Re: cutting down a barrel?
How about cutting down the stock to something like a modified pistol grip? This would sure shorten up the length and you could rig your sling to accomidate the shortened stock. I only know of 2 x instances where guys cut down .22 barrels (my brother and his buddy did them) and both guns lost all sorts of accuracy. They tried crowning the cuts with a ballgrinder on an electric drill. One of thes guys read a shadetree gunsmithing account of how to do this and something was lost in the translation. Ruined 2 nice Remington .22's. Also, have you thought of cutting off the stock bacl of the pistol grip and adding a wire folding one? Just a couple thoughts.
