    I needing to have my 10/22 stainless bull barrel threaded, I think to 1/2 x 29.
    Can anyone recommend someone to do this in the Salem area? Not sure if I should go to a machine shop or a gunsmith, I would think it's more of a precision type milling required to stay alligned with bore.
    Thanks in advance.

    Not sure, I posted that off of memory, you're probably correct. I can get the specs from the dealer whose holding my CAN until the Form 4 comes back

    22lr-9mm is most likely 1/2x28 or 1/2x32. you should check 1st... there are a few places online that will do it for cheap ($65-80) just mail the barrel to them

    Wow, thanks for the replies as well as the price range. I had no idea what it would cost. I just removed the barrel assembly and forgot that my bull barrel is not round, it's got many flat surfaces like a hexagon. Does this cause a problem for threading?

    Threading a barrel is done in a lathe. The flats shouldn't be a problem on a
    straight turn and thread operation. If there is crowning work involved,
    then a sleeve might have to be used to support the barrel end in a steady
    rest. No big deal.
