Mini Combat Shotgun Part 1

After a dissassembly, lube job, and function test of my daughter's 20 gauge, I went about shortening it tonight. I trimmed the barrel to 18.5 inches with a pipe cutter, radiused and burnished the edge, and then cold blued it.
Next, I took two and 3/4 inches off the stock, resulting in nine and a half inches of shoulder wood. I drilled and tapped the barrel for a brass bead. I will fit a recoil pad in the morning.

Thanks for the update.

Always was curious, is the 18 1/2 measured from the end of the headspace ,or the rim of the shotshell ?
