I am thinking about having the barrel on my ol faithful Beretta 21a in .22lr threaded by tornado, 150 bucks seems like a decent price to pay, seeing as I cannot find an aftermarket threaded barrel for it. But I have questions on the process. Do I simply mail the entire firearm to them or just the barrel? Anyone used their services in the past? Customer service any good?

PS-I am threading the barrel on this mousegun purley for the novelty of it. ("James bond" hype of a small pistol with a suppressor, plus its a heck of alot cheaper than buying .32 or .380 for a ppk) I have threaded 10/22 barrels in the past when I had acess to a good lathe and tools, but never pistol barrels. Plus I think it will be a good match for my ruger mkII what has a threaded barrel. Now I need to buy another AAC pilot:D

I used them to get a P30 bbl threaded. The work was amazing and the customer service was outstanding. Can't recommend highly enough!

Ice, there is a very good gunsmith in Elgin (between Columbia and Camden) that may be able to do the work for you. :) Makes darn nice suppressors too.

Tornado Tech is one of the best in the business. His prices are pretty in-line with most places, but his work is top notch.
