Counterbored?
 
I was looking on web auction sites yesterday and came upon a listing that the seller said his gun was not couterbored. Does anyone know what this means?

counterbore
 
when the muzzle is relieved by recesing to prevent damage

counterboring
 
In some cases the counterboring was done to relieve accuracy problems when the crown or lands near the muzzle were damaged. Use of the old steel rods similar to our barracks rod were hell on muzzles.

It depends on the type of gun he was talking about. If the gun in question is a revolver, it could mean the chambers in the cylinder are not counterbored. Smith & Wesson used to counterbore most all of their cylinders, as did Ruger on their Super Blackhawk. They stopped doing this because it really isn't necessary, but it did make the gun look so much better without that big gap in between the cylinder and the frame. It also saves money by speeding up the manufacturing process. Bill T.

Also,I have a Polish .22 trainer. It is counterbored too. It gives the appearance of a large caliber rifle.

Counterboring is done to try and restore some accuracy caused by a damaged muzzle.

Counter Bored.....
 
This is out of text. There are counter bores and then there are counter bores. My uncle had his rifle counter bored to accept a 410 shot shell. I counter bored my shot gun to .755 at the muzzle. So what was or was not counter bored.......:confused:
