Is it possible to rebore a pitted CVA percussion barrel to a larger caliber and if so...who does it ?

Bobby Hoyt. I don't have his contact info but someone will chime in soon with the particulars.

He's real busy, be prepared to wait quite a bit.

Here's a picture of the muzzle. As you can see there is quite a bit of pitting at the end, although the rifling is still apparent.

Had him reline a 58 cal for me. Sweet job and a nice guy to talk with. Look for 6+ months as patocazador said

Thank you for the info. I like 54's, so now I have to decide whether to get a new barrel from DCP and leave it a 50 cal or turn this into a 54.

I like the .54 ca too, have both them and 58's.

I have a 56SB that Bob Hoyt re-bored to .58, great job.

eeeek!! That is some pretty darn good pitting in there. I'd say Hoyt would be worth the wait. Refinish the stock and trim while its away.

Appears gun was shot w a synthetic propellent and not adequately cleaned (previous owner?). Re barreling or boring will be a waste if propellent and or maintenance stay the same.

I like that description, the previous owner sure did a fine job! I've been told that it looks like Pyrodex pitting. It's only pitted badly like that for about one to one and a half inches into the muzzle, the rest is mild pitting. I put four rounds through it...it shoots okay at about twenty yards, then it's like rust oozes out and requires a week of cleaning. What I like about opening it up to a 54 is that it will still be all original on the outside.

It will be lighter too in the right place.
