    To Don Buckbee,
    I also have a M 12 that I love. Would you explain how you lapped the barrel and the advantages over one not lapped. Did you do accuracy tests before and after?

    Lapping a barrel smoothes out the tool marks, and polishes the bore.
    I use a tight fitting patch loaded with JB Bore Paste and run that patch through the bore 100 strokes. I've done that to a number of rifles, both rimfire and centerfire with accuracy improvement in every one.
    Clean up is a mess, but well worth it.
