Call Pacific Tool and Gauge at 541-826-5808.

Buy tool.

Use tool.

Sell tool.

Or keep tool for future projects.

From Brownell:
You would need a crown cutter, t-handle, pilot and brass ball lap. If you keep the tool you can do other bore sizes by getting the appropriate size pilot and lap, if the first isn't in the same bore diameter range.

79 (11) degree cutter: $52
Pilot: $25
T-handle: $15
Lap: $14

TOTAL. $106 + shipping.

A gunsmith would charge 40% to %50 of that. If you do two with the same tooling, it has paid for itself.

I looked, but couldn't find such a place.
There is a Gunsmithing forum here. Start a new thread there.

Here in gunsmithing , or 2nd still acceptable choice would be in the rifle/ pistol/ shotgun subforum as indicated. C&R forum is kinda touchy about anything other than a pure restoration.

But on the initial topic , as with most thing gunsmithing and most mechanical endeavors :

If it truely is a once and only one procedure , it will cost more to get the proper tools than to pay to have it done once. After you own the tools you can't do it multiple times yourself.

There are expedient low cost ways to crown , but it won't specificall be 11 deg.

Isn't this the Gunsmithing part of the forum? I'm not sure of your meaning. Is this for gunsmiths, or people who are doing their own gunsmithing? Again, I'm a newbie. Don't want to step on any toes.

That defeats the purpose of doing it myself.
What is C&R forum?

C&R Curio and Relic.

Maybe start a thread in the rifle forum.

I think people are saying that you are asking for gunsmithing services by posting here.

You can say what you want and do what you want and post pics of your progress in a rifle thread.

And if your building a close range pig buster gun, you don't need an 11 degree crown.

There are much cheaper and still effective ways to clean-up the end of that barrel.

I use a 45 degree chamfer and round lap on my 45's and they shoot as accurate as guns with other angles.

This forum has been about gunsmithing services (professional) AND do it yourself gunsmithing.

IMO, the PERFECT place for this discussion.

Thanks, I appreciate that.

So if I am doing an in-depth conversion, requiring a lot of gunsmithing work, should I start a post, with progress pictures on this thread, or is there a more appropriate place?
It isn't about the gun, It is about what and how I am doing it.

Thanks.
