Short Barrel

So I've taken on a project to make my tracer (new style) into a pistol. I've been messing around with a few ideas on a pump handle, but am having trouble with a barrel for it. Seeing as the breech is threaded at the end, I would need to thread a barrel onto it.

Does anyone know where I could find a short barrel (2"-4") Or how to mod an existing barrel to that length?

Thanks ahead of time.

You could go the incredibly cheap way and cut it with (choose your favorite): Band saw, hack saw, pipe cutter.. Then debur it, sand to 2000 grit, buff, polish.

Or you can have someone cut it off more precisely and cleanly with a lathe or mill.

Ya, I thought about that. I've been trying to find the extremely short freak tips. Or, I may get my hands on a python kit or Ifit kit since they are so small and then cut down a barrel to make a tip for it

I know Doc Nickel made some short freak tips in the day you could try emailing him (docsmachine.com). Believe it was called the "flashpoint"

Thanks, I'll check into that. I think I've secured either an ifit kit or python kit, and then i will just modify an a/c barrel that threads into that to be shorter
