bulletBarrel Lapping is available for new rifle barrel blanks upon request. $125  Lapping the bore can offer more uniformity, velocity, and accuracy. This process removes the small burrs and marks left in the bore from the machine process. It also polishes the bore, which reduces fouling. A side benefit is that, there is little or no break in for a lapped bore. Which saves lots of time a money at the range.   Montana Rifleman barrels are come lapped from the factory, saving you this cost, so are McGowen barrels.
