    Default lever action shotguns

    ...and off the usual track, does anyone know of a lever action shotgun that is NOT an 1887 Winchester or a copy of one?

    I had a moment of curiosity that turned into one of those circular Google-timewasters, and haven't found anything yet. Surely *someone* else made a lever shotgun?

    Rossi makes a 410

    410Ga Stainless 20"


    DESCRIPTION
    TECHNICAL SPECS

    Now there's a Rossi rifle in the popular 410 shot shells caliber. The Rio Grande offers accuracy, performance and practicality for a lifetime of fast, lever-action shooting. Authentic buckhorn sights and a beautiful hardwood finish make this model look like the classic, but the new Rossi design performs like a state-of-the art rifle. Available in blue or stainless steel, these hard-charging lever-actions provide for shooting fun. Fully loaded with the latest Taurus features for safety and reliability.

    Well, altho not technically shotguns, many if not all of the old time trick shooters used some smooth-bore lever action rifles for their moving (thrown) target shooting. Annie Oakley, Buffalo Bill, etc.
    Other than that I cant think of any.
    After thinking on it I suppose they would be technically shotguns, wouldnt they?
    And a rifled shotgun would technically be a rifle.
    Now my head hurts.

    I think the Winchester was called the 9410. I ordered a ChiCom lever 12ga that I haven't recieved yet. Already have an 18" Norinco SXS. My guys and I have been doing a lot of shotgun stuff ever since .223 and .22lr became scarce. They took to it nicely and really enjoy it. Can't wait to shoot clay pigeons with a gun designed over 125 years ago. Gotta keep the new guys ol' skool.

    Clicked on the link. Neat looking gun. Gunsamerica has a bolt action 12ga for sale with the same style and looks.

    I'd never even heard of "Kessler" before. That's a very interesting design... a bit chunky looking with the box magazine, and "different", but not in a bad way.

    Rossi needs to hire an English speaker for their web page. I'm guessing that's one of their .444 or .45-70 models, tweaked a bit to handle .410 shells; it would be very simple to do.

    I need to read up on lever action mechanisms some more. I'd read that they're extremely sensitive to ammunition length, and if the bullets aren't seated just right the lifter will get a wedgie. But shotgun shells are all over the place in overall length!

    Thanks, guys!

    While not a repeater, the Ithaca model 66 is technically a lever action, in a break open single shot!
