Unless the barrel is less than 4.25”, which might make it prohibited.
    Incorrect. The 105mm thing is for handguns only.

    Not crazy. It is true. For example, a 3" semi-auto AR15 is still only restricted and not prohibited by virtue of barrel length.

    You will be fine. Just don't "cut down" or "shorten" the barrel ..... or at least don't admit to that. There is nothing illegal about re-crowning a barrel.

    "...length down a bit and re-crowning it will..." Nope. That alone will not make the thing shoot better.
    Have you tried as many brands of ammo as you can?
