The Awesome Adapter for Your 12-Gauge Shotgun That Turns It Into an ‘Ultimate Survival Rifle’
TheBlaze.com ^ | March 27, 2013 | Liz Klimas

In an extreme survival situation where the appropriate amount of ammunition for the type of firearm you’re carrying can’t necessarily be guaranteed, what would you do? Carry multiple types of firearms to increase your chances of coming across ammo you can use? You could do that, or you could have an adapter system that comes in a handy pouch that allows one 12-gauge shotgun to take 11 different types of ammunition.

The creator of Gear Up’s X Caliber Shotgun Gauge Adapter System, Tim Ralston, told TheBlaze it’s like carrying 11 guns in one.

Nothing new. Been around for years. Shooting a rifle cartridge from a 4-inch barrel ain’t really that great an idea.

This is a product by the moron that shot himself on YouTube. I think I’ll avoid his products. Besides, I can make them for under five bucks each - easily (and that is rifled). Unrifled, it would be a buck, at best.

American exceptionalism at its finest!

Lots less expensive than the Co--Pilot

I love my rifle/shotgun. You can change the barrel for either 22 rifle or 20 gauge shotgun.

$200 at Walmart. If I run out of ammo for one, can just replace barrel for the other.

The bag to carry all of those adapters would weigh 50 lbs.

You can go to youtube and watch a guy shoot a 50 BMG in a 12ga shotgun. It stayed together and went through 4’ of water. A 410 shotgun can shoot 45 colt and these same guys on youtube loaded up a “special” 454 casull and blew the 410 up. There are adapters to shoot 32 auto in a 30 caliber. There are lots of fun ways to wreck a gun and may be even enter you in the Darwin awards group.

I doubt you will see any 1000 or even 250 yard bucks with these, but as a handy dandy survival or trail gun it could be a winner. Interchangeable barrels have been around for single shots for many many years, but this is pretty novel. I would love to try it. 500 bucks and a 200 dollar shotgun? Could be worth it in fun, if nothing else.

Looks like a perfect SHTF solution to having multiple firearms if forced to travel and scrounge for ammuniton.

I wonder if there's any single break barrel shotguns which can accomodate a scope?

Amazing when you think about it. The Co-Pilot is based on a 150 year-old design: The Henry Rifle that Abraham Lincoln first test fired during the Civil War. The Henry Rifle led to the first Winchester, the Model 1866.

If it comes to that, you must realize, I hope, that we're all hosed already.

The only "bugout" to consider is your own domicile.

I'll bet it is similar (if not the same) as the one I have. Rossi .22/20 ga.

Before ammo became hard to obtain, I would say, just buy some more ammo!

Solution in search of a problem. Takedown rifles were very popular an common in the first half of the last century. I have a Savage 99 takedown in .300 Savage (between .30-30 and .308) made in 1939 that is deadly accurate to 200 yards with iron sights.

Thanks, I actually watched that episode. He didn't follow the rules.

Here's the (nearly former) shotgunner I saw the other day.

Holy crap!!! I’ve not seen that knucklehead before - thanks for the link. It is amazing how many people are willing to look down the barrel when they get a misfire - it never ends well, that guy was very fortunate!

A guy that works at my local range likes to ridicule some of the weekend ninjas that show up from time to time - you can always tell when he starts to talk really slow, drawing out his words and states “Keep your booger hook off the bang button........”
