TJ's has muzzel loading liners in 45 and 50 with a 1 in 48 twist, 7 groove. Phone # 859-635-5560.These are hammer forged out of 4130 steel and are smoother than a button barrel. I install his liners in cartridge guns often. He makes liners from .17 cal. to .50 cal.

Mike Sayers is owner and has always treated me fare. He sells the liners by the inch so you are not buying more than you need. If you need help with ideas on how to put a liner in you can e-mail me at john@johntaylormachine.com

I am looking for a .54 cal. with a slower twist. Any suggestions for this?

John it would be neat to see the process of how this is done on a muzzloader barrel. Any way you could do a photo howto? I sincerely doubt many would be able to do this with home tooling without a lathe etc, but it would be nice to see it done. Just a thought!

First off, TJ's only has 45 and 50 cal. liners for muzzle loaders.
I use a lathe and piloted drills to take out most of the metal. Then I use a reamer that has oil pumped through it to get .002" clearance over the liner diameter. Sometimes the liner needs to be turned down so there is some wall thickness to the old barrel. The liners are held in with Loctite. I tried solder but it is a pain and changes the color of the barrel and the acid can take the finish off the barrel. Most of the time liners are used to keep the original lettering and finish of the barrel. If I do my part right you will not be able to tell there is a liner in the barrel from the muzzle end, it's a little harder to hide at the chamber end on a cartridge gun. Muzzle loading barrels are a challenge because of the threads for the breach blug, need to keep the old threads if possible or end up making a new breach plug.

Thats about what I thought the process would be ... I do have a couple of questions ...

1) Do you use the standard red Loctite to install the barrel, and if so how, much of this stuff do you use in this process of one barrel and liner?

2) Do you completely coat the liner in this stuff, and how quickly does it dry?

I am curious about this aspect of the process. You must have an economy sized drum of it around some where!

Thanx John

Davy
