I have a muzzleloader barrel that has been fired and not cleaned for some time. The kid (21) used it at the range (over a year ago!) and never told me that it had been fired and put it way without cleaning.
He's lost his inheritance now...
The spent 209 primer is firmly in place and won't budge and I fear the inside of the barrel looks like the little shop of horrors.
It's a very rare Hastings paradox muzzleloader barrel that mounts on my 870 Remington. They stopped making them years ago.
Any ideas how to get this thing professionally refurbished? I called Hastings days ago and apparently they are blowing me off.
Anybody experience anything like this? Can it be saved? It's pretty fouled.
