  1. #1

    Chopped barrel update.

    Went and picked up my CZ this morning , it came with a v nice letter from the gunsmith detailing what went wrong and how he had rectified the problem. He also serviced the gun and uprated the trigger FOC. and enclosed the target ,

    I will get out myself tonight.

    According to the letter. The thread had been cut too tight ??? He recut the thread. New face relief and crown. And faced off the moderator to give a better fit.

    I suspect the thread being tight was a bit of a red herring - unless it was a full interference fit. It sounds like it is better fitted now but I can't imagine that was the problem with your massive group sizes - I'd bet there was something wrong with the crown before & it has been properly done now.

    ENJOY
