This is something new to me. I’ve always taken my barrels to a smith to have them crowned. How is this done? I really like the look.

Look up videos for the manson crowning tool. It centers itself on the barrel rifling and uses it as a pilot. Then it cuts perpendicular to that pilot shaft. Hand crank or slow rpm power tool.

Thank you for the suggestion Underwhere, Interesting stuff. Here is a video i found on the Manson Crowning Tool. This is more doable than i had imagined.

Will work for CZ pics! (including but not limited to all CZ clones)

Yup that's it.
I bought a cheapo black and decker power screwdriver to run mine.

The Brownells tools are easy as pie too, and they work great. I've always had them because I always do my own crowning. The tools are also nice to have just to fix any mishaps while in the field.
I do like a nice clean, crisp crown.
Alot of the time I just use the brass crown lapping tools and some 600 lapping compound and it's good as new.
