Wm. Hobaugh made the barrel. I bought it as a barreled action. I believe he put it together. I was told by some who knew him that his barrels were rough as a cob but they shot real well. This one would be a good example of that.

Never heard of him but I've seen a lot of SMOOTH barrels that didn't shoot that well.....Rich

Well it is alot smoother on the inside now.
It makes it seem like I should spruce up the outside a little, looking a bit drab.
