I am going to cut an IMBEL barrel to 16" soon and I have read some posts that this will dramatically change the POI. My question is why does this happen? How does DSA compensate with their SBR cutie as its poi shift would seem worse with that 9-10"? barrel it has. What options will I have other than setting the backsight at the wrong elevation or filing my front sight down to a nub?

All input appreciated.

in my L1A1 from 21 to 15 in it was all to turn front sight down a couple of turns.
(there is not much space to turn it more down but it zeroed ok)
