I was in a gunshop this morning,and found what looked to be a Long Tom .303,converted by BSA into a single shot .410,it had a 2 1/2 " chamber and was in great shape.I had a handle of it and it was a really nifty little gun,just the thing for slotting rabbits in the vege garden.Are these somewhat common?.Its the first one I have seen,anyway.

BSA made a .410 shotgun that was not a conversion. They used a Long Lee bolt with safety on the cocking piece. Receiver and barrel were one piece as I recall. If there is interest, I can dig it out and photograph it. They are certainly not common in the US.

That is the one,the safety was on the bolt and the barrel/receiver appeared to be one piece, but on closer inspection the barrel was brazed or soldered into the receiver I think,however it is so neatly done its hard to see this.
