That's a beautiful project.

And if that's you standing on the trailer fender in the first photo, you have really been at this for a long time!
Grandson! Started it at about age 38 I think, now 64.
The little guy on the trailer loves "welding". He turns a mig torch into a sparkler. Hilarious to watch. Loves the garage!

McMillan used to build Sharps clones. I bought this barrel from them in the late 90's. I turned the thread, tapped the action and voila, it fit nicely.
It's 416 SS, 32", 18.25" twist, 45 cal.
At this point, no chambering. Will not be used in BPCR competition.
I could stay with 45-70 government. But I could chamber in something else. Will have to do a lot of research and look for brass availability. Probably 5 candidates to work with. Not sure which way to turn, but I have 500 qty of 45-70 brass. Might be best just to stay here.
Opinions welcome.
