I'm sure our member CowboyCS (http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/members/cowboycs.html) could fix you up. He's a master at what he does and he's building a slick 2 bore now. (pun intended). If he can get a line on a barrel, I'm sure he could bore the riflings out fairly easily. Or perhaps it would be cheaper to build a new one. Heck, he might even have a shot out barrel that he could spit-shine for you. He's even in Kansas.
Gotta love those Lymans. I have a Trade Rifle and a Great Plains Hunter. Both are great shooters, but the Trade Rifle is more accurate than the Hunter. At least I've found a load that it likes. Perhaps I haven't worked with the Hunter enough yet. Ah, range time! That's what it's all about, huh?

Thank you Belch,
Kansaslonewolf, I can help you. I don't happen to have one in my shop right now, but I can get you a smoothbore, put a breechplug and flash hole liner, and fit it for your stock with no problem. Send me a PM or the link in my signature will take you to my homepage, all my contact information is there, I'd be happy to discuss it with you.
