Presented is a .500 Linebaugh shotgun to rifle conversion I've finished up. It started life as a 20 bore shotgun, then converted to the .500 Linebaugh revolver cartridge for the client to hunt driven deer in New York. It was also restocked by me using a stunning piece of Turkish walnut!

WARNING-beginner photography!

Shotgun barrels were cut off in front of breach to form a monoblock.

Beautiful. Excellent shaping of the pistol gip, for a rifle. It's Rigby-esque.

How hard was it to regulate?

Gorgeous. And the idea of a proper double rifle in something else than a big five caliber appeals immensely. I’d be happy with something like that in thutty-thutty, or .357, or even in one of the antiquarian henhouse-defence chamberings, like .25-20.

May I ask what the donor shotgun was? And how, exactly, do the rifle barrels get mated to the monobloc?

This one is an Armas Garbi. Barrels are sleeved into the monoblock and laser welded. Others are soldered in.
