    If you file or sand on either the rifling inside the barrel or crown you'd basically ruin your firearm.
    The muzzle and crown are extremely important. Some of the old muzzle loading target rifles had a false muzzle that was used to prevent wear to the muzzle from using the ramrod to load it.

    All firearms should be cleaned from the breech if possible for maximum accuracy.

    Yea, its just the way the inside of the barrel and the crown mark the bullet. Kind of like if you take a piece of clay and press it against something porous, it will leave a mark, the inside of the barrel will mark the bullet. It's even sometimes (incredibly rarely) possible to get fingerprints from INSIDE the barrel/chamber after someone handles and loads ammunition and the print transfers from one to the next.
    Not necessarily ruined. I'd love to find an old el-cheapo semi auto .22 rifle with a short barrel that has been beat to hell, hone out all the rifling, and use it for bird shot. Mini-shotgun, basically, that is great for getting pest birds or squirrels from fences/shops/garage rafters, etc. without damaging anything. Bird shot fired from a rifled barrel comes out with a big hole in the middle and is spinning, making it hard to hit anything. A smoothbore .22 was made in the past but is very hard to find...but one CAN build their own!

    Most higher end target barrels have some sort of false muzzle to protect the lands and grooves. My .204 Ruger AR-15 barrel is the same way, with the muzzle being inset quite a bit from the end of the barrel so if you ding it on something, it won't actually effect the accuracy.

    Re: Post Your Weapons

    Whew, been a long time since I've posted in this thread. Actually, If you google "P99 QA" the third picture you'll see is a picture I posted in this thread of four of my handguns, lol.

    So I'm thinking of getting a used 96FS. They're just so damn hard to find. If anyone has one I'd love to hear how they like it.

    Yeah Spyder, I know, but I'd rather buy direct from a dealer in the event there's an issue. I'm checking places out up here in NH, a lot of 92's but no 96's.
