That's exactly what I was thinking.. I've got an SPS in the shop and I thought long and hard about cutting 3" but went with 2" to stay in Mil. spec. Why is it that everybody sticks with even numbers regarding barrel length?BK said:I am not heartbroken over the loss, but I never like seeing a choice taken away. I don't really like stubby barrels anyway, so I woud probably get a Varmint SPS and chop the barrel three inches, have it set back and rechambered, and slap on whichever stock catches my fancy at that particular time. It would also be a little different. Who has a 23" barreled tac rifle, anyway?
