Default Recommendations for having barrels restored ?

Im trying to find someone who can do barrel work If I decide to have my barrels sent somewhere . Not just refinishing but some other little things worked on as well . I know a very good sxs gunsmith but hes currently backlogged 5 years and isnt taking new work . Im trying to find someone who knows damascus barrels and muzzleloaders . I dont think Bachelders works on muzzleloaders . Just looking for a good recommendation on someone who I can ask about the work .

Why not call Bachelder and ask them if they have ever done barrel work on damascus barrels for a muzzleloader? You could also call Track of the Wolf (MN?). They sell and work on ML’s and might be able to direct you to someone who does that type of work. There are also several forums for traditional black powder enthusiasts where you might find a resource.

Well I messaged them on their facebook page as their website doesnt seem to be up . They read the message but didnt respond so I figured that means they dont do work on muzzleloaders . I guess I can ask on the muzzleloader forum but seems like alot of the guys over there are shooting reproductions .

Hello Milton,
Sorry about the slow response, I looked at the message late on the weekend and forgot to get back to you.
