remington 3006 7600

gun has a 22 inch barrel do you think getting the barrel cut down to 16 inches plus re crowning it would affect accuracy in a negative ?

Just less velocity, unless the recrown is botched.

Anybody can shoot deer on the farm ground....You earn it in the mountains.......

Re: remington 3006 7600

Its hard to say what it'll do to accuracy....

It changes the barrels harmonics...and as said velocity...it could get better...could get worse...

Only one way to find out....


I will say I highly doubt it'll negatively effect it to the point it won't make a dandy bear driving gun....might have to try a different load or something...but it should still shoot plenty well enough if it already shoots well...like was said..provided the crown isn't messed up...

Re: remington 3006 7600

I'd hate to ruin the gun by going down to sixteen inches

Why not just buy a 7600 carbine that already has an 18" barrel?

Re: remington 3006 7600

Just curious, why did you select 16"? 7600/760 factory carbines are typically 18". The 7600 Patrol is a 16-1/2" barrel, but Remington also relocated the rear sight to the tang using a ghost ring, to maintain a sight radius of @ 22".

I just did a quick measurement, and my 22" has a sight radius of 16". With the same rear sight placement, an 18" carbine would be 12". Your 16" would be @ 10". Whacking the barrel from 22" to 16" would affect accuracy a touch or more, depending on how good or bad the re-crowning is. However, the 37% decrease in sight radius will probably affect accuracy more than barrel length <span style="text-decoration: underline">at the same target distance.</span>

Up close and personal wouldn't be an issue. At a shooting distance of 37% less, the accuracy should be the same. i.e. 63 yards with 10" SR vs. 100 yards with a 16" SR.

If you go the same tang mounted ghost ring sight as the 7600 Patrol, you should have no issues. If you just relocate the front sight to the same point on the whacked barrel, then expect at least some greater sight radius inaccuracy at your normal known distance.

Re: remington 3006 7600

Not sure so don't wack me but isn't there something about barrels less than 18 inches some where.

I'm so far behind I think I'm in first place.

Re: remington 3006 7600

I was thinking the same thing MIsfire, so I went to the Pa. Code.

<span style="text-decoration: underline">Title 18 Section 6102 "definitions" of Illegal Firearms</span>
"Firearm." Any pistol or revolver with a barrel length less than 15 inches, any shotgun with a barrel length less than 18 inches or any rifle with a barrel length less than 16 inches, or any pistol, revolver, rifle or shotgun with an overall length of less than 26 inches. The barrel length of a firearm shall be determined by measuring from the muzzle of the barrel to the face of the closed action, bolt or cylinder, whichever is applicable.
