Thread: crown problem

    crown problem

    after trying to resolve my (inherited) rifle's grouping problems I tired to get a good look at the crown (its a BSA with integral muzzle brake so not easy!)

    this is the best photo I can get but it just doesnt look particularly uniform.
    I dont have anything to compare to it as the other centre fire I have has a much smoother radius but without the muzzel brake there is more material between inner and outer diameter
    does anyone have any thoughts?
    could this be a problem?

    Bewsh, allowing for the picture quality, it appears the markings on the crown lip from the burning gases look uniform to me, if the rifle was mine, the muzzle brake would be history anyway, if it's not needed to retain some collector value, get rid & have it re crowned & threaded for a good quality moderator.

    have it crowned m8 ,the factory crowns are pretty ruff ,get .5in cutt off recrown and it will shoot way better ,also have it bedded if your still not happy with the accuarcy
    thats the 2 most important things to get a factory rifle to shoot appart from good ammo
