cut and recrown a chrome lined barrel?
i had heard that you cannot because the chrome will chip and cause MAJOR accuracy problems. is this at all true?

i ask because i am tempted by the FN Special police rifle but wouldnt buy one if it couldnt be recrowned in the case that the end was damaged. it would really suck to have to buy a new barrel...

cut and recrowned ... NO... polished or stoned yes..How much money do you have to spend????? For enough money even the hubble can see str8

does the same thing as gettin it recrowned right? cost about the same or WAY more?

If you're worried about damage, then get a muzzle brake put on, it'll protect the bore and aid in follow up shots.

The chrome will chip, unless polished like Pater said. I'd steer clear of the FN and move towards the Remington 700 PSS, but that's just my opinion based on 4 PSS's that I've owned.
