Default Need a gunsmith to bore out rifle to Smoothbore

Wanting to have a muzzleloader taken from rifled to smoothbore. I'm in the process of getting a rifle in either .50 or .54 and would like to have it bored out to either .54 or .62, depending on what I get and what can be done safely. Are there any gunsmiths in CA or in the Central Valley who do this kind of work?

Just get a long reamer and do it yourself. Or just rebarrel what you buy. https://www.trackofthewolf.com/list/Item.aspx/655/1

Doesn't seem like the kind of job I'd want to do with a hand drill. TOTW barrels would work if I had already bought one of their rifles. There are people who do this in other states that I can ship to. But I'd rather do business locally -- even if that's just somewhere else in CA.

I was the guy they called when you took it to Half Cocked in Clovis. What exactly are you working on? I can do it for you, depending on the existing barrel dimensions and outside features. I have done many relines for antiques in various calibers.

PM me and we can go over it.
