I've been reading all the bunny gun threads recently and have really been bitten by the bug. I've been discussing it with a buddy at work lately and we've mapped out a few possibilities I'd like to run by the experts as to which would produce decent results.
I've got a Marlin CB in .32H&R and am a longtime devotee of the H&R so I'm looking at the H&R or maybe the .327 although I think the operating pressure may be a limiting factor.
I'm working on a pretty tight budget for this project so I'm trying to go as cheaply as possible. I was thinking of picking up a Rossi “Matched Set” with the barrels in .410 and .44Mag and having one of them relined to the desired .32. Is this something that has any merit? Anybody have any insight on the platform? An H&R Hand-Rifle is another option if it's a better platform. I've got a Topper in .410 but would have to have another barrel fitted to be relined as the .410 is a keeper.
Any Gunsmiths that come to mind to do the reline and chamber? While funds are limited, I know a good gunsmith is worth his fees to have it done right.
Thoughts on the project would be appreciated, feel free to take it in a completely different direction too, I'm not married to anything yet.
Thanks to all.
