    Im not 100% sure what it is about the firearms industry that makes people deaf to the sound of ringing
    phones, but im not able to get a hold of a single smith for a few quick and easy barrel threads. Does anyone
    here know of a good smith to thread my barrels. thanks

    Any Class 3 dealer should be able to, as well as a decent machine shop. On my side all but one of the local Machine shops do very well with it.

    i'll try a new approach then, still would like to find a one guy does all, just drop off a gun and pick it up complete.

    Several suppressor manufacturers, like GemTech; give local listings of suggested smiths.

    TT is rather local. threading, especially if you're putting a can on it, needs to be done right.

    Depending on what kind of gun it is, you might just be able to take it to a machine shop (provided you can remove the barrel from the receiver). Most tool and die shops could do as good a job as any 'smith could do. The only difference is a smith has an FFL so you can leave the "gun" part there.

    What kind of gun barrel? I am a machinist by trade, and a machine shop would be more than capable of doing the job.......... seeing at thats exactly what they do.
