    Hand Lapping Process?

    I've read a lot about fire lapping a barrell in a number of forums and Marshall's technical manual. I am very satisfied with the accuracy that I get with my Marlins utilizing both hard cast (BTB) and jacketted bullets, so I haven't felt the urge to fire lap my barells. But, I'm just curious, is there a process or procedure for manually lapping a barrell? Are there advantages of manual vs. fire lapping. Just curious...

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Hand Lapping Process?

    Firelapping is a process (like you've read), that will remove constrictions and smooth rough edges in the bore. Flitz when used manually, will smooth out rough edges only. Nothing is done for constrictions.

    Hand Lapping Process?

    There was an excellent article about handlapping in Rifle a few years back by John Barsness. I can look up the issue when I get home on Monday.

    Hand Lapping Process?

    It was Rifle #198 (Nov 2001), page 44. The article is titled "Lapping Barrels." John Barsness talks about lead lapping, fire lapping, and brush lapping. It's pretty interesting.
