I have a 4-1/2" stub of 45 revolver barrel I cut off my Remington when I built my snubby. But you already have a 44 caliber barrel. I should have a like piece of 36 caliber revolver barrel from my '51 Colt snubby. Hmmmm, I'll have to see if I can turn that up. Interested in that?

.36 cal should be fine, thanks. I have .45 and .50 pieces already.
Was looking for a .390 bore so that .380/.375 RB's could be used.  {L*

Or a .35 bore so that I can use those Hornady 00-buck at .33 inches across.

I tucked that piece of barrel away so good that I haven't been able to find it!

OK, out of the four five pistols (yep 4 5 now) none shoot better than hitting anywhere on a 12 inch target at 30 feet.
It would be really nice to find some .40 cal rifles pieces, so's that I can use .375 or .380 RB's.

Whoot!  M__  (T^

Actually, considering the original of this type of pistol were intended to be used at card table range, hitting a 12 inch circle at 30 feet isn't really all that bad.
