    I have my 1911 riffled barrels crowned (11 degrees)can I get a similar benefit in accuracy if I have my Glock barrels crowned?

    I've crowned the barrel of my G 34 @ 11* but it really didn't seem to make that much of a difference. Tested either way it shot about 1" @ 50' using a Ransom rest, using my IPSC load. Since I do custom Glock work, I thought that it would be a good advertisement to have a custom crowned barrel. Not that it matters, as I can't shoot as well as the gun can!



    Sad but honest.

    Hey George, you can crown the barrel but it is a tuff job if you want to use a hand reamer the tennifer is very tuff to cut through. I usually end up crowning them on the lathe. Personally I dont think it has much of an effect on accuracy though but it does look nice:)

    The only time it should make a difference is if there is a problem with the factory crown or someone has dinged it or damaged it in someway. Ive ransom rested a few glocks and the factory barrels are usually pretty darn accurate.
