    Plymouth Naval rifle.. New Liner

    I was wondering if there was anyone out there capable of installing a new .69 cal liner in an original Plymouth Naval rifle.

    Thanks
    Bill

    Cannonman1 - Since you are restoring an original rifle, I would be sure to ask Hoyt if he can install the new liner without disturbing the original bayonet lug mount.

    I think this bore will work..

    After cleaning, rifling is not all that bad. Bore is better then pic shows .. some pits but not bad. What do you think?Name:  attachment-1.jpg

    I'd shoot it and see how it groups.

    I am going to try Lyman's big minie with a 65 grain ffg powder charge. Will see if my shoulder holds up.. These rifles are unique in that they are the only rifle produced originally in .69 cal (as a rifle).. and they have a substantial wall thickness. Makes for a stout weapon when shouldered. Makes my .58 Cal Springfield feel like a featherweight. LOL.
    Thanks for your input.
