    Mines heavy because its 7/8 across the flats. Meant for target shooting.

    That's a heavy barrel for a .36. I have that has a trap barrel, a.36 barrel and a 20ga barrel. 3 minutes and they're changed out.

    Folks: Please stop the idle chit chat. This is a FOR SALE advertisement.
    Questions about the gun are acceptable but others telling us what they have, has no place in this topic.

    Hi Dave,
    It says the barrel appears to have had a breech plug in it at one time (I assume this would have been for a sidelock, is this a potential problem or is it pluged and then drilled on the bottom for an underhammer?). It says has been lightly draw filed (what does this mean?). There are no dovetails or machining to barrel (How would I get this done, this is referring to the rifling?). The price looks great but please walk me through the steps once I buy the barrel.

    Thanks, Mike

    Actually, the lock is part of the receiver, no fitting is required

    You are absolutely correct. But if done, the UH is the easiest of all builds to accomplish.

    Well, for whatever it's worth, either an under hammer isn't a muzzleloader, or it does have a reciever(also called an action in ye olde days)

    No lock on H&A underhammer, just a mainspring/trigger guard, trigger and hammer, which is in the "receiver". that's the beauty of the H&A underhammer. It's much simpler that other muzzleloaders. Easy to fit a blank barrel to. Just screw in the plug, put it in the receiver, and drill the pin hole or set the three set screws.

    I don't know why this gun hasn't sold yet but I hope it does. Way too much talk and not much action out of our members IMO.

    The nipple isn't part of the "lock", which you said needed fitting. The nipple is quite simple to drill and tap.
