    I decided to clean up the barrel of my 4095 this afternoon after putting some more rounds through it. It is running ammo flawlessly, and the bore was not bad at all.

    Carefully running a few patches through it, I noticed the end of the barrel was very rough. I did not think of looking at it through a magnifying glass, but it is rough. Like very coarse sandpaper grains. I suspect it got painted with some trash on the end of the barrel.
    The end is just sliced off. I thought it would be crowned, but it is not.

    Anyone know if crowning the barrel would have a good effect, more accuracy?

    I know, it is a cheap gun, just curious.

    Technically from an engineering and physics standpoint it should.
    But if you shoot well enough to notice the difference?
    You'll have to shoot the gun from a vice.
    You can't tell 0.1 PSI difference in your tires but a professional racing driver can.
    Same thing....sorta....kinda.....in a way.

    You probably won't be able to tell the difference. But the brass screw method probably won't hurt either. I've done three that way in the last year, two of which I shortened with a hack saw and squared with files. They all shoot good off hand. I used brass screws and valve lapping compound.

    i didn't think it would make a lot of difference-probably just looking for excuses!

    I am familiar with the brass screw thingy, but I would not want to do anything that might void my warranty.

    If I tried to square off a barrel using my files, I would end up with a 4" barrel that was not square!

    It's worth a shot, I would do my "4 calibers" :D
    Even the 995 would be worth it, Olde Outlawe has demonstrated
    excellent accuracy with WWB NATO Ammo, 2" groups @ 100yds :cool:
    Could pull that in to a 1" group with a few tweaks? :eek:

    Personally, I wouldn't mess with it. The role of that gun is not 300 yard precision, it's short range engagement. Just My Humble Opinion.

    You are right, at short ranges, it is plenty accurate.
