The fellow who does my lugers "Brooms" etc. freezes the linners to a very low temp. They are then inserted in a very close bore. You can not see a joint.

Bore the muzzle end of the barrel to 7/16 inch to a depth of about one half inch. Make a bushing which is 5/16 ID to fit the liner and 7/16 OD to fit the bored muzzle. When the liner is in place, insert the bushing over the protruding liner. Once your glue sets up, you can crown the barrel and the joint should be virtually invisible. GD

A couple times I have drilled only from the chamber end and stopped just before the muzzle. Then nothing shows at all on the muzzle.
Just walking on the edge of of my grave.

Hiwall to late for that, besides the drill is only 15 inches and had to drill from both sides.

Greydog I really like that idea, if I had a lathe I would persue that I think that would work.

At this time I guess I'll look into the aluminum powder.

Thanks for the ideas, Tom
