As far as exploding barrel, there is no problem unless you screw up the inside.

There may be some legal issues if you end up cutting it too short. Looking into the barrel length requirements.

Default Cut off and recrown

I was thinking that my yugo is longer than the standard sks because of the GL attachment/muzzle brake. It looks like the barrel will still be around 20" long. I belive that most states require 16" or 16.5". I will research the length question.
thanks
