I'm sure a rifled barrel would attract attention at customs, particularly in a place with such strict gun control.
how would you suggest graphting the two barrels JSR
what a silly question, EPOXY of course
That's a tough question that depends on whether the rifling/barrels is/are lined up, and whether the rifling had an equal twist rate at both ends of the barrel. Quite a few barrels don't.
Different twist rates aren't that much of a problem, for example in this Elswick Ordnance Company 6 inch Mk. IX gun
, the twist rate changes 5 times along the barrel length - though of course, the rates would have to match at the point where the barrels meet, otherwise it could tear your pellet to shreds.
I would suggest grafting a barrel to a smoothbore tube though, it's a cheaper solution and will be just as effective. Shotguns for example can be fitted with rifled choke tubes to fire slugs more accurately, this only provides rifling for the last few inches of barrel.
