    Adapters have been around for more than 100 years. I have a 40 year old 30 carbine in a 30-06. Mostly just a novelty item.

    My first time seeing it, I guess I need to get out more often...Pretty cool though that I can shoot a 45lc from a shotgun.

    At least these are both .30 cal. I dont know what good a .22 coming out of a 12ga would do any good maybe I'm missing something.

    Back in the 60s and 70s we saw a lot of used adapters at gunshows, many were quite silly and odd. Never met anyone who took them very serious.

    I've seen them on amazon. I think the only one I would run in a 12g is a 410. Seems like functionality isn't lost.

    got a friend that made a double bbl 12 gague into a 45-70 double rifle that is very accurate and has been regulated to 100 yds.

    I have a M\N adapter that allows me to shoot .32 S&W longs out of it. About the recoil of a .22 and the bullet is right diameter for the bore.

    I use to have a .303 british to .32acp adapter. Having to eject the adapter from the gun, then knock the case out of the adapter with a rod made for some very slow shooting. The bore on my enfield was pretty rough when I first got it too, so I got a squib and some very, very low velocities until I shot some more .303 ammo through it. Afterwards velocity was similar to what .32acp does out of a keltec.
