    Barrel Identification

    I have an "artillery musket" with a barrel that was, according to the seller, a Bobby Hoyt product. The problem is that all the Hoyt barrels I've seen are marked "RAH." This one is marked "RH" on the breech; it's also a Patent Breech, and I've been told Mr. Hoyt didn't make Patent Breech barrels, so I'm somewhat dubious of the attribution. Anyone able to clear this up for me?

    Wonder if it was a hoyt lined barrel and not a full barrel or a hoyt rifled like they did for JRA?

    If I remember
    the guns that were done using Euro arms barrel blanks were patent breech.
    He cut the rifling in them.
