View Full Version : cutting a barrel
I have a little saturday night spercial revolver that I am wanting to cut the barrel down on. Is it ok to do this? And if so how short can it be cut? Thanks in advance.
Actually is it legal in the first place to cut the barrel?
yes, a rifle bbl cant be shorter than 16".. if it is, you must then register it with the ATF as a short barrel rifle. A pistol bbl can be done but a rule of thumb is nothing less than 2 3/4 inch... muzzle blast and gas pressures are dangerous the shorter it is... BE CAREFUL....

Pistols can be as short as you can handle it. S&W makes J frames in 1 7/8.
