I prefer to shorten a standard rifle to 20" over a factory carbine ! 18 1/2" is a little short for an 06 in my opinion , especially if you don't handload ! They used to make the 760 carbine in .308 , 270 and 280 , also I've heard .35 Rem. , but I've never seen one . I charge $50.00 to cut and crown a barrel . The Carbines are usually priced $100.00 more than a rifle at least . Not a sound investment in my opinion . The ones stamped Carbine do have better resale value , but they should have , they cost more in the first place ! I have never seen one shoot worse after having the barrel shortened , usually gets better , shorter = stiffer , which means more accuracy . Love the Rem. pumps from Mod. 14 on up !
