    Why don't you just cut the barrel? If the barrel is shorter than 16" can you find a flash suppressor long enough that you could have it permanently brazed or affixed on to make your barrel the required 16"? I don't recall if the flash suppressor is considered part of the barrel for "legal length" but if it's permanent, there's a little voice in my head that says "maybe....but look it up."

    Do not mig the holes , a tig welder to spot those holes in would work fine and has been done thousands of times on rifle barrels with no effect. Talk to your smith ( who does tig work) and he will agree , hope it helps.

    Thread it and put a barrel filler screw in it.
