    Best way to change uzi barrel

    I have a vector with the slightly long barrel.
    Cheaper to buy a 16inch or have a gunsmith cut it down locally?

    If you recommend buy, where you get one?

    You looking for a barrel to make yours an SBR? I assume you have a SA? I have a short barrel that will drop in an SA gun, or FA conversion. I'd trade it for a factory FA barrel.

    You're talking about an 18" barrel semi that you want to be 16"? Call around and see what a 'smith would charge to cut and recrown.
    With barrel prices over $100 I'd be willing to bet you coud get it done for much less.

    People here are looking for 18 inch barrels to meet their States requirements to have a folding stock on their Uzi. Check around, and offer it for trade before cutting it. I'm sure someone will go for a trade.

    Great idea. Thanks.
    I hate to start cutting stuff up when there is a better way.
