Hey Everybody! I picked up this 1905 4th change in 32-20, 6" barrel, adjustable sights. It's been "around the block", but locks up tight and is mechanically very sound. All in all a nice old revolver that would be a great cast bullet project for me...EXCEPT: the barrel is totally " roached out"! As you can see in the picture, there is a deep circumferential gouge all the way around the bore about an inch from the muzzle. I have no idea how someone did that! The rest of the bore is no peach either. Anyway, would this revolver be worth the cost/hassle of re-barreling? Would anyone out there happen to have a barrel they'd be willing to sell? Any other ideas about sourcing a barrel, or thoughts about the possibility of having a liner installed?
Thanks in advance. I always value and appreciate your expertise and input!
