Has any one ever docked the barrell of a shotgun? I want to take the choke off of a modified barrel. I've been told that either cutting it off with a hacksaw or useing a pipe cutter and deburring it works. I will be keeping the barrell about 19 inches. thoughts?

When you cut off the choke you are going to be left with a cylinder bore. You are not going to get a very good pattern out of it.

Be carefull you may change the point of the patterns impact. I did this years ago with a model 37 that had a full choke and a 30" barel. I wanted to use it for grouse and rabbits in the thick stuff so cylinder was what I was looking for. Cut it down to 26" and it patterned 3 feet low. Just something to think about.
