Anyone have any experience re-crowning a chrome lined bbl? I have a FN SPR w/ a 26" chrome lined bbl that is in dire need of a new crown...Any concerns before I attempt this????

You should not have any problems doing this,I recrowned a Argentine chrome lined barrel last year with the Brownell's 11 degree recrowning tool you use by hand and it took all of 10 minutes from start to finish.HTH

There have been several posts about this. The summary is that the chrome lining in your barrel is NOT like the chrome plating on your car. Cutting the barrel will not cause the chrome to chip.
Have fun.
