Can somebody post pictures of barrels with 90 and 11 deg. crowns?

I'm thinking about sending my Mini14 barrel off to get it cut down, and re-crowned.
The two options are 11 deg. crown, and 90 deg. crown.

I've heard these terms before, but I'm not sure how different they look.
I'm figuring the 90 degree looks closer to factory.

Can somebody post some pictures?

Thanks in advance.

Er... 90 degrees is straight across flat, and 11 degrees is very slightly concave.

I've got both types of barrels, and benchrest smiths make both types. My smith, who won the Supershoot this year, makes a 90 degree with a slight recess. 90 is faster/easier to do, and since you're gonna be recrowning a target barrel every 500-1000 rounds, why not...

Here's a link to what I was looking for:

Found it in the "Gunsmithing" section, of all places. :rolleyes:
Well, I knew THR was the place to look.
