    The seller states that there were no factory threaded barrel P7s made.

    Wrong.

    Here's mine (maybe it’s 1 of 1):

    If "Dirty Harry" had been made in 1996:
    "I know what you're thinking: 'Did he fire twelve shots or only eleven?' Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But being this is a HK MARK 23, the only offensive handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?"

    I didn't know you could extend barrels. How does that work?

    I mean, you can't just glue a piece on to the end...

    Factory barrel is threaded, then an extension with the same outer diameter is added. The extension has the muzzle threads for the suppressor, etc.
    Mark Willis with TROS did my P9S and I'm sure may others this way, Tornado does the same thing.

    Threading a P7 series pistol (9mm) is a lot harder then it looks. The rifling stops at the end of the original barrel and the adapter/extension must have a large enough inside diameter for the round to pass through without touching. A 9mm P7 barrel does not have very thick wall which is why you don't see many half by 28 thread patterns. The 13.5X1 LH has a slightly larger outside diameter which makes it stronger. Any factory threaded P7 barrel is very rare. Most of them are 13.5 X1 LH, but there have also been a few half by 28s made. Also keep in mind that the barrel is pinned to the frame. You will either need to find someone who can remove, thread, and then reinstall the barrel or find someone can can thereafter it without removing it. There is a HUGE difference between a factory threaded barrel and one that has been extended and threaded outside of the factory.
