Well, now that my dad and I bought a new stock and barrel for my brothers CVA Hawken, I was left with his old .50cal 1:58 twist 28" barrel to play with! It mounts perfectly to the mountain pistol, only super long.

I got plans to cut that baby down to around 16" and crown the new section of the barrel and see how she does. It should be a fun "Make my day, punk" black powder pistol when its done!

I'll have my hands full cutting new dovetails but hey, it'll be fun in the end.

Good bear hunting backup.

No, I do it the old fashion way with hack saw and diamond bit file to square it up. I did a rifle years ago that was pitted badly the first 8" and that SOB actually did excellent at 200 yards for as crude a gun it was.

That pistol kit I made was .50 caliber. It shoots a .490 PRB with 30 grs. of 3F and it doesn't kick. I think it has a much tighter twist though .. about 1:20.  I can't remember now exactly but it's a faster twist.

Well if you are ever in the need I have three lathes and a milling machine.
