    Going through some of my Uncle's things (he passed right before memorial day)
    There is a short barreled shotgun that was too short for me to want to take home. My question is: What is the shortest a shotgun barrel can be? and If this is too short, what is the best way to get rid of this?

    I assume I would just call the local PD and follow their instructions

    Anything under 18 inches is illegal. Can you replace the barrel?

    believe its 16"
    is it short barreled or sawed off? sawed off is a no-no for sure.

    According to the NJ Statute 2C:39-1 part "O":

    o.
    Quote:
    "Sawed-off shotgun" means any shotgun having a barrel or barrels of less than 18 inches in length measured from the breech to the muzzle, or a rifle having a barrel or barrels of less than 16 inches in length measured from the breech to the muzzle, or any firearm made from a rifle or a shotgun, whether by alteration, or otherwise, if such firearm as modified has an overall length of less than 26 inches.
    translation= shotgun 18" rifle 16"

    It's a pump. Can't remove the barrel, it appears to be an old KMart gun. I am really unsure of its legality. I think I will end up contacting the PD and see what they say
