If Teague would even do such a job lining from 16 ga to 28 ga would make for a very front-heavy Parker.

Maybe Tony would make sub-gauge barrel sets for our Parker hammer guns...

I think you'll find that you'll need a bit of space between the muzzles when regulating. This is because of the wider spacing of larger gauges at the breach.


Thank you Chuck, I will get in touch with him and see if the cost justifies doing this.

DAM - Why would sleeving result in a lighter gun, unless the new tubes were worked down into some sort of tapered, funky contour?

No. Three grand plus is ridiculous to make a shooter. To lose every dollar of collector value is too much to sacrifice.

My 16 gauge has a blown tube just ahead of the forend so I either need to fix it or sell it. No collector value in my gun.

So how would sleeving effect value? Providing it was done properly.

Tudurgs, I think you misunderstood my statement (unless I wasn't completely clear) I meant to imply just the opposite - that such a procedure would surely add a great deal of weight to the barrels. Incidently, I specifically said "lining" not "sleeving" - two entirely different procedures.

I understand the difference. Sleeved barrels will start with 16 gauge outside dimensions at the chamber end, and, if they are going to end up lighter than lined barrels, the only way that can happen is to taper them dramatically, which I suspect would look weird

Many barrels I've looked at actually had 2 distinct tapers, then the last half was straight with no taper to the muzzle. The 2 tapers were somewhat blended.

I think some filing could blend a reduced barrel gauge nicely to a larger breach.
