OK I know I have sugested the idea of takinga stock 410 Saiga an adding a rifled barrel in .410 an useing brass 410 shells in 2.5" and then seating .410 calibur bullets or slugs out of the case like a rifle round. it would be very simular to the 444 marlin but with more case capacity and would/shpuld use a standard Saiga 410 3" mag . this would avoid the mag issue Tony at Tromix had on his 444 marlin conversion. ( there was a thread on this from when I had the idea a few years back when I was working on the still on the back burner 444????? and the 444 rimless marlin.)
ANY HOW i GOT A BUG UP MY BUTT TODAY AND STARTED RESEARCHING RILFED 410 BARRELS AND FOUND THIS VERY INTERESTING SITE THAT MAKES BARRELS AND AMMO FOR A THOMPSON CONTENDERS. THEY SHOW AROUND ALMOST EXACTLY LIKE IM TALKING ABOUT.
THIS SHOULD BE A SIMPLE REBARREL OF A 410 SAGIA JUST IT WOULD HAVE TO STAY 18" TO BE LEGAL.
HERE IS THE SITE LOOK AT THE AMMO OFFERINGS AND THE GROUPS. THEY SHOW A PRETTY COOL MAUSER BUILD AS WILL. THEY AHAVE LOADING INFO WITH SPEEDS AND ENERGY CALCULATIONS AND THERE ABOUT WHAT I FIGURED.
THEY SHOW RELOADING DIES AND SPECAIL CRIMPERS ECT.
NO THEY DONT MAKE A BARREL FOR A SAIGA BUT THEY DO LIST WHO MAKES BARRELS FOR THEM. THERE CHAMBER IS PROPIETARY BUT IT CANT BE THAT HARD TO FIGURE OUT AND OPTIMISE FOR THE ROUND iD WANT.
HERE IS THE LINK I NEED A 410 RIFLED BARREL THEIS NEED TO BE BUILT. sAIGA 410,S ARE REASONABLY CHEAP WITH BARRELLESS KITS IN THE $350 RANGE THESE DAYS. RE-RECIVER A DEMILLED SAIGA AND YOU COULD MAKE A PISTOL OUT OF ONE OF THESE IF THE BARREL IS RIFLED.
