Thread: cutting down a .22?

  1. #1

    cutting down a .22?

    I've recently purchased an ancshutz 1416. It still has full open sights and, while screw cut beyond the foresight, I think I'd prefer to have it cut down.

    Question is, how short is too short before velocity is affected?

    IIRC all the powder is burnt within 16", after that it's actually slowing the bullet down. 16.5" seems to be a popular length.

    12" is the minium barrel length allowed by law.

    I dunno if this is right but my local smiths told me the overall fire-arms length had to be 24" but I might be mistaken.

    16" would sound like a good length...
