    Man, not in a million years. I would definitely pay you to shorten my 336 Marlin though.



  2. Jolly rancher on August 18, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    Can i do the same with choked 12 grooves air rifle barrel?



  3. Ryan Freeman on August 18, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    Well that barrel is ruined



  4. egjdmcivichatch on August 18, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    Can use these same steps for the sks barrel? I cant find your shorten barrel for the sks anymore looking to chop my type 56…

    If you worked up some reloads could probably shrink that group.



  6. House of Flambeau on August 18, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    What size cap screw should I use for a 22lr?



  7. The Green Eyed Bastard on August 18, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    I used brass pipe cutters now I just have to sand and polish. I’m going to use a dremel with angled bits



  8. Brian Crain on August 18, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    Interesting method… Definitely one way to do it without the proper tools (lathe)… Never would have thought of using a button but for the recrown…



  9. Marcos Martinez on August 18, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    would a brass screw head been better for the polishing work? like a lapping tool?



  10. bkpugsley on August 18, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    Did you reblue the muzzle where you cut so it doesn’t rust? I have a Savage 12 .308 with a 26" heavy bull barrel. I’m wanting to cut it down to 20" or 22".



  11. Mackenzie Jones on August 18, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    How long is the barrel on that thing



  12. CEO Aleo'sTM on August 18, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    Do you need to recrown a barrel?



  13. Mackenzie Jones on August 18, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    It looks to be a very handy truck gun



  14. paul zale on August 18, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    Awesome setup!



  15. michele lanni on August 18, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    FYI: I have absolutely no knowledge on fire arms so my question might sound stupid so if it is I’m really sorry
    Why should you cut the barrel down?
    Is it for the performance of the ammunition?



  16. Høney Bàdgér on August 18, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    The only acceptable shot group at 50 yds. using a bull barrel is 1 hole.



  17. Jeffrey Johnson on August 18, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Does cutting off barrel affect the cycling in an auto like the savage A17 HMR



  18. Jason Pound on August 18, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    This would be ok if it was the end of the world or somthing but a cut and crown costs about 65 bud at a gun smith.



  19. codemiesterbeats on August 18, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    I bought a mavrick 88 with a bent barrel… Guy fell on it going down stairs. I was like sure ill buy it.. Think i gave him $100. I chopped it at 18 inches (yes measured with dowel to breech face) I worked in a shop that happened to have this reaming tool for pipe… I just didn’t like the looks of the flat tipped barrel. It turned out pretty nice, its just an under bed gun.



  20. dogit1 on August 18, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    I was just looking to see if you can I’m watching Liam neeson cold pursuit and Liam neeson cut off his gun barrel with a Kmart hacksaw that should have made the movie a hell of a lot longer hey



  21. IRONBLOCK RECORDS on August 18, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    What size crown nut for 762 x 39



  22. Bengt Creations on August 18, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    Yeah, I was thinking perhaps squaring off your cut with a disc sander and a miter slide set at 90 degrees, and making sure to compensate for any tapering of the barrel with some shims. Careful not to overheat, and viola’…



  23. Idaho Potato on August 18, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    Nice but I bet that initial hacksaw cut wasn’t even remotely square. And holding a drill like that just ads to it.



  24. t t on August 18, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    What size cap nut would you recommend for a .308?
    And what angle of cut on the crown can you get with these nut caps? I’m looking to reduce the barrel of my rifle from 23.5” to 18”
    and the heavy barrel is 1 inch in diameter



  25. Joker Blade on August 18, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Alright so I want to explain first that i saw a video talking about using toothpaste as a high grit polishing compound on certain parts of machines. The reason I say this is I needed to re crown my barrel and was wondering if it would work. The answer is yes but it is also very messy. Thanks for the video it helped alot.



  26. hunter haon on August 18, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Is no one gonna talk about the sbr in the room?



  27. Josh Turner on August 18, 2022 at 8:33 pm

  30. Jack Sagrafsky on August 18, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    How many "teeth per inch" beside being HIGH CARBON STEEL, saw blade would you recommend for a AR-15 barrel?



  31. TailGunner45 on August 18, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    Which barrel/ material you use for this gun barrel?



  40. Anonymous Anonymous on August 18, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    Love the rifle. Great video



  41. clinnyboy on August 18, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    followed your advice along with another vid in which the poster used a piece of aluminum angle iron which acted as a guide for starting the cut. worked perfectly. My barrel came out great!



  42. j s on August 18, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    Nice thanks for the info!



  43. THOR KILL on August 18, 2022 at 8:52 pm

    How an idiot ruins a gun if he ever finds one



  44. double eagle dave on August 18, 2022 at 8:52 pm

    Dam i just asked a gun smith to cut my side. By side 12vgauge down to 18 and a quarter and rebead it i dont think i mentioned recrowningg it i sure hope he does it level 😭 if not. Illl hhave to break out my steel wool and file !! My shotgun aint gotta be to accurate buut does need to be able to shoot a foster slug if something a might outta range for 00 pellets to keep there pattern when i got it it was a tad to long it wasent ridiculous but was a might longer then i wanted it came with a. Recoil screwed into – the butt what i was looking for was a coach gun but threw a horse swap it was the only thing i could come up with with out chopping off a body part and given it to the ffl who had coach guns so i traded one of my extra hand guns even up but got it home and found out the pin on one side was broke it didnt fire so i called the guy and said no go he. Said ill make it right ill pay to have it fixed and koan u my stoeger. Coach guun till its done becuase the gun smith said it would be fall b4 he could get it back. So i said well why you have it cut it down to 18 and a quarter and rebead it which should about make it a coach gun but i may need to smooth it out the only other thing i wish i would of had the guy do is turn the auto safety turned into a manual safety everytime you break open the gun to load or shuck hulls and close it it engages the safety and u gotta remembervto click it off i wish i would of had him disengage that. Do i could just choose if. Aand when i need to put knob my gun on. S as fety it could be worrst i guess at least ivdont have tob xxx cock hammers its hammerless.



  45. That1ChillMan on August 18, 2022 at 8:53 pm

    Is it illegal to make a short barrel rifle



  46. Mackenzie Jones on August 18, 2022 at 8:54 pm

    Thanks man I’m thinking of doing my 30-30 like that



  47. Fierce Mouse on August 18, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    Looks professional! I’d pay you to recrown my rifle for sure!



  48. Aldo Mandujano on August 18, 2022 at 8:56 pm

  50. C Tamarack on August 18, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    One method to having a true flat cut is to use a pipe cutter to score the surface to give me guidelines as I cut.
    I’ll use a black marker to cover the area before using the pipe cutter.
    Then using minimal pressure but enough to score the surface to give you lines to follow when hacksawing the barrel
