Threaded barrels?

This might not be the correct area to place this question, but, are threaded barrels legal? Say i had two muzzle breaks i wanted to use for different applications.. could i have my barrel threaded and switch between them?

Legal

As far as I know, nothing is illegal now after the Clinton ban was lifted. I could be wrong though.

Threaded barrels on pistols less than 50 oz. have never been illegal by federal law. But all threaded barrels are illegal in CA.

Absolutely (assuming NH allows NFA weapons and suppressors, which I'm 99.99% sure they do). Here's a few manufacturers to check out...

Threaded barrels in most states are legal.

You can use a threaded barrel in CA but the muzzle break or compensator must be welded to the barrel so it's attached in a permanent fashion. The muzzle break or compensator can't be attached so that it's easily removed.

Silincers are illegal to own in some states such as MO. In states where it's legal to own one you still have to pay the Fed tax and meet all their requirements.

The muzzle broke on my Remmy VLS, and I had it recrowned. Now, I've never had any trouble with my muzzle BRAKES.
