    Suppressors are illegal here, so threaded barrels are of no use to me. If you get one, make sure it has a cap. Or maybe they come standard.

    Unless and until I get a suppressor that mounts onto a threaded barrel, I have zero need for same.

    Further - in the interest of concealability, a suppressor is the last thing I need. Considering the bulk it adds, as well as similar legal requirements, I'd sooner step up to a short-barrelled rifle.

    I don't have a suppressor. nor do I intend to get one. So for me there is no reason to buy s gun with a threaded barrel.

    No. If I had a pistol with a threaded barrel, I'd get a can for it, and then I probably wouldn't be CC'ing it.

    So, I have no need for a threaded barrel currently, and wouldn't want to risk damaging threads with daily use if it did (I do realize they make caps to cover them).

    If my carry weapon had a threaded barrel I can see no reason for not carrying it. May I ask the reason for the question? Maybe worried about possible LEO reactions to a threaded barrel?

    There is no worry regarding LEO reactions - although that is a good question.

    I have had my eye on a Sig Sauer Tacops Carry 1911. Most of them come with threaded barrel - although it is possible to buy without.
    It caused me to ask the question - as more states allow for suppressors - would others be willing to conceal carry a threaded barrel?

    Attached are pics of the Sig Tacops Carry 1911.

    It would not help me in my cc carry. A suppressor would make my EDC harder to conceal.

    Threaded or non threaded really does not make any difference as far as overall carry it adds what a 1/2 inch to the overall length but other than that has no up or downside to it.

    Some models only come with a threaded barrel and the buyer may never have the intention of owning a suppressor they just happen to like the model. I own an M&P .45with a threaded barrel but it never leaves the house except for the range and back to the beside the bed the threaded barrel simply gives an option of a suppressor.

    If I got a really great deal on a weapon that came with a threaded barrel I guess I would buy it. I sure wouldn't go out of my way to get a threaded barrel for a weapon used primarily for CC, for most of the reasons stated above.

    I've done it.
    I've got a Sig 226 with a threaded barrel that I took in on a trade.
    Occasionally I'll put a can on it and shoot it.

    I always put the thread protector on it though just to protect the threads. I've had to clean up threads on others guns that were dropped or banged against something.Those threads are pretty fine and cant stand much abuse.

    I don't really make a habit of carrying the Sig with the thread barrel unless its convenient to do so.

    If the extra half-inch doesn't affect concealment, why not?

    It doesn't make a difference afa carrying. I got a LW conversion barrel for my G23 and got the threaded version b/c it's 1/10 the cost to buy it threaded vs have it threaded later on (if even possible).

    Maybe not what the OP was talking about, maybe it is. I seem to recall that CA has a law against threaded barrels. It became an issue with the P22 which is designed for interchangeable barrels, if I remember correctly; and that problem had nothing to do with suppressors.

    I think the OP needs to clear up why he asked the question. I see he is from the NW. Does the question have something to do with traveling into CA?

    Or, maybe my memory is all off and I have no clue what I'm talking about. Not really sure.
