    I need to recrown a .22 barrel that has been cut down by a previous owner. The cost for the tools is a bit much for a single job. I was wondering of anyone has the tools and wouldn't mind either letting me bring the rifle to them or letting me borrow the tools for a bit.

    I’ve used a brass round head bolt and some die grinding compound to smooth an old barrel up. I think I found the vid on YouTube. Chuck the threads in a drill and used the bolt head to smooth it up. It’s kinda slow going but it’s cheap.
