GunCraft's gunsmiths have years of experience with machining a perfectly concentric and accurate crown. The crown is a critical point of the barrel because it's the last point where the barrel touches the bullet.
How it's done
At GunCraft we cut the crown with a lathe. No hand tools are used in this process.
The crown is cut perfectly concentric with the bore of the barrel.
We cut different profiles for different calibers for performance reasons.
- .22 LR - Flat 90 Degree Crown
- 6mm and smaller - 11 Degree Crown
- Larger than 6mm - 14 Degree Crown
Our gunsmiths recommends competition crowns even for hunting rifles because a competition crown improves accuracy.
Note that a competition crown is sharp and can easily be damaged, so take care when cleaning.
