I am a newer Newbie than you.

However, I think you'd get more feedback in the Shotgun Talk forum than the New Members Forum. I think this forum is just for introductions.

That's ok, we'll take questions from anywhere! I don't know of a 3' lever 410, but welcome to the forum anyway!
Correction - 3 inch, not three foot!!

Every reference that I have seen to the 9410 (and the few that I have seen) are 2-1/2 only, as were the Marlin variety - but I don't claim to be a fount of knowledge
I would think that a 3" cartridge would require an awfully long throw action as well as a lengthened ejection port.

The Alder lever action 410 will handle 3" shells. Made in Australia. Sometimes sold by Cabelas.

Henry, Marlin and Rossi all make Lever .410's...but 2 1/2 inch. They can be found at all the usual on-line stores.

My question is...what is wrong with 2 1/2 inch. I have shout tens of thousands of 2 1/2 inch at Skeet and Quail with more than satisfactory results. Honestly, if you are shooting something larger, you are probably under gunned with the 410 anyway.

The Adler ("Eagle" in several European languages) is a Turkish-made gun, not Australian. Australia actually wants to ban them due to high capacity (?).
