    Just picked up at a show. Over & under with 12ga barrel and a 20ga barrel.

    Question is 20ga has 3" stamped on barrel, nothing about using 2 3/4 shells. Can this take shorter shells?

    12ga is stamped 2 3/4 so this is clear, only short shells.

    First over & under for me and just thrown off by what seems like restrictions in the 20ga use of only 3" shells?

    Lyes a 3" shotgun chamber will accept shorter shells.

    Just had to ask, due to seeing flange step inside barrel where it would stop wrong length from seating. Concern was mostly shot from shorter shells hitting this flange and??? Never was able to view this flange so clearly before.

    I've seen shotguns marked 3" that would not work with 2 3/4" shells. It was a semi-auto and I don't remember the brand but it belongs to a friend of mine. It will not even load a 2 3/4" shell.
