I was thinking about taking 4-6 inches off my 28" Remington 20 g. bird gun. The length and weight are really getting to me. I don't really want to send the barrel off to have it cut and crowned, and instead am looking for some advice on doing it myself. If anyone has a walkthrough or tutorial that they know of, it would be a big help. thanks for the help (that i hope will come )

the last shotgun news annual has a great article on diy cut and crown.

I'm pretty sure the crown isn't going to affect accuracy in a shotgun near as much as in a rifle. It does make for a cleaner appearance and less sharp edges...

Stay tuned.. I'm sure more people will reply.

Wouldn't you also want to have it re-threaded for choke tubes?

Cylinder bore makes a crappy bird gun. It won't pattern for sh!t past 15 yards. Have a g'smith do it and get choke tubes installed.
