    Cool build. What kind of accuracy are you getting out of the barrels you make?

    Hello Lee,

    Not good accuracy at all.
    My barrels were disasters. I mentioned earlier; my best barrel accuracy was 20 cm (8 inches)
    group at distance of 25 meters. There was nothing wrong with machine and barrel setup.
    Checked with dial indicator several times before and after rifling. I think that problem was
    in rifling head and cutter itself.

    Love it but would it be simpler to add a cylinder with the rifle pattern cut in it so when it turns the rifling gets transferred to the barrel had a pic but cant find it its like a key cutter the original pattern gets transferred to the copy???

    Hello Jamman,

    Sorry for very late reply. /better late than never/

    Did you mean button and button rifling?
    Plenty interesting and cheap stuff in China.
    Just visit the following pages and you will be surprised what you can get for just 100 bucks.

    https://world.taobao.com/item/520855...8.520855207308

    Took me some time to find it by using google translate, but pictures are very clear.

    I am only sorry that 10 years ago I was not able to find this stuff.
    I wouldn't built rifling machine at all. I would buy that stuff.

    Best regards
