    It is better to source 10 inch barrel rather than ruining the original barrel, should be able to find one in dak or peshawar......or if you want to ruin the barrel then better take the barrel to dak, they are making sbr version of ar hence well versed with process

    I think that is better Idea to source new barrel...but barrel is engraved with weapon number, will I be able to engrave weapon number on new sourced one or it does not matter? Any idea of price for good quality not very high end further will it be possible to arrange in Lahore ad going to DAK is very difficult for me as total new place without knowing any one there

    Shotgun barrel can be sawed off quite easily than the barrels having rifling & crown etc these are quite technical & tricky to play with. Dont think anyone in Lahore can do that .
    Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others.

    The problem with such cut up barrels is that they reduce velocity. Now the m855 bal (NATO greentip) typically hits disintegration velocity by 2750 fps. Such a small barrel reduces a few hundred FPS, much less then a 2750 fps figure (if it fragments that is). This means that you have yourself a glorified knitting needle. That makes tiny needle sized holes.

    Many people advocate that the 2000 fps + vilo turns the targets's internals to mush. However, that is generally not the case.

    Soo, you are effectively reducing the range, the accuracy and the vilocity. Not to mention the fact that I have seen a lot of people who got burnt by the powder and the massive blast can also blind the shooter, thereby making follow up shots almost impossible.

    For the round to attain its maximum efficacy the powder should be burnt in the gun itself. not your hand.

    Yes. it looks "Tactikool" to wield a rifle that is small enough to be a pistol. But If you want a pistol or an SMG, get one of those. Rather than arbitrarily hacking into your CQA. (Heck even the Amaricans have realized it does nto work and have now put in an order for an SMG)

    Yes, the krinkow can do this because the 7n6 and the 7n10 5.45 rounds are not velocity dependent,Since they have an air pocket inside, they are designed to tumble at any velocity. this is why the Krink is an effective weapon , but this poor chopped up emasculated CQ is anything but.

    Have a heart, dont do this to a perfectly serviceable rifle.

    Exactly, as the name suggest 'SBR' its for close quarter encounters....US SOF adopted these Sbr to reduce weight and cutting corners easy, they have to employ suppressors too hence barrel length was reduced.....people went with the hype, the only purpose an sbr serves is easy to carry in vehicle and deploye from a seated position.....anything under 13inch barrel length in a 556/223 round is ineffective.....

    If HD or Car carry is the purpose then an SMG or a high cap pistol can do the job quite effectively. As can a small barrel shotgun. I once helped a man buy a CQA, only for him to tell me that he will just arbitrarily hack away the barrel of his weapon. All my talk about crowns and rifling and efficacy went clean over his head.

    He had purchased a jet back corolla and wanted to 'accessorize' the new car with an Assault rifle, and if the rifle became useless in the process, he did not give a damn.
