Grand Raptor Crowned Barrel

I just picked up a slightly used Grand Raptor II and have a question. First, it is a heck of a shooter and may be my best shooting Kimber. I noticed that this raptor has a crowned barrel and it is flush cut to the bushing. Question is: is this something that would come from the Custom Shop, or would it have been done by a third party. Thanks

Welcome to the forum from Northeast, Pa. Congratulations on your Grand Raptor, I’m not sure about the barrel but if I had to guess I would say that was done by someone other than Kimber. I don’t see anything on the Kimber site that shows a crowned barrel.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois welike45acp and congratulations on the Grand Raptor. I doubt the barrel cutting and re-crowning was done at Kimber. How about stopping by our "New Member Introduction" sub forum and introducing yourself to the membership?
