They may not be heat treated like the larger caliber guns but should do ok for any rimfire.

Well got the old girl out again and studied it, you know I reckon it would look better with 4" chopped off maybe leaving an inch ahead of the end of the magazine tube, certainly more user friendly.

I worried about cutting or getting a smith to do it that I would effect the collector value but I want the rifle to use and now having a stash of 1,200 rounds its going to see me out so why not enjoy it the way I want.

Ive also thought about getting the smith to see if its possible to fit a rear action screw I reckon that would help things along also, maybe look at the trigger as well, he's nearing retirement so I need to think of it as a charitable excersize

I bought one with a bulged barrel. My father-in-law and I chucked it up in a lathe and knocked 3" or so off. There should be a picture in the picture thread.
