So after I SBS register the receiver.  My question is, do I have to mess with the gas porting system for the 14" barrel to work with all loads? I saw a youtube vid where a guy drilled his so he could shoot low brass.  This is what he wrote: 

Gas ports-they are both at 1/8 inch (0.125") and used a reamer for a smoother finish and minimal burr, vs. using a drill. I also had to modify the the pressure regulator assembly (opened them slightly, tweaked the "C" spring and made a titanium retainer/2nd overspring), so the gun will still fire 3" magnums without beating itself apart. Switched from the old 2 piece piston to the new 1 piece style from Remington. Added a "barrel seal activator" from a Super-Mag that was also modified, once again so that there is enough gas for the light loads but still vents excess gas from the magnum shells. Also run double Viton o-rings for the barrel seal...

The size of the gas orifices are determined by the length of the barrel and the intended load.  Never modify them.   The 11-87 14" Police barrel is set up to shoot heavy loads such as buck shot and slugs and there is not modification required.  

On you tube every idiot with a gun and video camera is an expert and there is more bad advise there then there is good.   My credentials qualify me to give advise on these guns and you will simply be getting the same knowledge given to me in Factory Armorer Classes that Illion over many years.
