It won't affect accuracy.

I have a Weihrauch HW66 in 22 Hornet with a 16 1/2" barrel and it's a tack driver.

Clive Ward, who is a member on here has a Weihrauch HW66 in 22 Hornet with a barrel which is just over the legal minimum of 12" and he shoots a load of foxes and rabbits with it.

 

Cheers

Surely that's something you should contact him about ?

No offence, but business is business & prices can change year on year - due to lots of factors...

 

For my 2p....

What lenght is it at the moment ?

What contour is it ?

What is your main aim to achieve?

 

Every inch you remove will have + & - points that will either improve or not the usefulness of your rifle.

Likewise, who you get to do the work, could great have an effect.

 

As you don't give your location, it's hard to advise you as to who to talk to in your local area.

My thoughts. I have a 527 American Hornet and I wouldn't change a thing.~Andrew
