just an update on what been going on. We have been working on the 18″ 410 inserts. Although there’s more work in them than initially thought.

  33. Any chance that you could send some feelers out there, to see if it would be worth your while, to do some Tokerav barrel adapters 7.62×25. I am one of those people, that bought a few budget, surplus Tokerav pistols, and i would love to have an 18 inch barrel/12 gauge adapter.

  35. Yes! Would love to see more .410 adapters. Especially a longer version. 18″ would be like a small rifle barrel, very cool idea. Maybe some mid size ones of the more popular calibers like the 11″ shortlane adapters. Will probably have to get a couple of these when they’re done.

  36. The steel is on order for the 410 adapters, meanwhile this week we worked on 44 Mag / 44 Special Barrel liners. These liners will have an Outside Diameter of .620″ for the 6″ and 10″ and a .645 for the 20″ and 28″. Hope to be able to have some listed next weekend.

  37. The last week we have been doing some experimenting with longer 410 inserts. So far the results have been promising. If all continues to go well we may have some 410 to 38sp, 380 and 9mm 18″ long ready before Christmas.

          • @Tim,

            What you might want is to wait for a longer than 5″ version of 410ga to .327 Federal Magnum. That will chamber the entire .32 Family for you: .327 Fed, .32 H&R Magnum, .32 S&W Long and .32 S&W (short) – .32 ACP not really recommended due to dissimilar dimensions.
