Any 12 to 20 gauage conversion stuff?

    That would work in a Mossberg 500?

    Unlike rifles and some handguns, I have never heard of anything that would convert a 12 guage pump to a 20 guage. 20ga ammo cost a few cents more across the board so I would not see a practical application.

    Too much of the gun would have to be replaced to "convert" it. If you want a 20 gauge pump shotgun, you'll need to just buy a 20 gauge pump shotgun.

    Let me rephrase: You can buy inserts to use 20g in a 12g.

    I realize that I couldn't use 20g in the mag and cycle it. But - do any of these work for ejecting with a pump, or are they only viable for break action guns?

    I am not sure they would work in a pump. This would be a question for the manufacture of the product due to rim cuts, chamber sizes and even choke would come into play and all those other veriables. Interesting concept. I think with the low cost of so many single barrel shotguns these days I would personally not even use such a device as I could most likely simply buy a single shot for near the same price such a product would cost if there was one.
