Yes,you will lower collector's value. If you are SURE you want to permanently modify this particular shotgun as a shooter,then go ahead. That's the only way you're going to enjoy it even tho I can hear some purists gritting their teeth already. The reason I say it should be ok is since it was inherited,You're probably never even think of selling it anyway.
