    That is called "passing the buck." I am reminded of the vintage 1960 joke about how the U.S. planned to put a man on the moon -- just put him in a box, stick on some stamps, and it was the post office problem from there on.

    I just hope the gunsmith can do the job without messing something up; that is a valuable gun.

    Would freezing the gun loosen it?

    an ease out will work use them at work all the time we do freeze metal parts at work also to get them into another part and they expand after warming up that's why i thought of the freezer?

    The owner, rlee5349, said he is doing just that about 4 or 5 posts back. I'd like to see the gun once it is back together!

    That is exactly how I learned to install barrel liners. It is a one shot PITA doing it this way but its a superior way to line a barrel.
