resoldering old double barrels
I'm looking for information on how old double barrels were soldered together
including the top and bottom ribs. I'm in the process of restoring an old
percussion 12ga. double barrel. I've done my share of working on old guns
but have never had the opportunity, or misfortune, to re-solder the barrels
and ribs back together. The gunsmiths in my area I've talked to all gave the
same reply, "I've done it, or tried it but will never do it again!" I'm not afraid
to try it I just don't know how it is done. When finished the gun will probably
end up being a wall-hanger anyway; but I still want it to look nice.
Any advice or resource information would be most appreciated.
I'm rather new to this forum and not sure if, or how personal responses can
be made. If permissible feel free to contact me personally with information
and/or resources or procedures.
Thanking you in advance.
