I have an early Fox CE that has a serious barrel bulge at the breech end. I'm thinking about selling the gun for whatever I can get. Is there a Potential liability issue selling the barrels even with full disclosure? Or should I pitch the barrels and part out the rest of the gun?
A CE is a nice gun, I would be looking for a set of any grade barrels to fit up to the receiver. It is foolish to pitch such a nice gun. If you are determined to pitch it I will buy it and provide a written statement that I will not sue !
An amateur's question: if the bulge is close enough to the breech could a longish chamber liner be installed and the old bulge struck off on the outside. Seems I've read Briley does this sort of work and I'm sure others. A call to Kirk Merrington would probably be worthwhile.
It ain't whether you hit a bird that matters, it's the fun you have even if you don't.
It's a 1909 12g with early style (Horne) ejectors. I have been looking for barrels with no luck yet finding a close fit. Also I have considered sleeving but don't see that as an option. Thanks for the responses and PM's.
Jason can certain sell you a graded barrel. It will be in the white and will need chambers cut, rib matted, engraving, roll stamping etc. It won't be cheap but it is certainly doable and you will be where you want to be in the end.
I think most of what Jason has are later run barrels but they should be compatible. I just fit a set of his barrels to an early graded ejector gun for a client and the ejectors were also the early style. Everything works. It is a huge job and the costs will far exceed the value of an average C grade 12bore. Best of luck with it. Steve
