A long rifle barrel being forge welded is shown in a wonderful 55 minute movie-turned-video "The Gunsmith of Williamsburg." Wallace Gusler is the gunsmith and makes the entire rifle which includes boring and burnishing the barrel; rifling; brass pouring; wood stocking; and making all lock parts with springs. The Williamsburg Foundation of Virginia produced the film.

 

I became acquainted with Dave Hammer in 2011 at a hardware clinic in Amelia, Virginia. Got to visit his shop not too far from there.

You're correct in that being a great vid. I have it at home. I believe I posted that one already but it's been taken off of you tube. (I think Williamsburg complained and threatened legal action or something) Is definitely one of the better films though.

Sooner or later, everybody who messes around with black powder firearms encounters a broken spring. Seems to be the achilles heel of those type of firearms. As blacksmiths we can deal with it easy enough as shown here:
