My husband is a retired collector of antique firearms. He primarily has Civil War carbines, although he does have a representation of other antique arms as well. He has a Springfield conversion (flint to percussion) that was a Bannerman special. Somewhere along the line, concrete or cement (?) was put into the barrel and he is trying to remove it. Sadly he has had a number of strokes and struggles to communicate and also to recall all of his gunsmithing skills. Does anyone have any ideas?
