I've heard/read the same thing, but neither my 77K or 97K barrels have the foresight grooves... all i know is that when i use my VFG cleaning rod with the felt pellets there's a noticeable tightening when the felt nears the end of the barrel, and it's definitely not at the actual crown but someway's inside the barrel. It's the same when pushing a pellet through from the breech with a rod too... So, if it ain't choke, and there's no exterior machining work done to this section of the barrel... what is it?
