    did you ever backbore your model 12. And what size did you take it to?

    Why would you want to mess with a barrel that throws the best patterns?

    smoken- I have no problem with custom barrel work on a M-12. Many of these find guns came out of the factory with very tight chokes. I would suggest that if you are interested in recoil reduction, you consider something other than backbore work. Both the basic laws of Physics and laboratory testing indicate that enlarging the barrel will not affect recoil unless the barrel is enlarged to the point of reducing shot velocity.
