    For a ruger 22/45 specifically. The trust is set up and the pistol purchased. My plan is to get the threading done while I'm waiting for the tax stamp so I thought I'd get the ball rolling with looking into vendors.
    Who have you folks used?

    OREGON FALER You can email Pat at Oregon Research Labs (owner@orl-llc.com), known him a very long time. He's not in your area (in Vernonia) but he could tell you if it can be done, or maybe he knows someone in your area. He's the one I go through for Class 3 stuff, and Dan.

    Good information folks, thanks for that. I'll check into both of those options.

    And if there's others who have recommendations, I'm happy to hear them.

    Guess what the one pistol they won't do threading work on is? yep, you guessed it.

    You can always buy a pre-threaded Tactical Solutions barrel.

    Yeah, good call. I'll call tom and see what he's asking to thread and move the front sight versus just buying a Tactical solutions barrel. Any idea of a ballpark price on one of those pre threaded barrels. I'd heard $250 ish.

    I second the recommendation to call Tom Denall over near Bend. He is a good guy to deal with, and I know he can do what you describe based on my experiences with him.

    Even if they did work on that pistol, there backlog is astounding, so you'd be in for a really long wait.

    I have a smith that threaded my ruger hunter and my rem700
    Turn around is about a week and to thread would be about $100
    He is in OK, but ships fast and does outstanding work, includes thread protector

    Just curious---as the 22/45 barrel/receiver ARE the gun (the serial numbered part), does shipping have to go FFL to FFL?

    Burt had a good suggestion---you might be money ahead to sell your current gun and
    buy one already threaded. Ruger has at least 3 versions of the 22/45 that come
    threaded from the factory. I own 2 of them--steel barrel, one with rails one with
    open sights. Thinking hard about a 22/45 Lite sometime in the future.

    I don't believe that it does.

    Receiver has to be an FFL. Since the FFL would be returning from "repair" it would go right back to you.

    Give Kevin at Ole's Gun Shop a try. I had him thread my 10-22 and a .308 Handi-rifle. Kevin does great work at a good price. Ole's is in Salem, open Wednesday to Saturday.
