Old Damascus Shotgun Barrel Bore Diameter
I have measured several 12 gauge L C Smith damascus steel shotgun barrels and several 12 gauge Parker damascus steel shotgun barrels in the past few years and I have found 12 gauge bore diameters in these damascus barrels to be anywhere between 0.724 inches and 0.755 inches in diameter. I have found both barrels of a set of 12 gauge damascus barrels to be the same diameter every time. It appears that the shotgun barrel smiths that finished these damascus barrels always tried to keep the tubes matched up...... Good Shooting To You All, Jent .... posted November 23 of 2018.
