I have a 20g 1148 with a plain barrel and a stepped bead. I'd like to open up that choke, and shorten the barrel a couple inches.

I'm comfortable cutting the barrel cleanly, but I'm not clear how the bead and stepped block are secured - it doesn't look like it threads in. Is it soldered on? And if it is, can it be sweated off and resoldered onto the shortened barrel?

Thanks

The block is silver soldered on the barrel.

Send your barrel to Mike Orlean. Have him shorten the barrel and reattach the bead, and he can install choke tubes as well.

I had him shorten a 28" full 11-48 barrel to 26" and install tubes for my 16 gauge 11-48.

What kind of 16ga choke tubes did Orlen put in your 11-48?

Keep in mind that shortening the barrel and reinstalling the original bead will most likely alter your POI. It will be much easier and cheaper to just buy another barrel.

Win50,

Corson's Barrels (www.corsonsbarrels.com) in Kingman, AZ currently lists a 26 inch 20 GA. Model 11-48 barrel with fixed IC choke in 95% condition for $250.-. Don also has a 25" Cyl
20 GA. barrel in 95% condition at the same $250.- price. I've found his descriptions of condition to be accurate.

Thanks folks.

I'm only in to the whole gun for about 250, so I'm not sure I'm up for another 250 for a barrel. It looks like I can get a period-correct polychoke and get it fitted for about $100, so I may go that way.

Out of curiosity - I understand why shortening the barrel (essentially cutting off the choke) would alter the pattern, but would it alter the POI (where the pattern is centered)?

Thanks again.

I believe they were colonial tubes. I had two full choke 28" barrels and one 28" Mod barrel so I had one of the full choke barrels cut to 26" and got an I/C tube for it.
