I had this rifle built years & years ago. L. Lancaster style X 38" X GM "B" wgt X .40. I recently sent the barrel (pitted bore) off to Bobby Hoyt for re-bore to .45. Got it back several weeks ago and what a fantastic job! Radius rifling X 1-56" with no-corner grooves that are much wider than the lands. Was an 8 lb 1 oz .40. Now a 7 lb 11 oz .45. It balanced like a dream in .40 and still does in .45.

I am waiting on my barrel. I sent it to Mr. Hoyt to rebore from 24 to 20 gauge. Should have it back any day now.

You'll definitely get back a lighter barrel. Cool

I got my barrel bag and it is lighter! I had to sand it down and refinish. The heat needed to replace the front sight causes a lot of rust. I made myself a new ramrod for it today.

The rust should be an easy fix. And the barrel itself will be a joy!
