Default Anyone make a target crown that screws onto an AR15 barrel?

I'm looking for something other than a muzzle brake for my rifle.
Does anyone make a target crown that screws onto an AR15 barrel?

I'm not looking for a thread protector, I want something light, short and nice looking.

Never heard of such a thing.
Why would you want a removal target crown ?

IIRC a target crown has a precisely finished barrel crown, with a lip to protect it. I don't think you can screw on a crown, but you can get a long thread protector, like those below, to protect the end of your barrel.

This.

OP imagine it as a shallow counterbore with the rifle crown recessed slightly, and a couple light chamfers to smooth the sharp machine cut edges. It recessed to protect the point where rifling ends.

You can't have a screw-on target crown or any other crown. The crown has to be part of the barrel. A crown is there to protect the edge of the rifling so that gas flow is even and so the bullet is not damaged as it leaves the barrel. I might not have written that correctly, but I do not know how else to say it.

Get a thread protector like someone else said. I have them on my featureless rifles.

Randall (AR15 barrels) would be the guy to ask. If it's out there, he'd know about it.

People are misusing the word crown.
The crown is the end of the barrel where the rifling ends and the bullet leaves the barrel.
Crowns come in many different shapes.
Some are flat, angled or even stepped if there is enough diameter.
Recessed crowns are usually done on target barrels which are fat enough to make a step to protect the crown.

I think what the OP is asking for is something that is LONGER than his thread length.
That way, the thread protector will extend beyond the crown and create an effectively recessed crown.
Only it will NOT be a recessed crown because it's a separate part.
It will really be a crown protector that screws on to his threaded barrel.

I also didn't want some heavy piece of metal sitting out there.
Anyway it looks good so I ordered it.

It has a protrusion.

The crown is the edge of the rifling where the barrel's bore/lands/grooves end.

Definition of protrusion

: a part that sticks out

: the act of sticking out or the condition of something that sticks out

The Crown that a King might wear and a Barrel Crown have nothing to do with one another. But I get it that its the look your going for. Carry On.
