The man thing I would be worried about is the tube not fitting into the threads tight enough and stripping out

Well that's fixable by putting in a shim tube inside the barrel. Then threading the inside of the shim.

If the smith is a good welder yes. That's why I asked if you lived in MO. I am a good welder and a damn good smith.....proven fact on both counts.

Ya on something like that a GOOD smith is all I'd trust. If it wasn't for the shipping costs I'd have you take it to a FFL and mail it to me.

Well the shipping you would pay both ways. It really wouldn't be worth it.
