    If one were inside the gun making factory and watching shotgun barrels being made...

    Does the same machine and process which makes the bottom barrel of the over/under also make the top barrel of the over/under ?

    Does the same machine and process make the top single, the unsingle, and the over/under barrels ?

    In other words, is the process one of making a tube which at some early step of the process is identical and whether it becomes an unsingle, top single, or top or bottom of an over/under determined by later steps ?

    Yes, in some cases they do start out the same, but do you mind if I ask what difference you think it makes?

    Am looking at having a 34-inch over/under barrel set made by disassembling a couple of 34-inch top singles and reassembling them as an over/under set.

    Yes, all work will be done by a very experienced trap gun gunsmith.

    Yes, there is no practical purpose for this.

    Hammer1, if you do that you will have a set of very heavy, slow swinging O/U barrels. If your purpose is for actually shooting at clays, I don't think you will like them.

    ZZT,

    It never worried my good friend Mr Bat Thomas of Greenville PA. 44inch Doubles and 52inch Single, and thats 26pound of brass as his stock on his doubles.

    Big, Heavy and slow guns, but boy could that man shoot them, unfortunately he passed away this last February.

    He and Al Ljutic together designed and built his guns.

    Respectfully.....Release Trigger.
