Need some advice

I want to buy a used cocker threaded 14" deadly wind but cant seems to find a deal from anyone. Just recently got a really cheap offer for a 16".. would it be a bad idea to cut off 1.5 inches? or would it not be a problem? id like to make it a 14.5".. Any suggestions on how I can handle this?

DO. NOT. CUT. A. BARREL.

Cutting a barrel makes burrs, burrs can cut paint, affect trajectory, and overall ruin an expensive barrel. Even using a deburring tool, the surface of the barrel is damaged and not as the manufacturer intended. Overall BAD idea.

These guys don't know what they're talking about. Cutting carbon fiber is a great idea.

Cutting barrels is nothing new. People have done it successfully.

However, carbon fiber barrels are entirely different. A cut edge means an exposed edge, and an exposed edge means the carbon fibers can unravel. It would ruin the barrel.

Get the length you want, don't settle for less (or technically more, in this case). Keep looking, you'll find the deal you want. Or cough up more dough. Or get a different barrel.

lol for awesome responses, but yea do not cut the barrel, either rock the 16 or just keep looking around for a deal you are looking for for a 14"

Look at his start date, of course he missed the sarcasm. With that start date he also has yet to realize that what's posted on/in the internet may NOT always be true

Don't cut the barrel, the 16" might be cheaper because nobody is buying them so they store you are looking at is trying to get rid of them before they lose even more money.

Can it be done? Yes.

Can it be done by you? Probably not. Besides the cutting and removing burrs, you'll have to re-epoxy the open fiber. That requires an excellent knowledge of composites which you likely don't have.

It's just a really bad idea.
