Default Chopping A SxS 12 gauge

I have an old SxS 12 gauge that I bought to chop. Any suggestions before the chop, legally?

You'll need to fabricate a filler piece to plug the hole between the barrels. It has one at the muzzle now. If you are lucky, (extremely lucky) you will cut through a reinforcement area and not need a filler.

Good point.
You could try cutting it long at first, to see if there is a reinforcement area near where you want. Maybe making it a bit longer would save you some work.

I believe most doubles are soldered together. Depending on how big the gap is, make a little steel filler piece and solder that in place.

If you are making a street howitzer blaster, JB Weld will work. Might not take repeated firings without some wear and tear. Make sure you get a good size plug of it along the barrels and ribs. At least 1/2" of roughed, cleaned, prepared surface. If it is a traditional repair, fit a piece of steel to the hourglass shaped hole, solder it in (correctly), and finish it off. The devil is in the details...

Here is a suggestion, PM Kendog and ask him for a quote, so that you will have a professionally looking shotgun.
