"they can't all be beautiful."  They also say "beauty is in the eye of the beholder", nice looking Ballard.

Joe, is that false muzzle rifled or smooth? If it's rifled in a rebore, it's gotta be some kind of trick work, huh? Neat rifle either way, I think.

Ya know, I wasn't thinking when I asked that question. Silly, silly me. Sad

Looks like a very nice working rifle to me
Wonder if the epoxy or solder extension is standard procedure for a re-bore.
Reamer and/or rifiling tool tend to leave a choke where it comes out.
Barrel makers usually suggest cutting one or two inches off the muzzle when fitting a new barrel.

Ballards may be weaker,
but they sure are neater!

Pretty cool Ballard! And nice that he saved the false muzzle and matched it up during reboring!

Looks like its a shooter. Looking forward to your BP fixed ammo results.

Tell us how you 'rung the barrel'. May save someone (me  Cool) else from doing the same.
