I'm disappointed in you C3. We both know that using a pipe cutter can cut and install the proper choke on the barrel at the same time...

That was what I was thinking.

We actually had a case here in VA where a BG used a pipecutter to shorten a shotgun, used it to commit murder- we got a ballistics match on the Powrpiston- the plastic shotcup/wadding. Pipe cutter had crimped barrel, left burrs, burrs scored the plastic like rifling leaves marks on bullet.

I agree it's better to buy a 18.5" barrel but if you're determined to cut it make SURE it's at least 18.5". That will ensure it's still over the legal limit of 18"-no matter how they measure it. I'm assuming you'll want to either reinstall the bead or put a set of sights on it.
