.410s are a dangerous addiction. I started as a casual user and I now have seven of the little buggers. Two each SxS, O/U, and pumps, plus the dreaded semi auto. I am either evolved or hooked.

A gunsmith friend went through a very serious health crisis a couple of years ago and when he finally survived, he retired and bought a pair of guns he had always wanted: a Model 42 Skeet (appears to be legit), and another 42 solid rib field grade. Now he's spending large quantities of cash on non-tox for ducks with a .410.

Stevens 311? My first double. Wonder how those tenite stocks are holding up? Shot it only a year before picking up a Sauer Model 8 16ga for $35 from a WWII vet. Still shooting that gun 70 years lataer.

Vintage .410 doubles are ridiculously expensive. Modern .410 guns like the ones made in Turkey cost about the same as any other gauge, and are likely better built than the vintage guns anyway. The choice seems clear to me...Geo

I shot at Hausmann's last spring, with a member here, Stanley H?, and his son, and they had a beautiful ICD 410.

The son shot it mercilessly over me, LOL, and it was beautiful too!

If it's going to be shot, an ICD wouldn't be a bad choice.

Savage / Stevens 5100
Better stock dimensions than the 311 and a work horse.
Reasonably priced too.

Hey Clapper, the pleasure was all ours that day. Have been meaning to get in contact with you and see how you're doing.

The 410 we were shooting that day was an Ithaca NID Field grade with SST, Straight Grip, with a Beaver tail fore end.

Craig, I'm biased but I would recommend an Ithaca, NID, Lefever A grade, or a Nitro Special. The market seemed to be going softer on them in the last year, where 5 years back you couldn't find any NID 410 for less than $5,000.

Happy Easter, Stanley! Hope all is well.

My mistake, it's a lovely gun.
I hope it's being shot regularly, and successfully.
I'm guessing your son is much taller now. They do that.

Had some surgery,and since then, my numbers have been good.
So, a rich diet, and a life of adventure is more likely to kill me than Cancer, at the moment.
Life can turn on a dime, so I don't wait anymore.

That’s great to hear, it really impressed me how you were facing uncertainty of meeting your doctor about cancer and you decided to go do something you enjoyed.
Hopefully we can shoot at Hausman’s in June and we would enjoy sharing a cart with you and breaking some clay targets again.

May you enjoy your Easter,
Stan

If you are developing a severe hankering for a .410 double, there are quite a few in the upcoming Morphy online auction. You will need to wade through quite a few pages of military stuff, but the rewards, in terms of double rifles and shotguns, are definitely worth it.
