I agree with what you guys are saying about customizing a gun to get it's maximum performance. I think fixing the muzzle crown....would mean selling the gun for me. I agree sestoppelman, more often than not...the stock is the culprit of most accuracy. A nice trigger helps a lot, but you can learn how to handle a trigger...if the stock is messed up...you are screwed. I have never shot a huge big bore....so Ed might be right about the trigger being to far forward. I personally love the set trigger...wish it was on every gun.
