Hi everyone,

I’d like to build a wall gun. Something like the Rifle Shoppe’s British wall gun - only difference being a rifled barrel.

Do folks have any suggestions of where to go to procure a barrel? Apologies if this is a newbie question, but maybe Rice does custom barrels.

Thank You

I got a couple 4 bore barrels from Oregon Barrel. Expect about a 9 month wait. Not sure of they do barrels long enough for a wall gun.

Sorry, the barrel is not rifled but I'm sure Bobby Hoyt in PA could rifle it for you

Ed Rayl of West Virginia may be able to make one.

There was was a wall gun at the Kempton fair last weekend. Guy watching the pieces said it was probably a 4 bore, about the size of a golf ball.

Here in UK where they were a lot more-used than in the USA [your lack of castles and defended manor houses might have something to do with that], wall guns were not 'freely mounted'. They either had a mounting bracket, like an oar-lock, on the wall parapet, or a spike that went into a pre-drilled hole.

In that way, the crushing recoil of shooting a 4 ounce ball over 500gr of Fg would be somewhat reduced...

Some even had a flat-bottomed giant sling swivel that simply rested on the wall top - still VERY painful to shoot, though.
