Is it neccessary to adjust the size of the gas port when chopping an FAL barrel to 18"? I've heard some people do, some don't.
Thanks

Maybe not, especially if you have a muzzle brake on the rifle.

You'll have to try it and see.

Didn't have to drill on a 16-1/4" carbine (http://www.falfiles.com/cgi-bin/forums/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=8&t=000557) without muzzle attachment (arguably the "worst" situation for loss of pressure).

You might want to test fire and go from there.
