Barrel Makers and Suppliers
I spent a little time yesterday entertaining myself by chasing down all sorts of Muzzleloader related links. I went from one person's links page to another, checking out the different craftsmen, and the suppliers people use. You would be surprised how many folks are out there doing something ML related. Having been in the Blogosphere for several years, I'm not surprised by how many dead links there are too. There are some businesses and people that have multiple references/links on top shelf sites that have disappeared.
Anyway, since I can't blog from where I am at, I thought I would do one of my usual things, and track down a certain aspect of the trade; in this case I decided to work on the heart of a muzzleloader, looking for Barrel Manufacturers and Suppliers. I've also included some that I can't find a link to, but maybe some of you might have some information on them to add.
Please feel free to mention any other barrel manufacturers or suppliers that I may have missed.
And speaking of missed, don’t miss the Black Powder Suppliers Post
and Lock Makers and Suppliers.

I did not have an oportunity to check them. Some of these I am certain are modern barrel makers, or do both. As I have time, I will ascertain what they do and add them to the respective sections.Taylor Machine
