You'll almost certainly have to have that made. Buy the barrel of your choice and then take it to a gunsmith, or friend with a lathe and have it turned down and threaded.

Generally speaking folks that buy heavy target barrels don't use muzzle devices so there's not a big market. The good news it's not that big a deal with the right tools, so it shouldn't cost that much.

Like was mentioned above, any competent gunsmith can reduce and thread the barrel for you. The smith does need to know what they're doing though because getting the threads cut wrong will wreck the can in a single pull of the trigger.

Just make sure the threads are cut concentric to the bore. I'd feel better taking a barrel to a machinist than most gunsmiths.

As long as the machinist knows to index off the bore and not the outer portion of the barrel, I would agree.

Yes, a machinist will know this. This type of cut is made many times by machinists not working on firearms. Trust me, a machinist knows this type of cut. There are a lot of applications that require threads concentric to a central hole, not just gun barrels.

@ATCDoktor, thank you so much, that site has exactly what I need, matches all the specs the 22 Sparrow needs :)

There are a lot of applications that require threads concentric to a central hole, not just gun barrels.I know that a machinist knows how to do it and that type of cut isn't uncommon, but unless the machinist knows the reason for the cut, he may not automatically index off the bore. It has happened that gunsmiths and machinists alike have threaded barrels with the diameter turned down indexed off the outer diameter of the barrel. If it hadn't happened in the past it wouldn't be worth pointing out. Assumption is the mother of all...well you know.
