They will need to be 28 G which suits me fine

I have a hammer 16 grade 2 that is Briley tubed to 28. It also has Briley screw in chokes in the 28 tubes. It is a great shooting gun. I will have my Lindner 16 hammer gun Briley tubed to 28 in the near future.

Just asking.

Bruce, I read that there were problems with the adhesion method/process of the liners, and that the it is no longer being done. Someone else here I'm sure has a more detailed answer. It sure was a nice solution...if it worked.

I heard they ruined a number of barrels by cutting right through them at areas that were thin to begin with.

There is an article in Diggory Haddock’s online gun journal about Teague tubes posted a few issues ago. As per above, there were adhesion, separation, and corrosion issues if I remember correctly.

I would check with Briley to make sure they do not alter the existing bores.

John Davis 07-25-2021 02:02 PM

Although a moot point now, I have a C grade lifter that I sent to England and had the barrels Teague lined. Never had any issues.

The DH article is in the June 2017 issue of his online journal. He mentioned someone in the US licensed, at that time, by Teague. I wonder who that was.

Mills, Briley will do to your bores what you ask them to do. They don't do anything to my bores. Kolar, conversely, insists on lengthening the forcing cones. Kolar tubes are not for vintage guns.

Mills Morrison 07-25-2021 08:07 PM

They told me they would lengthen chambers and do some honing. I went along, but these barrels will never shoot again safely without sleeving or tubes
