Re-taper a barrel?

Thanks for that response Dick. It's sad what some people will do for a buck. For any of you mechinists out there, I'd be interested to know just how it could be done and if it would be easy enough to justify the expense and/or time to re-taper a rifle barrel to pretty exact carbine barrel dimensions. And if they went to the trouble to re-taper the barrel, I suspect this isn't your run-of-the-mill bubba'ed hack job, then why didn't they take the time to get the crown looking right as well?
