    Question Want to thread a Colt Tactical Rimfire for a YHM can

    My whole point in buying this was to have a suppressed .22; I didn't know when purchasing, but the rifle has an inner barrel that's only supported by the screw on flash hider

    I have a YHM can from an AR, and I'd like to thread/fix the Colt with a quick connect coupler for the yhm can. It's industry standard threading. Problem is, I don't know what to do about the inner barrel.

    I'd appreciate suggestions. Or if you can recommend a good gunsmith in South West Montana, I'd appreciate that too

    get a tap and die set and make another sleeve?

    one that has both ends threaded one for the barrel and one for the can?
    a machine shop can turn tool steel stock or stainless to diameter and thickness and thread or you can thread. have you looked for adapters premade online?

    Hah, I didn't even search for an adapter. It looks like Gemtech makes one (gemtech.com). Hopefully others who are searching will find this thread :-)

    if you go machine shop, you may want to get them to make you a few. It costs you for their set up time and multiple items get less and less expensive per unit to make. If you have one made you tend to get reamed a bit. Consider making a wad if you can afford the initial investment and then resell online and charge enough to make your money back. Just a consideration...

    perhaps a link just for the lazy would be good too?

    :-) good call.

    BTW - they are finishing up the first batch in about a week, so if anyone's going to order... just know they aren't ready to ship yet.
