Suppressor manufacturer SilencerCo launched a line of threaded aftermarket pistol barrels yesterday.

This step towards diversification is the first of several planned accessories expansions from the Utah-based company, who has garnered a loyal customer base by offering innovative products and best-in-the-business customer service. While rifle barrels can easily be threaded to accept a suppressor, most pistols require the purchase of a threaded aftermarket barrel to take advantage of the benefits a silencer can offer.

"The only thing better than a normal pistol barrel is a threaded pistol barrel," stated SilencerCo CEO Joshua Waldron. "All pistol silencers require one. We noticed a market need for high quality pistol barrels and we stepped in to offer them."

SilencerCo will begin sales with most common Glock models this year, adding select Sig Sauer, Springfield XD  and Smith & Wesson M&P models in the first quarter of 2015. Barrels for Glock G17 and G21 can be purchased now on the company's website and will ship in late October.
