barrel sleeves

I've seen barrel sleeves for ".36" -navy caliber guns so that cartridges are accurate...First off, how is the sleeve "fastened" inside the barrel? And is there a way to do it so as there is no 'separation' between the sleeve and the barrel? i.e I don't want to see it when photographing the end of the muzzle.

680 Loctite some G/Smiths use for that purpose. .004 to .006 th. under/bore is required for Redman liner to fit correctly. As far as noticing a bore liner at the end of a barrel crown area. That's a good question Sir. I guess it is what it turns out to be.

Trued, polished, and blued... invisible.

(It is an old armory assembly phrase and means to be "assembled", "finished", and "stamped with inspectors marks" BTW).

Sort of like making something "Lock, Stock, and Barrel"

I have a .36 cal Remington 1858 model with the barrel sleeved to .357 and it works great. Using an R&D conversion cylinder, I can fire .38 Special and .38 Long and Short Colt without using a hollowbase bullet. I shoot store bought "Cowboy" loads of smokeless cartridges and hand loaded black powder cartridges through it. You barely notice the the sleeve at the end of the muzzle. I'll try and post a pic later.
