Is there such a thing as a ' DIY-barrel-turn-down kit'?
or a 'lathe alignment tool'? Similar to the thread aligner (example seen here:http://www.brownells.com/aspx/NS/store/productdetail.aspx?p=22229&s=47995 ), but where you slide the caliber-sized rod down the barrel up to the wider part which is a known diameter: say 15mm in our case. Then instead of a threading die, a 'milling die' or a 'grinding die ': one designed simply to shave off metal down to the 15mm diameter we desire, is cranked down and turns down the barrel, keeping it even and true to the bore?

Or, is there any good, accurate way to turn down a barrel at home?

(FWIW: I am trying to turn down approx 1/2 of an inch near the muzzle of a barrel which tapers from about 16mm to 14mm, down to a uniform 14mm. Yes, the same one referenced here: http://forum.saiga-12.com/index.php?showtopic=11413)

Thanks Experts!
