So, I have been down for the last two weeks. Had my Gallbladder removed, still healing.
Anyway, spending lots of time on the Web ordering things and thinking of projects to do.
Got some new Arch Punches for cutting out patches, a couple new RB molds/handles, new nipples and more.
Found fairly local guy with a Lyman GPR .50 Cal 1:60, he bought it years ago and only fired a few rounds.
Checked the serial for the recall, it is not on it, it is made before 2017.
Started looking at barrel makers and Rice seems to offer a barrel in the specs I would like.
Rifle is my Investarms Hawken, barrel specs would be .50 cal., 30", 1:66, .012 grooves, square bottom rifling.
Sent an email but going to call tomorrow see lead time.

Sounds like you're doing some good planning during your down time. Hope you heal quickly.

Well, going back to work didn't help.
Came home today with another T/C Hawken. Very good overall but bore is rusty.
Looks like another Rice barrel candidate or rebore by Hoyt.
Going to meet up with a guy Sunday to look at the GPR and a friend said he would help me build a Hawken kit.
He has lots of experience and builds nice rifles from scratch.
Looking at TOW and Pecatonica kit's.
Any input on the two kits?
