Where can I find a on line picture of the Contender .410 pistol?
Hey folks If I understand correctly this is the only Emphacise ONLY legal shotgun Pistol. It has interchangable barrels and is available only in .410 as a shotgun.
It’s the chambering that makes it legal. Firearms designed to fire multi-projectile rounds, (i.e. shotguns) with a chamber diameter in excess of 0.41 inch (i.e. anything bigger than a .410), must have a barrel length of at least 18 inches. .410 is and is not a shotgun round, depending on which part of the US federal firearms laws you are reading.
I’ve seen several .410 handguns over the years, including a derringer I once owned that would cnamber both .410 and .45 Colt cartridges.
Maybe, but you can buy shotshells for in variety of handgun calibers.
Here’s some forf the 38 Special/.375 Magnum.
I lived with a guy who had a special anniversary edition Derringer-type pistol that could hold two .45 Colt or .410 shells. It was about five inches long, tops.
Naturally, we called it the Hand Cannon. I don’t remember him ever firing it.
Heh. I just remembered this nasty little sucker. The picture here is of a Navy Arms reproduction of the civil war era LeMat revolver.
.40-.42 caliber 9-shot revolver with a cylinder that rotated about a .60 caliber smoothbore cylinder pin. The cylinder pin was loaded usually loaded with grapeshot. Ouch!
Here’s a photo of an original in a different caliber.
Couldn’t find it from your post Unc but I found it at CTDs website http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/ctd/ammo_results1.asp
Go to their website and select handgun and 38 special It will list ammo and about the bottom of the page it lists shotgun
