I recently bought an under cut shotgun barrel from a surplus gun store for a reasonable price, it's 27" overall and is cylinder bore. Being that it was meant for a modern shotgun, there is no octagon on the barrel, but I have access to a metal mill, or if I feel up to it, a good set of metal files. I know its a little short for a full length fowler, but it should make a nice "canoe gun". Since at this moment I only have the blank barrel I will still need to get a lock, stock, and the rest, but as Christmas is only a few weeks away, my annual run to the local muzzleloading/reenacting trading post ( http://www.cooperstowntradingpost.com ) is coming up and I can acquire the needed parts there and get this build under way. I will post progress as it happens, here are some pictures of the blank barrel.
