Suppressor company SilencerCo removed one more barrier to silencer acquisition by manufacturing its own line of threaded barrels. Perfectly cut and perfectly square barrel threading is critical to suppressor use, as slight alignment problems can lead to dangerous baffle strikes or internal damage to the suppressor. Given the cost of hardware, tax stamps and the long ATF waiting period, destroying a suppressor as a result of a poorly made threaded barrel is a big deal.

SilencerCo barrels are initially available for Glock 17 and 21 models, and the company intends to release barrels for other Glock and Sig Sauer products in the near future.
