I am interested in a threaded barrel that will accept AR type flash supressors. Any thoughts where to buy something like this?

HAve yours threaded by a smith.
I have not seen one sold threaded.

Buhmaster sells just the barrel, threaded. Click on their Icon in the upper right on this site.

I used to see them on ebay in different lengths. But, not anymore.

I just sent off my Ruger 77/22 barrel last week to be cut off and threaded for a sound suppressor. I'd recommend just having your current barrel threaded.

That's way too much - it looks like a factory takeoff barrel, which can be had for like $25. So, that's basically a $100 threading job of unknown quality, which is more than even the well-known suppressor manufacturers charge. Granted, if you're only going to be mounting a flash suppressor and not a sound suppressor, such precision is not quite as important, but if you are going to pay for it, you may as well get it.

Personally, when I got a .22 can and wanted to use it on my 10/22, I thought it pretty silly to spend nearly $100 threading a $25 barrel, so I got a nice aftermarket barrel of better quality to have threaded instead.

As mentioned, you may want to check around locally to have the threading done - not only at gunsmiths, but any machine shop should be able to do it as well. Barring that, there are a couple of well-known C2's that do the job fairly cheaply. I was going to have mine done by Mike Klos at www.american-manufacture.com, but he was not accepting new work at the time, so I ended up sending it to Gemtech - nearly 2x as much when their (IMHO) inflated return shipping is added, but I got it back quick.

All reports indicate to stay far away from the ones sold by FAC.

I picked up a 10/22 takeoff that was threaded by a local CII at a local gun show (I paid 60.00). I mounted my Bowers Paradigm ( http://www.subguns.com/products/cans/22/ ) and it is VERY quiet. I don't think I even need the plastic aftermarket bolt stop either. Oh and to answer your question it looks cool with an AR flash hider as a thread protector too...MadDog(760)

I'm considering having this done also-- I just don't know if I'll have my existing barrel threaded, if I'll have a bull barrel threaded, or if I'll go SBR and get one of the above cut to 12.5" and threaded.

Got a Lakeside can-- form 4 approved and picked it up last Friday!

Check out www.gunsnstuff.net

I didn't find it on their website, but in the current Shotgun News they are selling factory contoured, blued barrels for $67 bucks(page 61). Threaded 1/2x32 or 1/2x28.
