    Threading lever action barrel for suppressor, who does it?

    I want to suppress a Marlin 1895.

    How do I get it done?

    Can it be done attached to the receiver? Or, does it need to be removed from the receiver?

    I found a guy who does slip on ones that use a set screw, it leaves a little bit of bugger on the end of the barrel but fits snugly and is notched for the site.

    Class III Machine in Texas will do it, I was quoted $235 for an 1894 from door to door but that included shortening the magazine tube, relocating the front sight, and refinishing and was part of a batch, your price may vary. He also did several single shot barrels for me and I had them back on the guns within 2 weeks of shipping.

    Ranger Point Precision also in Texas will do it, but be warned they've set up a full custom shop to tempt you into having as much work done as possible. Their website is not for the faint of heart or light of wallet.

    It can be done.
    Nowadays I thread for suppressors on a five axis mill without removing neither barrel nor trigger from the receiver. The barrel is clamped in a vice with soft jaws near the muzzle. A precision ground gauge pin is used for aligning the bore using a probe and a bit of math. Once aligned the outside diameter and thread are milled using helical/spiral interpolation using a simple macro-program.

    The same concept when modifying shotgun chokes. Only, instead of an end mill, I use a grinding point (the machine spindle will do 12.000 rpm) This is just the ticket for those hard-chromed reamer-ruining chokes and the surface only require a light polishing afterwards.

    Thank you for the replies gentlemen. Tornado looks for the guys for me as they are right in my back yard.

    Cap'n, I am continually amazed at what you guys can do with a mill.
