Default Wanted for Hire Barrel Project or Stub Project

Here's what I need. I have an old shotgun barrel blank.

It was for a double barrel shotgun. Just one side of the double barrel.

Its the correct size for a 24 ga shotgun.

I want to hire someone to make me a handi shotgun barrel out of it or even a stub barrel.

Muzzle ID is .574 all the way thru to the chamber. There is not a chamber cut for the shell.

Barrel thickness is .069-.070 At the muzzle.

Barrel thickness is .062 at the chamber.

26 1/8" long

OD at the breech is 1.081

Has an underlug.

ID at the breech is .577

Smooth bore end to end.

I would like it to be a full choke if do able.

Also if anyone has any idea to also make a 32 ga barrel let me know.

Would one of you craftsman be willing to do the job and approximatly what the cost might be.

I don't want to hurt any feelings but I will limit the person to a regular here so I know who I'm dealing with.

Let me know if you want to take on the job and what I would need for supplies. (Barrel donor etc.)

Thanks Tom

This may not belong here but received not response on the shotgun forum.. The craftsman are here on centerfire section.

I watched a video of a gunsmith using heat/hammer/Vee-anvil to put a choke in a shotgun barrel.

I have also read about "Jug" choking. it is supposed to work VERY well, and keeps the CYL bore for slugs
