    A bunch of Canadian websites sell 14'' but I've never seen a 12.5''....

    Buy a barrel and have it cut and if you are looking for tighter shot patterns Vang Comp the barrel.

    Why 12"? Isn't 14 as short as you can go w/o modding the mag tube and pump?

    12.5 is right where the mag tube ring is at.

    do it yourself. Plenty of advice on the process online in the gun forums, especially AR15.com.

    You're gonna have to pay $200 any way you go so why not get it exactly the way you want?

    I found a shop that will sell me a 14'' barrel once I get my stamp for $200 bucks. New NFA wait time is 4-6 months, last one took 90 days.

    I don't believe you can go too short on a shotgun, unless you start cutting down the magazine tube. I've shot some extremely short LE shotguns. All were highly effective, and shorter is faster when fighting in a building. I see no problem with 12.5" barrels.

    Talk to J.D. at AI&P Tactical (aippi here on GT). If anyone would know where to go he would be the one to direct you.
