Velocity, louder, and recoil will also increase with less barrel weight. And as you mention, sight radius reduction reduces accuracy. Also, the under rib and ramrod will need chopped.
Why not order a shorter barrel from Bob Hoyt? He is located in Fairfield, just southwest of Gettysburg. I am guessing it won't be too spicy on price, and you get something for your $$ vs. paying a smith to whack the GPR barrel, under rib and ramrod to fit. Add an under rib and ramrod to to the shorter barrel, and now it is drop-in.
If it then doesn't suit your needs like you thought, You are not out a barrel/gun, but just a supplemental barrel you could resell.
