Will the reduction in mass cause cycling problems? Has anyone tried?

Thanks.

Thanks.


you'll have to do some work to get it to cycle correctly, but yeah, it can be done.

there is a picture thread of SBS's somewhere on this site. there are a few 11-87's.

I think you have to drill out (open up) the gas ports a little bit to make it cycle correctly.

There's a shorty 1100 on page 5 and 6...

hello. yes it can be done. i just did one for a friend of mine . he did a form one on it. we cut down 2 barrels for it. one barrel is 10 inches and the other is 12 inches.
you have to open the gas ports. i just took a drill bit (.092) and drilled them out. he went and shot it. it worked perfectly on slugs and buckshot, but not game loads. so then i drilled them out to (1/8) size. now it functions on all types of loads.

if you are doing a form 1 remember to have your corporation or your name if is a police signature engraved on the receiver. he had his engraved, but now the handguard covers some of it so we have to modify the handguard. having it covered up is a big no-no. orion engraving in minnesota did his. 3 day turn around time for 35.00. thats a deal. kirk
