    I've seen a couple sell here over the years. I think cubancigar2000 and SuperXJeff have owned them.

    We had Jim Eyster make a big bore for our 682 top single.

    It completely turns targets inside out, but know a guy in Nashville that completely ruined a 391 by having someone over-bore, port, and God knows what...he traded it off.

    My 303 has one and I love it. Had to shave ever so little bit of wood on the forearm wood to get to fit.

    I have.. and shoot a .800 bore Baker..Remington 1100.. I gave $700 for the barrel with 3 chokes.. years ago... Nothing like it... It like alot of shot at long distances.. and performs well with as little as 1 oz.. The gas guns will not work well with a .800 bore and 24 gram... but my Perazzi O/U with .800 bores shoots them well...

    By the way.. the .800 bore Perazzi O/U was what gave me my nickname..in the trap world.. First time I ever shot doubles in a regestered match was 500 rounds.. Bad trigger and all.. I managed to hit 85%.. and a few 2nd shots were at the fenceline.. A memorable day..

    I sold one for $500, then had trouble getting $350 for the rest. If I remember correctly Stan charged me about $450 to build the 303's

    Tracy, don't worry about your M32 bbl. I shoot one all the time with .745 bore and Brileys. I bought a K80 bbl.at the Grand years ago, bored to .753. I took it to Krieghoff first to see if safe. They said OK. Then I went to Briley to see if they could screw choke it, they said yes. I shot FITASC sporting with it, choked .017 & .023, but too loose for flyers. I had Briley put in choke tubes and it worked fine. Mind you, these were fixed choke bbls, not extra heavy s.c.bbls.

    I sold a like new remington for near 1000.00 not long ago and a friend just bought a 303 and he paid 500 and was happy to pay it.

    Do you have any idea what it cost to have a rib installed? Over 300 dollars. That is just for a rib. Guys have bought whole 303 Big Bore barrels on this site for less then 500 bucks! If you go to have one built you have to provide them with a donor 303 chamber. Even a junk 303 barrel will cost you 100.00. So Between the chamber and the rib you are in the barrel 400 dollars.

    If you can buy one used for 500 bucks you will have saved yourself a whole lot of time and trouble. Now... All you have to do is find one. Jeff
