SilencerCo has been at the cutting edge of consumer suppressor products since it was founded in 2008. And the Utah manufacturer doesn’t look to rest on it laurels anytime soon.

The company has voiced that it plans to diversify and expand its catalog beyond just silencers, offering accessories for the accessory. And recently, SilencerCo took the first step in this direction.

The company recently announced it is now producing and selling threaded pistol barrels. The aftermarket upgrade allows shooters to make their handgun suppressor ready in a blink of an eye, without having to search for a make and model that is already outfitted with a threaded barrel.

However, owners of one of the most popular brands of semi-automatic handguns get the first crack at the new barrels. The company’s initial offerings are all tailored for Glocks – models 17, 21, and 19.

The company plans to have a full array of barrel options for a number of the most popular pistols in the near future. On SilencerCo’s website, it lists the Glock 17L, Glock 34, Sig Sauer P226, Springfield XD, and Smith & Wesson M&P as “Coming Soon”.

This move is logical for SilencerCo, given the nature of pistols. Unlike a rifle, which can be threaded to accept a suppressor, most pistols require a full barrel replacement.

SilencerCo’s barrels are made of 416R stainless steel, a pre-hardened chromium stainless steel typically used in match-grade rifle barrels. The barrels have a black nitride finish, and are tailored in length and twist rate to the model and caliber of pistol it was designed for (see specs below).

Presently, SilencerCo has an MSRP of $220 for all of its models.
