Barrel liner?
« on: July 28, 2022, 08:08:02 AM »
If you have a barrel that was lined by Hoyt and have a bore scope would you take a photo of the bore for me. I’ve read a lot of praise of his work and would like to see one or more to help me judge his work.
Thanks

Kent, please excuse my ignorance with the following questions but I do not understand the significance of the information you are asking for and just what to understand.  1st - Aren't all liners supplied by supply houses like Brownell/other and then gunsmiths just bore and install what diameters are commonly available?  2nd - If not then I may understand a little better then - if this man makes his own liners - Does he?

If in fact, he makes his own liners at whatever diameter; number of grooves/depths; and twist rate as customers desire, then I fully understand your interest to see the cutting and polishing of his finished product as installed.

Or -- Are there other factors that I would be interested in looking at if having a barrel lined?  Like bends or curves or waves or off-center boring in the final install?

I have heard this man's name mentioned on other forums lately but have not search out to see if he has a website.  People just supplied his phone number to the questioning parties.

As reference, I had one rifle relined back in '93 and I sent it off to someone that was suggest by a friend and it came back great.  But that was a long time ago and I did not know to ask questions?

Thanks for the helpful hints, you could provide.

B. R. Smith, it’s my understanding that he does all the steps to the customers requirements. Or he can rebore a barrel to a larger calibre with the twist rate requested. He doesn’t have a web site or do Email as best I know. I was hoping to find out something more by seeing his work but have failed to find an example to inspect.

 I bought a trapdoor that the barrel had been shortened and relined by Hoyt. The inside of the barrel looks like a mirror, so it was tough to get a good pic. It is a shooter and I'm glad I bought it. Hope this helps.  Jw

Thanks Jack. How’s it feel when you push a tight patch through it?
Nice Gimmer, who’s work is it?

No tight spots. I shoot it with black and it's the easiest gun I own to clean up. I was told it was put together by John Bergmann out of Tn.  Jw
