Default Threaded barrel

If I buy a threaded barrel can I just throw it in my 1911 and it will work just as well as the factory one?

I've seen one guy have problems twisting the little lock collar to remove/install the recoil spring on his storm lake .45 barrel. Almost like it was slightly too big on the outside. Other than that, it shot flawlessly

Most 1911 barrels have to be fitted to the pistol.

Some pistols require a booster or recoil spring changes to get reliable cycling with the added forward weight on the tilting barrel also.

it's a 50-50 shot it will work. might just drop in and work perfectly with no fitting, or it might require fitting to work properly.

a 1911 gets most of it's potential accuracy from a consistent lock-up of the barrel when returning to battery after firing. if the barrel can't repeat it each and every time, accuracy can be degraded.

if going to a threaded barrel, for a can or compensator, you will more than likely have to also change out the guide rod and spring.

Do you have a calibrator? If so measure you barrel bushing and then get the measurement of the barrel

I plan on putting a silencer on it to kill the evil squirrels and gofers in my backyard, how do I get the barrel fitted properly if that's needed?

proper tools and the skills of a compentent gunsmith well versed in 1911's. there are many books on doing mods to a 1911. and Brownell's sells probably all the tools needed to do just about anything to a 1911. they also carry a huge variety of books on the 1911. Brownell's should be your friend if you plan on working on 1911's!
