The option that you mention would be the one I would use if I could find a suitable barrel at a reasonable price. That's why i was looking at the Mosin barrels , 30 inches long and 311 - 312 bore, the problem is getting it to Australia.

Thank you oldriflenut, I just learnt something.

And a Mosin barrel is 30 inches long? I have a cunning plan......

Oh no! A Lee Mosin??

A bit of reading for you, have been doing a bit of reading myself, it would appear that the Russian and Finnish barrels were not chrome lined after all.

Interesting rifle. Some Lancaster records still exist, I had a look through some of the ledgers a number of years ago.
The guy who bought the company or name does not seem to have an internet presence but if you can track him down the number on the base of the trigger guard would make the rifle easy to look up in the ledgers, giving the date it was sold and perhaps the price, along with the purchaser of course.

I had my BSA 32-20 Martini barrel relined by Kieth Bridegman at Sprinter in Adelaide last year . It is a factory 32-20 chambered barrel I wanted to preserve the factory markings .Kieth did an excellent job , the liner is undetectable , and the rifle shoots very well . Barrel lining is not his normal work ,but when I asked him he said if the barrel was unique he would do it .He manufactured a rifled barrel blank and used it to make the liner.

Great old gun with lots of history. As other's here have said, "If only she could talk...". Good luck with getting her a new barrel.
