I have an idea to take 12" off the length of my barrel. Is this safe for one thing? If it has been done before, how will it affect the accuracy? Does anyone have any tips or suggestions? The reason I wish to do this is I am disabled and my upper body is a lot weaker than before my accident, so I am looking to reduce the weight when I shoulder and aim my rifle. I would appreciate any and all input, Help, and or tips/suggestions. Thank you and God Bless America!
