Hello from the deep southwest desert!
Are American compact .45 (have one, love it!) barrels 3.75 interchangeable with full 4.5?
I have not seen any form of after market barrels... threaded or otherwise... my thought is threading and installing a 4.5 inch barrel in a compact slide..
Could it/would it work??

Well, spoke with Ruger customer service Wayne, today, sadly the 4.5 inch full size 45 acp barrel will not fit or work in a compact 45 acp 🥺... they know of no after market extended barrels for the compact 45 acp pro either.
Well gonna love mine as is, long time, not a deal breaker..
