    As the 28/410 are both built on the same "frame" (receiver and forearm ), -they are interchangable---However the forearm barrel channel will be larger on the 28.
    If your putting 28 wood on a 410--no problem other than a slightly larger gap between the barrel and forearm. However if your putting 410 wood on a 28 you will probably need to open up the barrel channel in the forearm to accomodate the larger OD of the barrel.

    Thanks Bob. So you think that the larger 28 ga forend on a 410
    barrel would not be an issue??

    The 28 f/e on a 410 will have a bit of a gap--but not a serious issue--after a few days you probably won't notice or care(and most people would probably never notice the SMALL gap. Just one point, when you install the f/e make sure the wood is centered properly and does not slide against the receiver (it will wear and mark the blueing). If you see any indication of contact (between the f/e and the receiver-even a slight marking) sand or file wood off the inside of the wood forend. Remember when you pump. you will slighly twist the f/e--so "test it" by mounting and pumping --like you are shooting skeet doubles (heaven forbid)---great guns--never need a repair--and will outlast "ANYTHING !
