Default Barrel for a 1864 Springfield?

I have an 1864 Springfield 2 band "Artillery" rifle that needs a new barrel. It's short, 34 5/16" from tang to muzzel. Any ideas where to buy one (!) or have one made?

Thanks.

Dixie Gun works has these but they are complete rifles.

Option two is to get an original (Nepal) Enfield 1853 barrel and fit your stock to it. These barrels are in very bad shape unless you get the more expensive untouched rifles.

Either way you don't have very many good options.

The mid-barrel was cut out and replaced with wood, so no. Thx.
