Ever chopped down a barrel?
One of my frustrations in gun hunting has been finding the right length barrel, and also I've noticed fairly often that there'll be a gun I really like and there's a real good deal on it, but the barrel is just too long. I've often wondered what is really involved with chopping a barrel down.
Now obviously I'm not talking about a job in my kitchen on my shotgun with a couple of new hacksaw blades and a metal file. I'm talking about a real job done by a gunsmith/machinist in a shop.
I don't currently have any plans whatsoever to modify any of my guns this way so rest assured. However, if one wanted to go this way, is there any service you can reccommend, and what's a fair price excluding any potential shipping?
