    I've tried contacting VTI gun parts (no response), and looked through several on-line sites for the ramrod pipe. TOW doesn't have them, and I'm not keen on TRS with it's wish-list. Ebay, nada. Gunbroker, Armslist, etc, nothing there over the last several months.

    Anyone on the forum who has cut down a Bess barrel and would be willing to sell the ramrod pipe (the one closest to the muzzle, not the others)?

    Gus, thanks.

    In the process of hunting for the part, I've also encountered an Indian source that sells repro parts for Indian made Bess's. I'm looking for a Pedersoli made part, to fit a Pedersoli musket I bought that was complete except for the missing pipe. (It was from an estate sale, and the person who removed it or knew where it might be was dead). I'm willing to wait for the right part to come along, rather than fitting a pipe into the stock that may look mismatched next to the other brass pipes.

    A last resort would be to follow Kit Ravenshear's lead in an attempt to make a Pedersoli Bess look like an F&I type.... <ack> ?

    I think I still have one. I had my Pedersoli short land cut down to make a non-pattern ordnance cavalry carbine some years ago. I believe I still have the parts in the garage somewhere. Might be able to find it this weekend.
