I was drilling a hole to install a calvary arms muzzle brake , to make my bushy pre into a post. I went into the bore. I must have mis calculated the depth.
What effects will it have on the chrome lining?
Thanks

You have several options, first, exactly how long is your barrel (measure from locked bolt face to end of threading on muzzle) If you can shorten to behind your hole and still be over 16", do it and you have a legal, naked muzzle post ban. What kind of barrel?

Oops, it's not toast. Cut, thread, crown as needed. Just a little shorter barrel now.

i didn't think you could cut and crown a chrome lined barrel. correct me if I'm wrong.

I have cut more than one with no ill effects. I'm pretty sure KKF cuts and crowns them too.

As long as the pin doesn't protrude into the bore, I wouldn't worry about it. The hole in the bore will be no different than the gasport is, and after a couple of rounds any "burring" will be gone.

Just drill equilateral holes on all four sides, smooth them out, now you have a ported barrel! Some people pay a lot of money to do this.

Thanks for the replys, well everyone but Markum...........UP YOURS!!! Nothing protrudes into the bore, and a cotton swab doesn't get hung up on any burr's. I'm not really too concerned, this is my beater AR anyway, it is a A-1 16" Bushy, came off my pre-ban lower. I replaced the upper with a A-3 flat top, and installed this on an extra postlower I had hanging around.

Contact Kurt from Kurts Kustom Firearms, he can do magic with barrels. One option would be cut, recrown and install a fake flash hider.
