Ok so I'm getting alot of phone calls and emails about threaded barrels. I'm trying to feel out this as it is a big investment. I've got the mag extension mold being modified and a third try at the reduced striker spring for the comp trigger kit. It's critical to make quality products so I'm being very picky about all my products. I have a new site up with a new checkout that I think is much better and I can update it daily so look for changes weekly.
So what price range is fair for a threaded drop in barrel? Be realistic

Eric

If it is a quality barrel $150 retail is pretty good. That's about what you can expect to pay for a Lone Wolf product, and their Glock stuff is solid.

I personally have no want, need, or desire for a suppressor, therefore I can't think of any reason for me to need a threaded barrel. Maybe if I was an assassin or something, but not the case here. Good luck though, because I know there are lots of guys that seem to want them.

FOR those voting NO is it because you don't want one? OR because of the cost for a extra part that is already working?

I'm trying to understand the reasons these people are asking for the threaded barrel. What advantages are there besides the ability to add a silencer which IMO would be a rare request?

I voted no because of no need, unless someone can give me a valid advantage.

Well, I don't see the need in something that I don't want.

Silencers are interesting, and I like to watch the youtubes, but really the bang bang is what will make the bad guy pee in his pants.... I use ear plugs at the range, much less expensive than a supresser. Also hard to conceal when that 8 inch suppresser is screwed onto the end...

Suppressers, Gawdy Assault rifles, full auto, while they certainly have that "cool" factor don't have much practical use for me.

Voted no, have no need for a threaded barrel. It would be cool for sure to have a suppressed SR9, but I just don't have the need for one.

hmmm. not the response i expected from all the calls and emails.
The suppressor is a roit and has it's place. Compensators were more or less what I was thinking. 9mm really doesn't need it but if folks want it why not sell it. The 40 could use a comp if you load hot ammo to compete etc but really its all in the grip anyways, never felt 40 was any different than 9mm, 9mm and 40 defense ammo both have about the same mechanical recoil anyways. Cheaper solution is change the recoil spring to heavier rate. Anyways I've wondered off topic.
hmmm again.

I think a high quality target/match barrel might be more desirable than a threaded barrel.

Maybe a .357 sig barrel for the sr40? :D

+1 & 2.
Mostly for the 357SIG barrel.
I also voted No as I have no need for a supresser (or cost).

I gotta say No to the supressor, aren't those illegal anyway(im sure you can get a permit). But it really is impractical, unless you had the need to show it off to your friends. I had a friend that had one, and to my surprise, it still wasn't that quiet.
Now a .357 sig barrel for the sr40, now that would make me wanna go out and get a sr40, then buy the barrel too(that is unless ruger wakes up and makes a sr357!

I'd say that the costs for making a threaded barrel vs a compensated barrel aren't that different. I bet for a slight cost increase over making just one type a setup for both could be created.

i am up for buying a new barrel in general
i cant have suppressors in in my state but a comp might be ok for now (plan on moving in a few years)

honestly i am on edge
as soon as you offer barrels i will most likely buy one but haven't decided if i would get a standard one or a threaded one

i am leaning towards threaded because i dont have any guns with threaded barrels
i would buy one.
a recoil compensator would be pretty darn neat. A thread nut would be dandy for "carry" but a compensator at the range or competition would be RAD.
I am also interested in a Mini Red Dot mount too.

the SR9 is perfect for building a competition gun for the guy with a budget

but what i am really waiting for is more of those competition trigger kits
i plan on doing a whole lot of business with you as soon as you start taking orders again.

So, I voted YES
