Cheapest tool to cut barrel crown?

I just got this old Stevens model 15a. It's just a cheap little .22 but it has sentimental value. I am fixing it up and there is no crown in the barrel at all, unless a bunch of burrs and dings in the metal count. Who knows the cheapest place to get the tool to cut an 11 degree crown?

I was going to suggest valve grinding compound on the end of a 1/4" carriage bolt chucked in a drill. No clue on the actual tool. Maybe Brownells?

Forget the tool. Don't think I can get cheaper than that. Thanks

No rush. I still got this Ithaca project to finish before I start this one.

Some magazine had an article awhile back about using a button head machine screw chucked into a drill, and some lapping compound. They seemed to have pretty good results.

Actually, I think it was American Rifleman. They cut down the barrel and recrowned it. But I could be completely wrong on the publication.

Serves 2 purposes, the main one being to protect the rifling at the muzzle of the barrel. Dings-burrs at the muzzle have a tendency to throw slugs in wierd directions iffen its not done, not done properly.

The second reason is to make loading Muzzle loaders a touch easier to center up a slug or ball before stuffing it down to the charge.
