    Contact EM Precision in Spruce Grove AB. They do custom barrels. They're more into the precision long range game, but it's worth a shot.

    Ron Smith produces barrels for old timey cartridges. I haven't personally used one but have heard some impressive reviews on his gain twist barrels.
    For my 45-70 project I went with a Green Mountain tapered octagon barrel and it's a very nice quality tube.

    It’s a solid set up, I lucked out purchasing someone’s stalled project , he had sold the original barrel, lost interest and there we are. It’s an 1878 Argentine , full wood, was Arsenal refinished and imported into the US after the second war as far as I have it from the PO.
    Although , it was pretty spendy ! So I’m now saving for a barrel !
