Choke

Postby JEBar » Sun Dec 31, 2017 9:24 am

in researching Henry's 410 lever actions I have noted that the H018-410 with its 24" barrel come fitted for "Invector Style" choke tubes .... the H018-410R with its 20" barrel comes fixed "Cylinder Bore" choke .... in considering a 410 for my 9 year old's first shotgun, I prefer the 20" but being able to use choke tubes pretty much eliminates it from consideration .... any thoughts from folks who use a 410 .. :?:

I had a .410 years ago that I tried to squirrel hunt with. Found out real quick that it wouldn't reach the treetops nearly as well as a 12 or 20 gauge. And that was with full choke. A .410 in cylinder bore would be pretty helpless for hunting anything except bunny rabbits at very close range in my opinion. Can't figure out what Henry was thinking not offering both guns with choke tubes. Puzzling!

I can remember saying I'd never own a GLOCK,never own an AR15 and never get married. I found out that never is a long,long time!

Not sure I understand their thinking, either. 410s have traditionally be choked full as long as there have been 410s, because anything more open leaves you with too sparse a pattern. Choke tubes would be far more useful on a 20.
