    Cool thanks, I do want to plug up the ugly middle hole. I don't have a dremel, so I guess there is some needle file work in my future.

    Oh, yeah biggun, it's 18.25" but looks shorter compared to the proportions of a 12. Heavy as hell.

    Stuff some steel wool in that hole b4 soldering to catch some of the solder. Wait till you are done soldering b4 finishing with black magic or whatever finish you choose.

    Use a flat stone with even pressure on both barrels.

    I've not used solder before. Do I want to leave a small gap around the edge of the hourglass-shaped piece I am fabricating (for the solder to fill)? Copy that on the steel wool and flat stone.

    After you put the steel wool in the gap use lots of resin to tin existing metal. You may need to remove the bead on it to prevent problems. You may be able to get by with a good iron rather than torch on that metal.

    I'd like to prevent a lot of solder buildup that has to be ground off because I'm planning on taking the hourglass piece to be engraved to match the rest of the gun

    When doing cowboy action we used to fill in the gap with Brownells Acra glass gel dyed black mixed with atomized steel. I have a 12ga double that is done this way that has withstood thousands of rounds. Make sure you rough up the steel first. I used a needle file to get down in there about 2" deep.

    What are you planing to engrave on that space?

    It's a Spanish gun, so maybe "Adios"

    Actually still wondering, but it needs something. I like the epoxy idea. I can rough up the inside, fabricate the piece longer than it is wide, have it engraved, stuff in steel wool, and then epoxy it in. I am starting to like this site! Good ideas!
