I'm looking at buying a Tom Bowers Can(There cheap) for my M11/9mm.

Does anyone know of anyone who can thread an Uzi Barrel for this can?

Is there any reason I wouldn't want to do this???

Thanks,

Eric

Eric,

You can buy an Uzi barrel that is already threaded for a Mac style suppressor directly from Bushmaster. You can easily get this barrel for under 100.00 which makes it a great deal. You then can keep your orignal Uzi barrel intact and just switch it out when your ready to shoot suppressed.

I hope this helps. If you have your heart set on having the Uzi barrel turned, let me know, I have a smithy that can do that for you.

Regards,

Thanks!

I didn't see any threaded barrels from their webpage, but I've sent email.

Why look for a hard solution, when an easy one will do.

Sorry, we no longer make the
threaded UZI barrels with Mac suppressors.

So, Bushmaster doesn't do it anymore. Any more ideas??

Thanks,

Your best bet would be to see if Tom can make you a new rear end cap and send it with your new can. This part CANNOT be made by anyone else. ANY integral part of a can is controlled as such and if made or sold seperately would require another tax stamp.
