About Product

The Model 42 Takedown shotgun-rifle combo is a must-have, survival, truck, camping and more gun! The firearm breaks down with a simple push of one button and includes an Uncle Mike’s Go Bag, so you can easily transport it anywhere. The Model 42 Takedown has an easy-to use break-action design that fires rimfire rounds from the top barrel and .410 bore shotgun shells from the bottom. The Model 42's short length-of-pull and light recoil make it a perfect starter gun for young shooters. The barrels are matte black to prevent glare and the sleek synthetic stock is weatherproof. The Go Bag features MOLLE loops for attaching other gear, a robust carry strap, and several pockets for ammo and gear. Chambered in 3-inch, .410 bore, the Model 42 Takedown’s 20-inch lower barrel enables the user to utilize widely-available 3-inch and 21-inch birdshot, buckshot, slugs, and the newest personal-protection-specific projectiles; as such, everything from upland birds to deer and predators are easily handled by the pint-size platform. Atop the .410 barrel is found another in .22 LR or .22 WMR equipped with simplistic, yet rugged, open sights; whereas the .410 provides close-range domination, the rifle round provides additional reach and precise aiming to bag distant small game for the pot or dispatch nuisance species harassing livestock or wrecking a field. Best of all, given their lightweight, .410 and 22 LR (or 22 Magnum) ammunition can be carried in bulk for extended use. The rounds’ universal obtainability is also unequalled, and their felt recoil is next to nil—perfect for novice shooters. As with the original Model 42, the Takedown and, especially, the Takedown Youth, are superb “starter” arms. It exudes the K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple and Straightforward) acronym, which is highly desirable for the novice shooter and survivalist. Pressing the breeching lever ahead of the trigger guard reveals the two chambers. Depending on the gun’s use and user’s experience, one or two rounds can be loaded. Then, snap the action shut, make the necessary hammer switch adjustment (to strike the correct firing pin), cock the hammer, and pull the trigger. Steps two through four can be repeated to utilize the second barrel. There are also no ejectors to break at an inopportune time or out-of-the-way location; simple extractors effectively lift the rounds (or empty cases) for easy removal. Simple—as it should be.
