DUH. Talk about overlooking the obvious! Oh well--disregard most of
my previous post.

That is it right there. Thank you for your help, that also explains why there is no rifling, I just figured after sitting in the desert and with as much rust was in the barrel that it was destroyed. You my friend are a genius.
