I have several of the Enfields that were redone in 410. In all of the cases the mag well is blocked making it into a single shot. I believe that the bright idea was that if a guard was taken then the prisoners would only have a single shot and limited ammo and when the "good guys" showed up we know who would win real fast. 
Good info sharing in this thread.

The wood crate and the paper wrap package identifies these as .410 "Ball" ammunition, i.e. a single lead ball slug.  So, not shot she!!s.

Yes, same idea as the Greener series.
