Pretty much any gunsmith can do this for you.

Problem is, most have several month waits.

tell that to the Remington 700 .308 I cut to 16.25", the Norinco m97 I cut to 18.25" and the Winchester model 1300 I cut to 18.25".

all cut fine, just cut slow, a quarter turn of the cutter tension screw at a time. make sure the cutter follows the same cut all the way around. the only thing it won't do is heavy varmint barrels like on a Ruger 10/22.

I love internet ppl who tell me something won't work when I have already done it.

Been calling and emailing places. Just about all of them won't work on class 3 stuff. And the one or two that will want hundreds of dollars for this.

Eff it. Hacksaw it is. Looks like I'll be learning how to install a bead as well.

Cutting it down to 12" tells them it'll be a SBS when it's done. They won't touch it. I tried!

Maybe use one of these facing tools to square everything up after you go to town with the hacksaw.

I used a bandsaw. The weighted ones found in a metal shop. Quick, easy (once you're satisfied with the square) and clean.

Bring your stamp so it’s all on the up for me and up and I could help. In the timonium area.

This is the route I'm taking. I've given up on having a pro do this. I'm at the point of "eff it". I'll be using a hacksaw and a router with this crowning bit to clean up the cut. Should come out relatively nice actually. The stamp, and the tool for this will be the most expensive part of this project.

Be careful with that router. The muzzle crowning tools are meant to be turned by hand.
