I have a 9mm carbine with an exposed barrel that I want to have threaded for a fake can (or real can if legislation ever passes! ) or a muzzle device. Has anyone ever threaded a barrel on a firearm or had it done? I have a few questions that I'd like to know that, and I trust first hand discussion and advice more than Google on this topic.
1) Does getting a barrel threaded reduce the length of the barrel at all?
2) Are there any recommended shops or gunsmiths in Dupage county that offer this service?
3) How much does this generally cost to have done?
