I want to put my 91/30 in an ATI stock, but feel the barrel will look nicer if it was a few inches shorter. I see that the end of the barrel is rounded off and not flat, if I was to cut the barrel would it be okay to leave it flat and smooth, or does that rounded-ness have some kind of effect? I haven't purchased the stock so I don't know how it looks in person, basing my thoughts off online pics. There is nothing wrong with the barrel as is, quite good shooter actually. Just thinking it would look more like what I like. Thanks. Edit: I don't have the money to buy a M44 or anything with a shorter barrel already, atleast my wife says I don't .
