Does anyone make such an animal. So far the quickest twist I can find is a 1 in 48"

I want to shot sabots and conicals

Thanks

The Lyman Great Plains Hunter has a 1 in 32" twist barrel. You can also get an extra barrel with a 1 in 60" or 66" twist for round balls.

I checked out the rifle you mentioned, but the 32" barrel is a bit too long for me.

I am looking for something shorter and less tradtional.

Then again, Bobby Hoyt of Pennsylvania (Freischutz Gun Shop) can always rebarrel any gun to any twist you want.

You know that is funny, I would not even think twice of rebarreling one of my bolt actions, but never considered it for a flintlock.

Thanks to all who have helped me with this.

God Bless
