I inherited my Dad's barely-used Model 1400 about six years ago and finally got around to giving it a fresh cleaning and taking it out to shoot sporting clays. It's a beauty of an old gun, and what a nice shooting gun!
But now I have questions.
I think this would be a great dove and quail gun and I'd love to use Dad's old gun in the field. But, boy, that 30-inch full-choke barrel ... So, the questions:
Are shorter more-open choke barrels are available for these guns?
Could a different barrel mess up the action?
I'm also not sure if this barrel would be OK with steel loads for dove on wildlife management areas.
Anyone know about this stuff, or know where I could find out?
