Hey guys, a neighbor found this thing cleaning out someone's garage. Looks like a 1" x .54 caliber TC barrel in "rough" shape.

If anyone wants it for a project I'd be happy to send it to you for the cost of shipping. You can have loads of fun filing the flats and getting it re-bored to .58, or maybe cut it in pieces and make some smoothbore pistol barrels.

At least there wasn't a load in it.

How could you tell? Could you actually get a ramrod down that barrel?
