.32-40 rifle relining


Tequila Vaquero #4624

Recommended Posts

My remaining antique rifle is a .32-40.  It has always had an oversized (.323) bore and I would like to have it rebarreled to the .321 specification.  Who might be able to do this correctly??

If your TITLE is correct and you want the barrel relined:

 

Perhaps Randy Redman's in Oregon.  You'll have to call him, as 32-40 is not a liner that he lists on his web page.

Or Run-n-Iron in Nebraska.

Wayne York:

This feller I have not heard reports about: Larry Romano

If you want a new complete lever-action barrel installed (like your text hints), then lots of gunsmiths can do a great job of it, but it depends upon what make and model you are talking about. 

 

Run-n-iron or York among these would be who I would call first.  Run-n-Iron does a lot of restorations so they know their way around protecting a valuable antique gun.

 

Good luck, GJ

  Good Day Mr. Vaquero

Hi Gerry, Try http://www.johntaylormachine.com, Their located up in Washington, They did my 38/55 Marlin and I believe Cognac Jack's Henry, Not cheap but they did good work.

I had Randy Redman reline my .30 Mauser broomhandle and my 25/20 Winchester 92 both were very well done but I don't think he does 32/40's.

If you have questions give me a call.

Talk to you later.

I contacted John Taylor yesterday about having some work done but he said they are in the process of moving and not taking any new business at this time.

I don't understand why you want the bore relined to 321 because the the original Ballard 32-40 bore has always been 0.323

 

Call TJ Enterprises to see if he will cut a liner to 321

I am checking with "winchesterbarrels.com." for a barrel for my 76.It was somewhat less expensive than relining.

Craig Rittenhouse is one of the best period, if not the best in the mid-Atlantic.
