If you don't have a smooth barrel flintlock, send the barrel to Bobby Hoyt and have it made into a .58 smooth bore. That way you can still keep that beautiful gun and have the option of shooting round ball or shot out of it. I sent my Kibler Colonial .54 barrel to Bobby after building my .54 Woodsrunner and had it opened up to .58 gain twist and it shoots great. The .58 smooth will give you a lot of options.

No one can decide for you but if it was me i would keep it because you may want to hand it down someday and be proud that you built it yourself. i made that mistake years ago and regret it.
