    Fie 45 cal Kentucky style muzzle loader

    Almost 20 years ago I watched my uncle fire his muzzle loader on the evening of the last day of deer season. For whatever reason near the breach, the top of the barrel split. He looked for a barrel for a few years but never found one. Do any of you guys know about these fie rifles or a place to get replacement parts? Id love to take him a new barrel so he could get his prized 45 back in the woods.

    If I remember correctly FIE was just an import company so it would depend on who actually made the gun. If that is the case there is a good chance one of the old CVA or Traditions barrels would work. They imported from the same company as well as many other dealers that imported from the same place(Jukar) and also put their names on it. Did the rifle have a two piece stock with a brass spacer in the middle?

    what type of breech plug, flat faced or patent w/ante-chamber? is the barrel fully off the breech and are the breech threads in good condition?
    NRA LIFE ~ NRA RSO ~ Black Powder Gang ~ Traditional Muzzleloading Association ~ Buffalo Rifles ~ Trad Gang
    The .45-70 is the only government I trust.

    Yes the spacer is about where a half stock would end

    The Breech is still on the barrel. But I think it’s not removable

    See if you can find some other markings on the barrel. Probably something like Jukar Spain.

    Keep checking on Ebay. I see those type barrels every now and then. FIE muzzleloaders were Italian made I believe. Check this PDF for info on your rifle.https://www.gunvaluesboard.com/itali...t.-126138.html

    Any of the Barrel makers could supply a Tube to repair the Rifle.The Jukars where 1 in 66 twist as I remember.a suitable Breach Plug would be needed to fit the stock.
