Having never tried an adapter of this type, I was excited when the 12ga to 38/357 adapter arrived. I carry a 4" K-frame revolver loaded with 158gr LSWCHP ammo, and wanted to try this load out of the adapter. with My break barrel 12ga and this adapter, I can target practice without the shoulder pains associated with the powerful 12ga recoil. Although the rounds seem to keyhole every shot, they tend to hit pretty much where I point the bead on my 28" barrel shotgun. I am planning on buying a few more in various calibers, and will opt for the rifled versions, as I understand perform better. Short Lane, thank you for fun,versatile, and entertaining products.

This is a great adapter, does 38 special and 357 mag with no problems out to 30 feet, could do more if I had the time to really test, just to much fun at this range and coming back for more, like the 9mm rifled, great product and quality, recommend all around.

Bought my 12/38 adapter last Fall and after a long Winter finally got to try it out in my ole H & R Topper 158. What a blast it was to shoot. Also very accurate at 25 yards. Best Fun I've had in a long while. Will try other adapters in the future.

I have not gotten to fire this adapter yet but I also own the 45acp, 9mm and 22LR smooth and rifled barrel. They are all fantastic values for the money. Accuracy is not outstanding in the smooth bore models but adequate for most tasks. If you want accuracy, buy the rifled models. For under $25 they are and excellent way to have a multi caliber survival firearm. They are also useful for checking if reloads are in spec. Just drop your rounds in the adapter, if they chamber in it they will chamber in your pistol.

Very happy with the adapter. As accurate as a snub nose revolver. Really expands the use of my shotgun.

Once I got this adapter clocked it was just a matter of seeing what weight bullet it liked best. At around 15 yards 180 gr were grouping at 4 inches. I switched to 158-160 gr and the groups went to 2 inches. I am very pleased and no surprise here, another excellent product from Short Lane.

These adapters are well made from top quality materials. Slip in is so easy. They look great and shipping was super fast and free. I am a well pleased customer.

Good product sturdy as expected snub nose accuracy. 50 yards over all these short lane adapters are excellent products. They turned my 12 gauge single shoot into something much more exiting. And it lets you escape the massive recoil of 12 gauge slugs.

This thing is by far the best value and one of the most useful tools you can own for a break action shotgun. Shots minute of rabbit accuracy to 25 feet and beyond. Don't let the lack of rifling or the "barrel" of the adapter being so short fool you. Velocity's are close to a snub nose 38 with better accuracy since you have a longer sight radius. I own the 45/410 adapter also and use the 410 to flush squirrels out of nest or to get them if i don't have that clear of a shot, but if one is sitting on a open limb I don't hesitate to pick him off with a 38 special 148 gr wadcutter. You cannot go wrong with short lane adapters. And customer service and communication is top notch!!
