PostSubject: Barrel replacement   January 27th 2016, 10:09 am

New to Frontier Muzzleloading
I would like to replace the 45 cal. barrel on my CVA long rifle with a 36 cal. barrel. I haven't been able to locate a barrel yet, but I was hoping someone on here could point me in the right direction and offer some guidance. Thanks

Jimmer

might try Rice barrels, Petoconia(sp) River barrels, Sitting Fox or Deer Creek muzzleloading supply in Indiana I think they are sold out though..
They are really hard to find unless custom made..

Another thing is to have bobby hoyt install a barrel liner in .36cal. It will be a hell of a lot cheaper. If anyone has hoyt's info please post it. I believe this is the best way to go.

I have only read good things about his work. However, he is usually backed up several months.

Do you just get on his list and send the gun when your number gets close?

You don't have to send the gun/barrel to him and wait a year?

Muley and I are too old to wait a year. Our descendants might get it instead of us. Wink

He ties up the gun for a year? Doesn't make sense.

I guess he'll never do my barrel.

you might try calling him and asking him if you could do it the other way... he may do it that way and I didn't ask.. he just told me to go ahead and send barrel with a check for the amount of the job and he would mail it back when finished...

Guys I just talked to Bobby Hoyt and he said if you will get your barrels to him to be rebored he will get on them immediately, he just had to move his shop and hes behind in cash flow and any jobs that only take 3-4 hrs hes doing immediately.. So theres your answer if you eant them done quickly he said get them into him now.. Call him and get a price quote and then send your barrel with check or m.o and instructions what you want barrel rebored to..
 Hope this helps guys..

Thanks dbowling!  I'm thinking of asking for a re-bore on one of my barrels to a slow twist .58 cal.

I need information please.

I have a badly pitted .45 cal barrel that is 7/8ths inch across the flats at the muzzle.

How large could this be bored out and still be safe?

I just talked Mr. Hoyt.  He's going to re-bore my 28" .54 cal barrel to .58 cal slow twist.  He recommended either a 1:60 or maybe a 1:66 twist but no slower for the .58.  He's charging me $100 and that includes shipping the barrel back.  Prices go up for longer barrels.  He said he is busy but for these small jobs he could get it done in approximately 2 - 3 weeks. 

Like dbowling mentioned he did move his shop and I corrected my previous post with the new address.
He just moved….New “street” address listed below: 
 
Robert A. Hoyt
2379 Mount Hope Road
Fairfield, PA. 17320
 
(717) 642-6696

Can't beat the price. I'm tempted, but money is tight right now.

I guess he's got enough work now. I just called him and I got a machine saying he'd be open Jan 11th.

Muley,
its Feb 1st, he probably accidently left that message on there sometimes you have to call back 2-3 times in one day to get him.. he's running lathes and barrel machines and they are loud so he doesn't always hear the phone.. he's obviously wanting people to send him the stuff or he wouldn't of said to..

Maybe he said Feb 11th. All I heard was the 11th.

At least he has a machine now. 2 years ago I called him every day for month, and he never answered.

First thank you guys for your advice and suggestions on going from a 45 cal to a 36 cal on a CVA long rifle. Just got off the telephone with Mr. Hoyt. He is going to sleeve the barrel and down size the length of the barrel to 36 inches. Since I only live about 45 miles from him, I am delivering the barrel to him,the end of next week. He gave me a price of around $150 to do the work plus, change from flintlock to percussion. I will let you know how this works out.
