Got my barrel back last night and put her all back together.The barrel was done by slufoot. The gun is a cva stainless 45-70 that I mounted a nikon 4.5-14-40 on. Gonna run some rounds through her this weekend.
I appreciate the help from some tndeer members as I was deciding which direction to go.
Steve

Awesome. You won't regret it. What powder are you gonna shoot? I just got mine lined up a few weeks ago and shooting 60 grs of H4198 with a 195 gr Barnes.
