    if yo have a lathe to make up a brass pilot then just recrown it on the lathe at work. pretty easy to do really. just get teh bore running true and then cut at 11 degrees from the inside out. use HHS since its sharper and makes a cleaner cut i recon

    The lathe won't take the barrel, open sights.

    I wish, might be a bit hard to justify that to the boss though

    Barefoot's cutter should work a treat
