    I am trying to find a way to get a threaded barrel for a Bersa Thunder 380. Before we get into why I would want to spend big bucks silencing a $250 gun, I am thinking about getting a suppressor for a much nicer gun, and if I can use it on the Bersa too, it sweetens the deal.

    So I am looking for either a threaded barrel or a longer barrel that I can have threaded. Does anyone know if it's possible to thread the inside of the barrel, like in the James Bond movies? Any advice would help, it seems like this is an impossible item to find.

    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    If you wanted to spend the money, I'm quite sure you could get one custom made.
    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    There seems to be a lead here (if that's not you in the OP)
    http://handgunforum.net/showthread.php?p=90916

    Someone mentions a Bersa .22's barrel can be threaded (?)

    Colorado says he can do things like that apparently....

    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    Any gunsmith with skill could do it for you. Set it up like a non-california model walther 22.



    External threads with a cap the length of the threaded section matching the original barrels O.D.that stays threaded on when the suppresor isn't.

    I've been thinking of using this company to do my Ruger 22: http://www.hi-desertdog.com/index.php

    I just joined, so apologies for the late posting.

    I did not see it mentioned, so I will.....do you realize that a silencer is a restricted class item? It requires a special permit from BATFE, which itself will cost more money and paperwork. I'm not sure of the class, III or perhaps IV? In any case, if you haven't already, you'll want to do some research on this before you run afoul of the law......and we're talking Federal here, this isn't a matter of state law.

    Just trying to keep it all clean, my friend. Good Luck to you.

    You can try Jarvis... just google Jarvis Barrels.

    Have you tried looking at Brownell's (http://www.brownells.com) or Midway (http://www.midwayusa.com)?

    This is what I would suggest as well.

    I'm looking to suppress a few of my handguns as well, so I've been doing the same research you have. I remember being told that reverse threading (threading inside the barrel) is possible but there was some reason that it wasn't a good idea. I can't remember what that was, though .

    Jarvis does make good after-market barrels, and sells them threaded. They seem to be rather picky about what models they will make, though. I called to ask about a barrel for a specific handgun and they said no, unless I was willing to pay ~$900 :?.
