Default 17 HMR Silencer

I am thinking of having my 17HMR threaded and fitted for a silencer. Does anyone know anything about this? Does anyone around here thread the barrel? Does this effect the accuracy? Lots of rim fire silencers out there. Do any of you have one or recommend one for my rifle?
Thanks for any input.

No idea about that silencer, but a couple guys on the forum know their guns very well, Ex. John b and split, whether John is step pappy to split? Haha not going their. But I bet they can answer your silencer questions and if they can't their are more on the forum just as savvy except not related! Haha sorry ! But very beautiful gun! I'd love to own one with a stock like that! yep to many crowns and diet ginger ales tonight! Lol

I'm not sure on the regs, I've been out of date by years and years, but you may need a stamp, a tax, or some combo of the 2 to get a suppressor? I need to know cause after looking at that rifle i want one also! So what are the regs to get a suppressor? And is it worth it tactically or window dressing?

As far as I know there are no regs on the supressor you can buy them on line.

PM Bigbulls, he just had his 300 WSM threaded, could get you pointed in the right direction. But a suppressor/silencer is regulated under the NFA so you will have to go through some hoops, not much just a little pain in the butt by our lovely government. Also plan to spend an extra $200 on top of what you already paid for on the suppressor/silencer.
Here is a link that will help you out with the process http://silencerco.com/education/

He just wants somebody to thread his barrel not somebody to tell him about the law. Almost any gunsmith can do it for you. Accuracy should not be affected if the job is done right. You may have some changes in the barrel harmonics but just re-zero and good to go.

If you don't find anyone to do it, call Peterson's in Phenix City, AL. He can put you in touch with some of the best in the country. Ex-armorers that did work for the Army's Sniper School at Benning.

Well from his above statement "As far as I know there are no regs on the supressor you can buy them on line." He made it seem like he isn't sure about the process or regs. That is why I added a link for the process and the law.

I stand corrected sir and you have my most heartfelt apologies. Fact is, he didn't ask about them at first but HALO got off on the regs thing.

Thanks BWW thats the info I was looking for.
If they do it for Benning gotta be the best.
Thought about Cole Gun Works, I have used them plenty in the past but they pretty much specialize in shotguns.
