Can anyone here make me a thread cap for my italian Beretta?

So I had the misfortune of moving back to NY, where the government doesnt like those evil threaded barrels.

I need a thread cap with a locking set screw so I can solder it in place. Id much rather give someone here my business so if somebody here could turn one for me quick id greatly appreciate it.

Why not just chop it off and re crown?

Blind pinning just ruins the threads anyways.

If it's the berreta 71 that came in a few years ago with the 1/2 x 20 thread with 2 pounds of steel tacked to the end, then the threads are kinda fawked already.

All you need is a vise...and a drill.

Go buy a steel thread protector in the size you need (you didn't list it), a 6/32 tap, a #36 or 7/64 drill, and a 6/32 set screw. A small chamfer tool if you don't have one.

Place part in vise, carefully locate area to drill, center punch, drill, chamfer, tap.




OR...find a company that makes threaded protectors in-house.
Have them perform the operation described above on yours when you order it.

Its the 71 so the threads are already fucked.

Its very accurate so I dont want to fuck with the barrel.

I am working long hours so I'd prefer to pay someone to do it, but I'll make my own if I cant find someone.

I have a couple 71's and the threads came out fine after the fake can removal ? I made an easy thread protector by turning down and knurling a common 1/2x20 nut. I would guess you could just grind down a nut to round, and if you took your time It could look alright with a little sanding.

Or, it could be a pretty quick job for someone here that does machine work.
