    A few "aftermarket" mods and you can set that sucker down even more. I've gotten 150mm Shermans down to 65mm.

    Actually I thin they could. They probably just have a spacer in there to make them 80mm. Remove it and it would probably become a 100mm.(Just an educated guess)

    But if the 80mm Gold Label uses shorter compression rods you can't do anything.
