The only difference is the magazine. The ones for the 410 hold 10 rounds and (no surprise) the ones for the 411 hold 11. Either magazine will work in either gun.

Thanks gvaldeg1, but why does the slide on the 410 look so flat on top and the slide on the 411 look so round? Are the slides different too?

If the situation between the 411 and 410 is the same as between the 915 and 910, the 10-round version of the 9 mm guns had a plastic guide rod and sights and less complex milling of the metal parts than the earlier 15-round model. I don't have a 411 or 410 but I would guess similar changes occurred.

The 411 and the 915 were pre-ban guns and basically were early 5904 or 4004 guns with the older straight blade rear sights instead of the Novaks. The slides were more rounded and they had all steel parts, came with one mag to keep the costs down. With the AWB they did revise them some with simpler machining, plastic sights, guide rod and some small parts and shipped with the 10rd mag.
