Speaking of 20s,are there any rifle barrels available??A buddy has a 12 and is looking for ANY barrels he can find.Thanks for reading this.Oh by the way,I recently picked up an ELI WHITNEY 36 cal. pistol that is interesting.Has the original holster and a few other accessories. It came with a ZULU shotgun,and a muzzle loader the family said was used in the civil war. It is huge and HEAVY.Doubtful unless it was a sniper rifle. If anyone is interested,I'll add a couple of scans next time.
The one I have is a converted muzzle loader from the early time period. I has an action rather like a trapdoor but instead of lifting up is attached to a rod on the right side and the block swings to the right and back to load.I understand that they bored the rifling out so that the NATIVES could not shoot long range slugs at the white folks. Heck of a note.Who would want to kill the Brits who took over their country??I'm trying to figure out this Gallery and expect to have a few pics posted soon.I have a floppie taker so it should'nt be too hard.
That colonial era stuff is extremely interesting. The Brits also converted some Martini-Henrys to fire a special 14 ga for Egyptians. Had a 3 prong firing pin that wouldn't work on anything else. Another failed gun control attempt!! SW
