Bobby Hoyt does rebore but depends on size across the flats.

Depends on how big the barrel is across the flats. 13/16 and 7/8 definitely no. 15/16 maybe, depending on sight and tennon dovetail depths. 1" yes.

Bobby Hoyt will fix you up if he can. When you call, let it ring. He will shut down and wait until mchine is stopped before answering. Mail it. He does it when he can, and will invoice when he mails back. Then you pay him.

I would guess @ $100.00.

Re: Flintlock rebore?

Thanx!!


1" green mountain.


It's a 50cal fast twist..


I may just keep it as is...barrel is unfired...

Long stpry short of was sort of an impulse and I ended up building a rifle...or...am building one...

Barrel is probably worth more than I paid for it.. so figured I could rebore it..


I don't know...pretty torn on what to do...maybe leave it as is and hunt with it till I build the next one...it'll make a nice hunting barrel and the fast twist will stabilize a heck of a conical..


Boring it out will leave it lighter too...boy that 1" barrel feels heavy lol...
