Either way I go quick attach or direct thread it's going to cost more than just threading my barrels and that's what I needed to know.
When I purchased my first pair of suppressors, I had only one threaded barrel suitable for suppressor use*. ...And it was too short for the cans that I bought.

Just to use the suppressors, I had to thread a "starter pack" of six barrels/rifles. (I pulled some barrels, dropped others off as complete rifles.)

Muzzle diameter and caliber were such with two of them that I had to make the painful call to chop the barrels. It was the most difficult decision with my go-to .270, but proved to be just fine. Even with 4" of barrel missing, I lost less than 40 fps.

*I had several threaded barrels on hand, but didn't want to use them. I also assembled another threaded barrel AR upper during the long wait. But it wasn't in the picture at the time the money changed hands.
Don't even try it. It's even worse than the internet would lead you to believe.
