That 2 inches will cost you $200 and a stamp from the government. You won't be able to sell it to anyone unless you get the transfer approved by the ATF.

If all you want to lop off is 2 inches, it may not be that good a deal.:)

Fill out a Form 1 (http://www.titleii.com/Forms.htm), Certificate of Compliance, get some passport photos and save up $200 and you're good to go.

Not so fast. It may be that easy, but then again it may not. Kansas used to have a ban on such weapons that was much more restrictive than the federal regulations. Even Kansas law enforcement used to have to deal with out of state sources for Title II weapons.

Kansas law apparently changed on July 1, 2008 to be less restrictive, but I have not been able to locate the new regs. Here is a news story from March 28, 2008:

Automatic Firearms Bill Passes Kansas House

(AP) - Individuals could own machine guns, other
fully automatic firearms, sawed-off shotguns and silencers under a
bill the House has passed.
The vote Friday was 105-18.
The measure is the House's version of a Senate-passed bill
making it a felony to deface or remove serial numbers or other
identifying marks on a firearm.
A House committee wanted to rewrite a state law limiting the
possession of silencers, sawed-off shotguns and automatic weapons.
In December, the attorney general had issued a legal opinion saying
part of the law is so restrictive that only law enforcement
agencies can possess silencers - meaning no dealer can have them in
Kansas, even to deliver to those agencies.
In amending the Senate bill, the House committee decided to make
it legal for individuals to own such guns. But they would still
have to comply with federal laws requiring background checks.
The House's change will become an issue when the two chambers
negotiate over the final version of the bill.

By the time you get it all finished you will have spent a ton of $$$ for very little gain. Get a Serbu Super Shorty if you really want a fun little shorty Shotgun.
