For many years I have wanted a flintlock fowling piece to go with my T/C New Englander 12 gauge percussion shotgun. Well I found an unfired (and discontinued) T/C Pennsylvania Hunter .50 flintlock. My gunsmith assures me that he can ream it out to become a 28 gauge (.56 cal.) and perhaps even a 20 gauge (.62). I just want a flintlock that shoots shot loads. My brother has a T/C smoothbore barrel that was made for use in the Massachusetts muzzleloading season that might fit. This is my summer project. All the best...

Should work out for you but be sure that the breech plug area doesn't get changed. Also if I'm not mistaken a .54 will accept 28ga wads so I think that if you went to .56 it may be a bit large in the bore. Just thinkin don't have the exact measurements. Good luck on the project. Cool

I would be *very* interested to hear how this goes along with costs. I have an old .50cal hawkins barrel I've long since wanted to get turned into a smoothbore. I just never found anyone who could do for a reasonable amount of money.

If you decide to do this I want lots of info!!! (I'd bet $100 my brother would do it too with his old .50 cal barrel as well).

I just checked the bore diameters and a 28 gauge is .550" and a 20 gauge is .615". My gunsmith is backed up with work, but assures me the cost will be reasonable. My guess is it will cost less than $100. I will keep you folks informed. All the best...
