I was wondering what you guys thought about getting a surplus mauser and shortening the barrel to make a handy little brush gun. How short do you think I could go with the barrel, I was hoping to go 20in or so. Let me know what you guys think.
If an inline is just like a flintlock why don't you get a flintlock so you can hunt more seasons?
Like I said mine is cut to 20 inches and works good for me. If you would want you could have it cut to 22 inches and it would not be a problem in tight spots. The sights are Williams with a wide "v" back sight and a large bead on the front sight. They work great for quick, close shots but not very good for long range shooting. The stock is the military stock cut down. I am thinking of replacing it someday but it works fine for now. Go get yourself one for Christmas and have fun setting it up the way you want it, that's half the fun!
