Default 15-22 replacement threaded barrel?

Hi all. I currently have a CA compliant 15-22 (no threaded barrel), that I purchased early last year. I have since relocated to AZ, and I am thinking I would like to have a threaded barrel model. Is it better for me to get a new threaded barrel (if even possible), and swap out the barrel, or should I just sell the rifle I have, and buy a model WITH the threaded barrel? What says the 15-22 brain trust?

Why not just have the barrel threaded?

That could be a possibility, although I am not sure I would trust any of the local smiths in my small town, as I have called a couple in the past inquiring about a small task, and neither bothered to return my call.

Edit: Actually, on the CA compliant model that I have, I believe the flash hider is permanently attached, as having a threaded barrel in CA is a felonious offence. So, I do not think having my existing barrel threaded here in AZ is an option.

Volquartsen now has a threaded, light weight, carbon fiber barrel for the 15-22 that is also very accurate. It's a direct replacement.

It's probably better to buy a new mlock 15-22 when on sale than buy the aftermarket replacement barrel.A lot of money for just a barrel?

Have it threaded. I have done a few of them for customers and if the smith is capable, its not to bad of a job. Worst part is taking it apart to get the barrel off the receiver.

Consider selling/trading up to a Performance Center model. Threaded and fluted Match Grade barrel, better trigger, nicer furniture. The slim M-loc handguard is an ergonomic improvement over the older quad rail design too. Cost wise, your not looking at a lot of difference.
Love mine.

Thank you, but ouch! nearly $350 for a barrel! I will need to pass on that.

Agreed. $350 is too steep for me.

Hmmmm. Will look around to see what kind of price I can get, as these list @$709. I paid $299 at a doorbuster type sale for mine when I lived in CA.
