M1 Garand barrel chamber and headspacing question.
Hi. I have a not so simple question, that i would like to know.
Im currently going through the process to be able to order from the CMP. I plan on purchasing a Stripped reciever to put togther my own shooter. I plan on putting on a Criterion Gi Chrome lined barrel. It says that all barrels are .010 short chambered and should be finish chambered by a gunsmith.
My question is, how does a gunsmith finish chamber a chrome lined barrel with out destroying the chromelining?
I know that the m1 does not historicly have a chrome lining, and fought in WW2 with out it. The advantages of chrome lining out weight the cons for me.
So gunsmiths, when i get my barrel, how do you finish the chamber?
