A few weeks ago someone had a blued Optima Elite muzzleloader barrel for sale. He was wanting to sell it because he had gotten a compact stock, and it felt out of balance. I e-mailed him about it, but found out it was blued and lost interest. I can't seem to find the thread anywhere. If you still have the barrel, and if it is still for sale, please contact me. I may be interested again. Thanks.
