    Yeeuuucchhh!

    A perfect example of taking a rifle worth 500 and spending 300 on it to make it worth 200 (if that). Anyone who has tried one of the Columbian 30-06 carbines will know that the new barrel length will, literally, make it a pain to shoot. And it's a pain to look at.

    I see these kind of jobs done on old milsurps back in the 50's and 60's and think it's just sad, but they were cheap guns back then.

    Doing it today is just a crime to me when I see this done. You can put it back together but it'll never be original again. I know everyone has their own ideas but I just hate it when any antique makes it all of these years in original condition and then gets butchered by someone to make a few extra dollars.
