    If I sound illogical or crazy just let me know, and I'm serious, I will not get offended at all. So here goes, I recently purchased va SA 911 9mm and I really want a threaded barrel for it but they don't exist. However threaded barrels are sold for the Sig P938, and SA pretty much copied Sig design for the 911 and they look very similar. Now my question is, since the guns are so similar can I order can order the P938 threaded barrel and have a competent gunsmith modify it to fit and function properly in my 911? Like I said if I sound illogical let me know.

    just because they look similar does not mean parts are interchangeable, unless SA says barrel will interchange with a SIG

    Google isn't much help so I guess the only way to know for sure is to drop $200 on the threaded barrel & ask a gunsmith if he can make it work.

    You're right but I'm just curious.

    Why would you want to put a can on something that small?? It will be cheaper to find a new firearm that already has a threaded barrel..

    I have plenty of other firearms that came with or I bought a threaded barrel for. Other than that it's a choice, I mean Sig makes one for the 938 so evidently it's a market out there for it.

    Because you want to. Cool, nothing wrong with that. Keep us up dated.. I'm sure it will help with muzzle flip..

    Just need answers from a gunsmith before I spend the $153 at Osage.

    I can't really help ya there... Also, I've never heard of a drop in pistol barrel swap between two different manufacturers.

    My guess would be no.

    The 911 is fairly new to the market, give it a few months. It is usually 18 months or so before aftermarket doo-dads show up.

    Try to find a blueprint on the available barrel, then compare with what you have with some machinist's calipers.

    Yes - That's my thinking, too. It won't interchange or be fit.

    Let me suggest you switch your search?!
    1st Find a local gunsmith and talk directly to him.
    If you do find one that will do the work,
    Let us know.

    I would not do it. You are looking at reliability problems down the road. Both manufacturers will refuse to help. And that’s before you even try a muzzle device.

    Another solution/suggestion. Sell the Springfield and buy a Sig 938 with the threaded barrel.

    I mean by the time you pay for the Springer, a new barrel, a gunsmith and hope it works out....
