Mills, why go to the expense of chamber work and honing? The tubes will be what you are shooting out of.

Here's the link to the Teague lining article https://www.vintageguns.co.uk/magazine/barrel-lining. Quite a few issues are mentioned. Steve Bertram was the US rep for sending barrels to the UK to have them lined.

Talked to Briley this morning. To fit my 16 G hammer gun, they machine the tubes to fit the bore. Chambers have to be 2 & 3/4 inch, tubes index depth on the front of the chamber. Fitting 190 dollars over the cost of Tubes. This is not needed on a number of modern factory guns, others it is needed. Short or full length tubes same work required.

May get a 3rd opinion on my barrels . If posable watch the method used and examine through the bore scope myself.

Do what I would do and tell Briley to k/m/a and install the tubes in my barrels. $190 to bore out my chambers is ridiculous.

No way would I have anyone bore out my chambers. I’d keep the original barrels and find and fit another set that I have more faith in.

Thanks guys for the comments. Just wondered because the gun that I saw and shot was a great piece of work. Too bad they had problems. As Garry said, "It was a nice solution"

My barrels are shot, according to several known experts, otherwise I would have looked at other options.

I took mine to the Southern and got opinions from several of the best experts. They all pronounced the patient dead though. That would be a good option for you. In your case, you have shot it without problems and may be you just need to keep to the lowest pressure.
