Hi RB,
No, I did not screw up the barrel inlet. It was for a Brown Bess barrel. The skinny barrel placed in the barrel channel demonstrates how big the Bess barrel is. It is 1 3/8" across at the breech. Like I wrote, I have plumbing in my house smaller than that barrel. Actually, RB, the round Bess barrel is much easier to inlet than an octagon barrel.

I think you had some of us checking our credulity quotients there. What a gullible bunch.:doh:
