Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Do you have an example you could add from your collection?
No - the one I had has 'long gone' and been replaced by a Savage No4 Mk1/3 in 410 calibre.
As you can see the No4 Mk1* has been 'struck out' and (almost invisible) has No4 Mk1/3 etched above and to the right along with the FTR markings, it was subsequently 'bored-out' to 410 calibre (modern 2 1/2" plastic cases)

There's a good chance I missed this, but I have one of the No. 1, Mk. 3's that was rechambered for 3" 410. Is it safe to shoot the Musket rounds in it, or is it strictly a modern 410 gun now?

The plastic modern .410 is slightly larger than the brass shells. I am not sure how much expansion will occur to the case due to the enlarged chamber walls. I would just fire .410 slug ammo.

There's been a pretty good looking Enfield grenade launcher rifle for sale at one of my local gun shops for quite a while, but the price isn't cheap ($599 IIRC). I haven't been by in several months, so it could have sold by now. I've got several .410 conversions, but they've all been further modified to accept modern ammo, so I'm still searching for the unmodified .410 conversion that uses the original brass cased shells.
