In the latest addition to their #FightTheNoise campaign SilencerCo has expanded their line of threaded barrels. The two new additions are made for the Glock 22 and 23, both of which are .40 S&W pistols. The new barrels join a group of eight pistol barrels currently being offered for the Glock 43, 17, 19, 21, 17L, and 34, SIG Sauer P226, and HK VP9.
SilencerCo threaded barrels are made of 416R stainless steel. That particular steel is well-suited for barrels in large part because it is considered to have good machinability. This allows it to be machined and lapped to a high finish to meet the exacting tolerances required of a precision barrel. The quality of the lapping process is extremely important when it comes to accuracy and high quality can only be achieved with the correct grade steel. 416R stainless steel gets it done with 10% chrome – which aids in corrosion resistance – and sulfur, which improves machinability. These are well-made barrels.
Shooting pistols with suppressors is both enjoyable and a good way to save your hearing. It’s also a nice plus to be able to talk to other shooters without yelling or removing or adjusting ear pro. Using larger caliber pistols suppressed is great for hunting as well; there’s just something about dropping a hog with a suppressed 10mm that’s absolutely awesome.
Wondering which SilencerCo suppressor to use with your Glock 22 or 23? Take a look at the Osprey 45.
Both of these new threaded barrels ship with customized SilencerCo thread protectors. MSRP not yet listed, but the MSRP on the Glock 21 threaded barrel is $226. Visit the company’s website for a closer look: https://silencerco.com/silencers/threaded-barrels/#tab-4
