View Full Version : Benelli Barrel 18.5 cut to 16 ?

I own a Benelli M1 Super 90 ( Post-Ban ). The barrel length on it is 18.5 right ? Couldn't you have a gunsmith cut the barrel length down to 16 inches and still be legal ? or do they offer 16 inch barrels ?

NO, it is not legal. The minimum legal length for a shotgun barrel is 18". Anything less must be registered, and the Federal tax paid.

ok thanks, I'm thinking about the legal length of a rifle. Shotguns have their own lengths.
