I want to get one for my gov model colt.
Other than a threaded barrel is there any other work that needs to be done like spring changes or anything.

I really want one that is lower on the top so I can use the sights and larger on the bottom. I saw a very high dollar pistol set up this way from the factory I do not recall the gun company but it was not a u.s. one. Craftmanship was fantastic in the fitting on the pistol but the only thing I did not like was the gold tone finish. It resembled a large desert eagle but was not.

Check out the Osprey, it seems to be popular.

I have never shot one but I'm also currently in the market for a good 45 suppressor, so I'm more subscribing than recommening.

As long as you get a suppressor with a recoil booster/decoupler (aka Nielson device or LID) you shouldn't really need to do anything other than replace the barrel. I went back to the stock 16 lb spring (I'd been using an 18 to keep the empties closer at hand for reloading) after I fitted a threaded Storm Lake barrel to my RIA and I'm totally happy with it and my Osprey.

Just get yourself a barrel and the suppressor and you will be ready to go. This is my Kimber Warrior with a Swenson barrel and Osprey suppressor. The barrel was real cheap you just need to install the link and I did have to polish the feed ramp just a hair.

I like the one above.
What about cleaning and so any internals wear out?
This will be my first.

I really enjoy shooting this suppressor on several different host guns.

Nothing in them to really wear except for an occasional O-ring, none of the internals should contact anything except for a little copper dust and carbon residue. Not a lot of cleaning involver with this suppressor, here is what Silencerco suggest.

Because the Osprey has such a substantial amount of internal volume, there is no need to regularly clean the baffles. When you do want to clean the baffles, soak the silencer in a hydrocarbon-based solvent such as WD-40 and certain mineral spirits and/or lacquer thinners. Then, remove the Osprey and blow out the internals with pressurized air, shake out all the liquid, and let dry.

The Nielsen device, or booster, should be regularly cleaned. Remove the booster and disassemble all the parts (refer to the “booster disassembly” section). Using an abrasive brush and/or a Scotch-Brite pad and solvent, scrub the components free of the carbon buildup. When finished, apply white lithium grease to the O-ring inside the spring retainer, assemble the booster and install into the back of the Osprey. NOTE: Do not use sandpaper to clean the booster as it may ruin the precision finish and may cause malfunction.

The threaded barrel will need to be fitted. Stormlake makes a great threaded barrel. SWR Octane45 is the best 45 on the market right now.
