    Does having the barrel flush cut and recrowned along with a fitted bushing give you alot better accuracy, or is it just worth it to have a barrel fitted?

    The flush cut adds nothing to acuracy. A fitted bushing and a GOOD crown cut will.
    But, only if the bushing and crown are lacking

    @ Nomad
    From the get go, accuracy starts with the use of oversized parts fitted together with precision. First slide/frame then the barrel to the slide, slidestop and bushing. Using quality parts helps a bunch of couse.

    Perhaps. Depends largely upon what type of gun. If the crown is really poor and the bushing is really loose then the answer is yes. What kind of gun are we talking about here?

    A Colt huh...well, it might help a little...just all depends on how loose the bushing is in the slide and if the crown is damaged. Nothing will take the place of having a proper slide to frame fit done and a match barrel fit but that can be a spendy proposition...
