I'm BENT on buildin me a .36 Seneca ever since i touched one a couple o' months back.
Found me a bare new unfinished with no furniture T/C Seneca stock and now i need a bbl for it.
Found a company,Muzzel Loaders Builders Supply that has 13/16 bbls in both .36 and .32(rubbin chin)
Only company i can find with straight octagon 13/16 .36 Bbls.

Anywho, anyone ever use either of these bbls ? How do ya like 'em ?

Got any Seneca pieces parts layin 'round ya wanna part with ?

If you don't mind bidding, you're sure to find some on eBay.
If not today, then there will be some tomorrow or the next.
The parts often get scoffed up by folks who want to rebuild complete Senecas.
Track of the Wolf may also have some of the necessaries since they build completed barrels that will fit the stock.

Thanx Steve. I actualy just came from the bay and they indeed had some Seneca furniture there.
I'm in the process of buying the stock and don't have it in my hands or i would have just gone for the BUY NOW and grabbed 'em.

I'll be going to TOW and other places when i'm ready for lock 'n such.
I'm really gonna try and make this a stone sparked rifle if i can manage to marry the right components.
I'm hopin to use a T/C Hawken flint breech plug and tang by machining them down to fit the Seneca stock IF the threaded diameter on the plug has enough meat to be able to turn it down to the proper diameter and thread size to fit the breech end of a .36 bbl.
If that will work,i'll then machine the flats from 15/16 to 13/16 and then hand file the tang to fit the Seneca stock.
Lock and trigger marrige to each other and then the already fully inleted Seneca stock will be challenging.
