410 contender barrel

I am looking to buy one in 12 or 14 in with bead or rib and bead. Anyone have one and know what the best shell combo seems to be with them. I will be rabbit hunting with it mostly. Also where does the best price seem to be on a new on, because I cant seem to find a used one anywhere for much cheaper then a new one.

Thanks for any info

Check out Gunbroker. There was one on there a day or two ago for a buy it now of 199.99...Have you ever shot one ? 10" is much handier than the longer barrels. I had a 12" and now a 10" and much prefer the 10".

Everyone I have talked to said the 10 in doesnt through as good of a pattern thats why I was looking for the 12 or 14. I agree would be much easier to carry. What shell are you shooting? I have heard the 2 1/2 are shooting better then the 3's.

Re: 410 contender barrel

I have a ten inch barrel that I got for $185 shipped. Best place to get one is in the classifieds section of Graybeards Outdoors forums. If you are not familiar with the site check it out. Just make sure you read all the rules b4 posting b/c they can be a pain over there.

I have not patterned mine with 2.5" shells but it shoots just fine for me with 3" #6. I have not taken a rabbit with it yet but I have taken 2 pheasants, a grouse, and countless squirrels.
