It's oft been assumed that a longer barrel = better accuracy...not true in and of itself. A longer barrel is easier to shoot well b/c of the longer sight radius and SHOULD maintain velocity better which translates to a longer flight path with less drop, but as to whether the barrel itself is more accurate has a lot to do with rigidity and harmonics, neither of which work well for the pencil-thin light barrel contour on your typical 91/30. Lopping off 9+" of thin, whippy barrel, recrowning, and improving rigidity can't help but improve accuracy, even at the potential expense of trajectory @ longer ranges. Any pics of the rifle?
