Hello, I have a Husqvarna model 20, made in 1942 stamped M. Serial number is 175590. Was this originally made to shoot smokeless powder? Just curious. Thank You.

Absolutely.

That a 12 or a 16? Just curious.

Be aware that it has short chambers.

I don't feel like typing all that again, so go here and read the second post.

I've got six pre-war 20th Century Husqvarnas. A mixture of 17s and 20s. Four 12 gauge and two 16. They ALL have "shorter than 2 3/4 inch" chambers.

Your options are to buy short shells (they are available, but expensive), load short shells yourself, or have the chamber lengthened.

I had that done on my first Husky. It's nice that I can shoot "off the shelf" ammo, but it annoys me that I modified it. I did it when I was younger and dumber.
