I have a dream my friends, I have a dream!
My favourite gun, from the 8 in my cabinet, is my 26" barrel, 12g Greener GP Gun, it kicks a bit, being so light, and it's quirky but I love that beast, and it only cost me 50 quid about 8 years ago.
What I want to do is add to it's utility and end up with a pig gun into the bargain. The plan is to get a rifle barrel made and fitted, preferably in 45-70.
I have 2 questions;
1 How does it work legally, in terms of FAC/SGC? Obviously I will need to get a slot for a 45-70 on my FAC, but what then? I want to keep the shotgun barrel as well, so does the gun go on FAC as a rifle and a SG or does it flit between tickets depending on which barrel is fitted. Clearly, in licence terms, this is the same as having a double rifle that also has a set of SG barrels, so I'm after 1st hand experience of how it works please.
2 What sort of money would I be looking at for supply and fit of a rifle barrel and subsequent proofing? Also, any ideas who would be suitable smiths to do the job?
Thanks for any help.
