2" across flats??? What the hell is this a cannon? Most .50-.58 cal. rifles are 7/8" across flats...

I assume you are looking for two different barrels -- one for a Sharps reproduction and another in 1.75 - 2.00 inches across the flats for a bench gun. My dad has an old 40 cal. X 1.75" X 42" in a bench gun that will shoot the lights out. Today, I'd contact Green Mountain Barrel Company for both. They do great work, cater to the custom builder and they have value pricing (not cheap but high quality for the $). Hope this helps.

2" across flats = 4" barrel, never made; but with info he can see what's available (could you imagine trying to put a 4" inch thick 32" long barrel on a horse for a couple months back then - hah, you'd of killed 'em, but then you wouldn't been able to pick it up to sllide it into the scabbord either)!
