Don't know if it is suitable for anything other than small lead, but I think Winchester had a "plastic" barrel semi at one time. Model 59 or something or other someone will probably correct me on in the next post.
59Winchester had a thin steel barrel wound in fiberglass. Aluminum reciever. Made it in 12ga only. Experimentally ran a few in 20ga and 14ga!!! I carried one grouse hunting for years.

Model 59 Winch was the worst handling shotgun I have ever fired. Yes, it was light, but all the weight was in the butt. Pick it up with both hands and the barrels went skyward. Wretched gun to swing.
But when you had greenbreirs wrapped around your neck and sliding down a hillside to try to get to a psychopathic Brittany and a very nervous grouse, it worked out ok!Spuriosity wrote:Model 59 Winch was the worst handling shotgun I have ever fired.

I seen one but it was on a clay gun. I don't know how it would work. I remember back when Remington came out with light contour barrel I got a gun that had light contour barrel and one that said buckshot. Big difference in them in od of barrel.
