How much would cutting and recrowning (11 degree target crown) a stock mini barrel improve accuracy? Surely someone has tried this. I wonder if it would be worth the effort.

As long as your current crown is undamaged and cut right, probably not much would be gained. Even at 11 degrees, the rifling ends at 90 degrees, the rest is just splitting hairs really.

Thanks for the reply GD.
How much does shortening and recrowning the barrel have on accuracy? Typically that is.

As with all things, result will vary. My own experience is that my mini was significantly improved by cutting the barrel, and none of my customers have ever said theirs shot worse after doing it.
