Replacement Crosman barrels are cheap. I would start with one of those.

I would prefer a quality barrel blank in the vicinity of 24 inches

Go to his profile and then his web site. If you enjoy machining detail Rick youll enjoy his metal gallery.

Very impressive work I might add there Jerry.

Al beat me to it

Well I do follow up sooner than later!
Sorry for not responding guys, but I was busy in my shop, or....

Thanks, to all whom responded to my inquires on a airgun barrel blank, which I did find and purchase from a gunsmith in the Maritimes, and it is now part of a PCP underway in my shop.
I will post photos when done.

Welcome to the CAF, Jerry
Looking forward to seeing your PCP as it progresses. After seeing some of your other work, I'm sure it'll be top-drawer...

Okay Jerry, I am way envious of your "home" shop! I have nothing at home except a vise, gunsmith hand tools and big work bench I built, and now a welder for Christmas. I need a lathe and mill, but thinking I might get a "Smithy" combo because my shop is not that huge!

If one wants something bad enough, its possible to make it with sweat and determination, and possibly skill, although perseverance helps . I have been humbled by some of the work done by guys that used basic hand tools to build what looks like it was built in a well equipped machine shop.
Good on your possibly acquiring a Smithy combo machine center, although having said that, I have thoughts on that, as I have experience using a combination lathe/milling machine center. Years ago I owned a Maximat combo, and I was doing some serious modeling on a daily bases. Now this unit was a extremely accurate combo, and did superb work, but the problem was all the tearing down and setting up involved.
What I am saying is you might be using the lathe one moment, and then need to change over to the mill, and then back again, and this involved maybe removing the cross slide being used with the lathe, and replacing it with the milling machine vise. You needed to always keep your favorite dial indicator handy to dial things back in to square, and it seemed like I spent more time setting up and tearing down, than doing the actual machine work.
Now having said that, I was happy to work this way for a number of years, but once I acquired a separate milling machine, I never looked back.
So keep that in mind if your planning on doing a lot of work with the lathe, and then followed by work on the mill.
Also if you plan on doing gunsmithing work, a lathe with a larger spindle hole is a plus for those chambering and threading jobs on the barrel.
If you keep a watch out, you may find some good used smaller lathes and mills out there.
If you live near a larger center with a live steam group around, there is always someone who is parting with his shop, possibly cause he passed on, and his widow is getting rid of his shop.
I used to belong to the "Calgary Model Engineering Society" and on occasion a well equipped shop became available.
Sorry for rambling on, but just some of my thoughts.
