    Has anyone used the "Guage Mates" guage reducers? (ie, 12guage to 20 gauge). These are the short chamber tubes. Just wondering about serviceability and patterning. Thanks for any feedback.

    Jon, I did several years ago. Put them in a Browning Broadway and shot some doves. Not sure about the pattern though. I think I still have them around here someplace if you'd like to try them, let me know.

    I have a nice set of 20 gauge inserts for 12gauge. Bought them to shoot sub gauge in sporting then got more into trap. Kit ,orings,lube, removal tool, gave around $235, made by Seminole. I'd ship to you for $185, Jim Poor Texas Gun Works.

    YES. I often use a set of 10/12 guage in my antique Baker Damascus SxS. I've been very pleased with this product.

    One can improve the extraction process by using a dremel tool to grind a small half-moon notch near the rim/flange.
