Some outfit in MN is said to have converted SX1's to 3". Does anyone have any experience (or hearsay) with the success/failure of this conversion.

I have a 26" IC barrel 2 3/4" with an added 3" chamber mark.
Only one small gas vent hole. Is this odd?

Thanks to any and all replies.

Seems that I heard something about this years ago, and I think it was more failure than success. IMO, don't mess with a good thing.
Way back when, Simmons tried converting Model 50s to 3", but it only worked with paper shells of the time and it beat the guns to death.

I have a brochure from Nu-line dating to around 1995 and it lists a barrel conversion to 3"



As you can see this was dated 31st Jan 1995 and prices were $95 for main barrel and extra barrel was $65 plus $10 for ammo used in testing
