Silencer Shop is here to help! A threaded barrel has external threads at the end of the muzzle, which allows you to utilize various attachments such as a suppressor or other muzzle devices. If your host firearm doesn’t have a threaded barrel, you’ll likely need to purchase a threaded barrel, or you can contact your local gunsmith for professional barrel threading in your area. If your gun already has a threaded barrel just determine the thread size, (covered below), then your host firearm could be all set.
