I have a 1929 European market A5,That has a couple of small dents in the barrel. I will not shoot it as one of the dents looks to have the start of a sympathetic bulge starting opposit the dent.
Shotgun has seen use,but is in pretty good shape. Numbers match,so i would like to have it fixed.It is not something i plan on shooting a lot,but would like to be able to fire it once in a while.

Any gunsmith recomendations? I live in N.Florida and would ship. I have been hesitant to just drop it off somewhere,and would like to find someone highly recomended to perform this kind of work. I thought this would be the best place to ask.

Any recomendations would be greatly appreciated

Contact Mike Orlen (moderator here), I'm sure he will have to see the barrel first but I will definitely vouch for his work. .....Jack

Did you happen to see this?
This is from a previous posting of mine here.

A barrel dent can make a sympathetic bulge appear on the adjacent sides of the dent by causing a localized pressure increase that finds an avenue of relief, if the barrel material is thin enough. Some people may try to shoot out a dent, thinking that a shell can form the metal back out into place, but then the metal has other ideas that they didn't consider.

Naturally, I have some photos to show a little of dent removal.
First, the dent(s).

Inside: before (see 2)

Left dent, inside view

See left dent is practically invisible

Outside: after

Inside: after dent removal, hone, and choke tube installation

How does that look?
