    anybody cut down a set of arrow shotgun cans

    just wondering if anybody has done this,and is it easy enough to do,i have a set but dont really like them the standard lenth but in my opinion (which usually counts for zilch )think they would look better about 150-200mm shorter
    or will it mess up the flow of the cans,any ideas and pics if poss would be great one day i might put on a can that will last a few weeks

    quite common mod on the shotty's, they usually take them down so as that they sit at just short of the end line of the seat unit - 20cm's seems a lot ?! the usual is around 2 inches (whats that ...... about 8sm'c?!)

    nah no welding from memory, the perf tube slides inside the end caps, measure your cut tape up the marking with masking tape (stops slipping and shows the cut marking easier) hold it by hand not in a vice. Here ya go - a full walk through on bulldogging the shotty's --> click me

    just use a 1mm thick stainless cutting disc on your angle grinder
