I just did this today on my 91/30 and it now shots the surplus ammo much better than it was.

Took pictures of the crown after shooting with the powder residue on it and when wiped off. Do you thinki need to polish it some more?

Great job! :thumb: I'd say don't fix it if it ain't broke, you could always get a green Brillo pad and using your thumb press down on it and twist, should smooth it out ever so slightly. Again great job and I'm glad it's shooting well

you can also put some finer grit on the scrub pad, and push your brass screw head against the crown to polish it a bit more. I had to do that to smooth it out.

Dremmel make a fine grit ball (about 3/8" diam) on a 1/8" stem. I put masking tape around the stem so as to make a tight fit in the barrel. Drop the stem end down the barrel and spin it around putting pressure on the end.

Nice job! Did you get a chance to shoot the rifle before the lap job? Curious to see the change in accuracy.

Years ago I shot it. It shot OK at 50 yards....

I'll bring it out some point soon to see if it was an insane improvment.

I learned the from a California gunsmith(Tommy Bish) way back when. He used a hand crank drill to spin the screw.
