ruger charger barrel advice

need some advice on what i should do with my original ruger charger 10" non-threaded barrel. would like to use spectre II suppressor on it so i can either send off the barrel and have it threaded for $100 or should i pay a tad bit more and just get a second threaded barrel? i'm not sure what the common method is based on what works best. i would prefer to just thread the barrel i already have since i have plenty of time to send it away and i can't think of a reason to have an extra barrel laying around (open to selling it). but it would be nice to also have a shorter barrel.

also with no front sight on the barrel, can i use one of the threaded barrel adapters?

On my original Charger I replaced the barrel with a threaded Kidd bull barrel. I have had great results with it. It is heavier in weight, but is more accurate. I do still have the original unthreaded barrel in storage. For the price I don't think I would thread the stock barrel. I'm not sure the bang for the buck is really there.

On my new Charger TD, it came with a threaded barrel. That one I turned down to accept a iron front sight behind the threads.

If you are set on the stock barrel, have you looked for a take off threaded barrel on eBay or gun broker?

thanks for the reply. i took a look at both gb and ebay and i think i'm going to just buy an 8" threaded barrel for about $100. it's a little shorter than the 10" stock but at least it is threaded which is all i am looking for. to be honest, i don't need both so if everything works out, i plan to sell the 10" unthreaded ss stock barrel for anyone with a charger or sbr who want to experiment with different sights or threads or colors or [much shorter] lengths; hoping to get at least $75 for it.

Tony Kidd sells a nice charger barrel. I'd love to build one on an 80% Razor I have but they're considered assault rifles in my enlightened state and a felony to possess.
