    Shortening CZ 452 barrel - FAO: DPT

    As per my recent thread, I'd like to shorten the barrel on my CZ 452. I've read a bit online about this going disastrously wrong. It has been suggested that the recrowning is at fault and/or CZ rimfire barrels are choked and shouldn't be cut. Might be bullshit, don't know. @DPT - what do you think? Have you done many CZ rimfires? Cheers.

    Yeah, that's what I'm after, but don't want to end up with a ruined barrel. It seems to go well for most, but there are a few horror stories out there.

    Done two for me. Both perfect afterwards.
    Perhaps in the horror stories the machine shops got it wrong ...
