I would not have it Fluted after it is re profiled because to many things can go wrong and
accuracy can suffer .
If it's the weight that's an issue then just have it profiled one size smaller than you would
I will not have a barrel fluted by anyone except the manufacture at the time of the barrels
manufacture. This way he is responsible for the quality of the fluting and the barrel
It is true that in the hands of a true craftsman it can be done but the risk is not worth it
in my opinion.
