1884 Trapdoor with slight bulge ring - questions

910 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  mcgoo422000
How much of a concern is an 1884 Trapdoor with a slight bulge ring visible inside the bore about an inch forward of the front barrel band?

Would this affect accuracy much? I'm not really worried so much about safety (or should I be?)

Thanks for your opinions and insight.

My friend has said he has put drill rod of proper diameter in barrels before and forged them back to correct size or real close .
don't now if it will work or not ?
