Hello SF.
Does any one have any information or a contact I can find out if a Remington Semi Auto Sportsman 58 12ga barrel can be safely reduced in length to approximately 18 to 20 inches for use as a home defense gun? I currently own three of these and have a few barrels of that one could be sacrificed for shortening.
Thanks
