I guess it would depend on the bore condition, Doc.
If the bore is good, I would simply re-crown, but if there is any pitting I think I might be tempted to shorten it up some.

Well...

A main reason for shortening the barrel has nothing to do with shooting, but the appearance of the rifle.

It would make it more authentic looking as a carbine.

So If I amgoing to crown it, I'll shorten it too.

I do see your point.
