Barrel Chop

Any recommendations for a place to chop my REM 870 barrel from 18" to 12" and install a bead? Possibly port it as well.

Home Depot or Lowes for a hacksaw.



JB Weld for the bead.

No reason to suspect so.

Someone will correct me if I'm wrong but what you propose is illegal unless you have a tax stamp, no legitimate gun smith will do it.

Correct.

Legal if you have a stamp.

Good frikkin luck with a hacksaw. Better buy the best blade and saw frame you can. I recently shortened my 10g to 18.5 and it was TOUGH steel. Resorted to a cutting disc on an angle grinder and even then.

Not a joke. Why would it be? I want to SBS a shotgun and want a smith to install a new bead for me. Figured they might as well cut it too to ensure it's not off kilter at all. With the barrel tapering it's easy to screw up.

Did my OP say I was doing this without a stamp? Why is it so many people here assume "that's illegal!" before asking questions.

I've been reading about Vangard. I was told by a local smith that Briley is good as well. Just wanted to hear if anyone had any other good recommendations.
