Default AK Team, in need of your services - VEPR barrel trim down

I was searching on AKFiles and a few people referred to you as the go-to guys for AK gunsmithing in So. Cal.

I own a 20" V1 Vepr in .308. I want to cut it down to 16". My preference for longer rifles has slowly diminished as the years go on, and the joy I get from shorter, lighter, fire blasters has increased.

I'd love to cut down the barrel to 16" and install a front sight gas block combo, but the gun smiths I go to locally won't touch it. They don't have the machining, so I've been told. Can someone help?

+1 for Randall (^^^). He can easily do everything your asking for while you wait. He'll have you in and out in a few hours.
