Default Reverse crown

I have a 625JM on the way on a trade. The prior owner had much custom gunsmithing done. One is a reverse crown. What is that all about.

The revolver is what I want for IDPA entry level. I almost shoot revolvers only. Had a 1911 and did all that modification stuff for competition and was not happy.

Just confused about the reverse crown. I am petty basic.

Thanks

If done correctly and square to the bore it should be just fine - IMO.

A lot of shooters who want increased accuracy will have a target crown done. This usually starts with a small rim and then a 7 degree slope to the bore. This helps protect the bore at the muzzle and the bullet exits true. As the above stated, if it's done right by a competent gunsmith.

I have received the revolver and the crown looks nice and clear machine work. Will find oud at the range this evening. Thank you for your input
