Default Identifying a threaded barrel on a compensated 1911?

How do you tell if a 1911 (or any pistol for that matter) has a threaded barrel / compensator.

I know STI and other 2011s makes a integral barrel/comp

I know about bushing comps (easy)

I know about "clamp" on for lack of better words (Hex key).

But what about comps that look like they may or may not be integral to the barrel or permanently attached.

For barrels/comps that seem to maybe be one piece, how do you, short of cranking on it with a wrench and possibly damaging finish, figure out if it is threaded? Or if its been made permanent.

I have seen cone type and non cone type that looked integral.


I dont think "pinned and welded" applies here because that's a ATF definition of permanent.

The CA laws say "A threaded barrel, capable of accepting a flash suppressor, forward handgrip, or silencer." so I dont know if it would have to be a visible blind pin like ARs and ATF regulations.

Anyone have any actual incite on this? Not looking for novice opinion, no offense, looking for actual experience. If anyone can quote a reference I would appreciate it.

In the past (1999-2001), CA DOJ BOF has accepted meeting BATFE requirement for permanent attachment of a muzzle device to cause the barrel to no longer be considered "threaded".

CA regulations also say... [11 CCR 5471(rr)]
“Threaded barrel, capable of accepting a flash suppressor, forward handgrip, or silencer” means a threaded barrel able to accept a flash suppressor, forward handgrip, or silencer, and includes a threaded barrel with any one of those features already mounted on it. Some firearms have “lugs” in lieu of threads on the end of the barrel. These lugs are used to attach some versions of silencers. For purposes of this definition a lugged barrel is the same as a threaded barrel.

Clark pinned and welded the comp on my 1911 460R barrel. Not an issue.

AR15barrels pinned and welded the comp on my AR15 pistol.... stuck one of those stupid fixed mag dealios on it. Not an issue.
