I doubt any were ever available for this model off the shelf, but I have seen rifle barrel sets made for double shotguns. The ones I've seen were constructed bt cutting off a pair of shotgun barrels just in front of the hinge and sleeving the stumps. The .410 you have is too small at the breech for that.

Colt made a few .45-70 Double Rifles on their hammer shotgun frames. The idea didn't catch on and very few were made.

You might find someone who could make a set of barrels for you. It would be very expensive though.

I've recently seen a tutorial on converting an old .410 to fire the .38 special for use as a rook rifle.
A slimmer cartridge like the .357 Magnum wouldn't require as much meat at the breech for a conversion and might make a useful double gun for hogs in the brush or turkey. More accurate than .410 slugs at any rate. There have also been a few .410 loads available recently with a great deal more punch and accuracy potential than the old standby slug loads.

A combination like these would be more of a novelty than from any pressing need. I just like the idea of double duty guns.

Didn't Nurmrich sell 30-30 barrels for guns like this? They might still have a set laying around collecting dust. SW

The case colors on the receiver look niiiiice! I once had a 311 that was givin to me because the owner could not find a forearm. I found one in about a week of searching online, cut it down, polished the receiver to mirror bright and reblued the barrels with diy bluing solution I bought at Kmart (tells you how long ago that was!). I then had to polish the rust out of the barrels with sand paper and a dowel. Lot's of elbow grease but it looked great and I eventually sold it to someone else. First of a long line of ugly duckling restorations.........
