So, I took a chance and bid on a rifle with intentions of having it rebored by Bobby Hoyt to a larger caliber. It was described as being a newer build with a Tower lock. Upon arrival, It looks like its possibly a very old .45 1" oct. barrel with Tower lock, roughly set in to a 1960's stock. The bore has great rifling, but the bore at the muzzle is off center a bit. The lock is sweet though, operates smooth, and throws tons of sparks. So just a few questions...1) would there be anything wrong with getting this bored out larger? 2) can you re-center the bore a bit while reaming it out? Any value to the lock?
