Shotgun Barrel straighten
Anyone have the tool? I may have a job (have to look at it first), of straightening the barrel of a side-by-side and fixing the stock. But I don't want to bite off too much.

Thanks, Dan

My smith uses an arbor press, and a couple of blocks of oak.

I don't know the extent of the damage, yet. The stock fix should go easy. Wood dowels, glue, careful with the clamps should do it.

C3, has your man done a side by side? I wonder how that could affect the solder.

A SXS with bent barrels ? EYAH! Let me guess- did this involve a truck tire? Yes, a SXS would add a number of factors over just a pump or auto. Will see him next week, will ask him.

Don't suppose that Viagra would work, huh?

Just found out that my supply was counterfeit from China. :)
