Thanks for the help!!
The type of crown Is basically what ever you like. Some just face it off square. some use a 11o
and others use whatever they like.
The location of the crown to the first port sometimes will determine the type (The idea is to have
the gasses clear the brake body and exit in the first port or chamber cleanly.
I normally thread the barrel to be flush with the back chamber and then place a 11o crown on
the barrel, The right angled will work just as good but I just like the looks of it.
For the exit end of the brake the same thing applies The crown for the brake is your choice.
I also use barrel drops to make the thread protectors.
