Have a 1993 purchased Beretta 92fs I wish to have the conical bushing setup installed, is this possible ?

Does it result in the barrel being threaded or in any other way able to accept a suppressor?

It is threaded but it is not designed for a suppressor, it was designed to install a sleave that helps keep the barrel on the slide nice and straight. It helps with accuracy but there is no way a suppressor can be installed as the threaded portion is covered by the barrel nut.

Anyone know where to buy one? Beretta doesn't seem very good about making accessories for their guns...

WAL from beretta forum makes them. I think he was working on a Cali legal version.

Ya, I'm just trying to see how it works.
Images aren't clear, some look to be externally threaded as if they thread into the front of the slide.

So basically it's a tapered seat that threads onto the barrel so it self-centers when the slide moves forward?
If so, then yes... "threaded barrel" is illegal unless it's pinned.

Of course, if it's pinned, then you aren't going to be removing the barrel from the slide for cleaning.

True. Wal is perfectionist ... So we will have to wait.

I feel like I paved this road. WAL and I talked many times, and he refused to do a CA version (i.e. non-Threaded). He is a great guy, but has many irons in the fire.

I believe that Allegheny Gun Works DOES have a CA version.

Seems like it would be simple.
Cross-drill the bushing and barrel, tap bushing, install grub screw.

Removable to disassembe, but the barrel is not threaded, simply has a "divot"

Not to the point that I will be shipping.

It will take a few more months.

No you can't. ..the threading is just behind the front of the part of the slide.

I could easily make a flashhider to fit on the end of that barrel.
