Chopped SxS

Im thinking about getting a double barrrel 12ga and turning it in to a pistol. I own plenty of shotguns as it is and just think that the pistol doubles are cool. Recoil is not really an issue with me, i just want to know what excatly i am getting myself into as far as work and fees go. I imagine a smith will have to do the work to the gun and i know you have to get it "restamped" but not sure what excatly that involves. Do i get it restamed before or after it has been cut down, and how do i get it restamped, do i have to send it away or does the gunsmith or what? Also can anyone ballpark a price, (not including the gun). Thanks

Your question would be more properly posed in our NFA section: http://thefiringline.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=4

AFAIK, you need to get the proper permit from BATF, after you acquire the shotgun, but before any modification like you describe, to get the converted gun registered.

Anyone that does not, can proceed directly to jail, w/o passing "go".
