Don't know if works in all cases, but I had absolutely no trouble, and no fitting, to place a WWII barrel (solid steel, needed for the threading/suppressor use) in my P1. My P1 might actually be a P4, as it came with a P4 barrel, but didn't have the P4 hammer, and the frame seems to be just a standard P1 (the slide and barrel have the same number, but different than the frame). Installing the WWII barrel was part of my U.N.C.L.E gun project. I tried several years ago to use a P1 barrel for the threading, and it separated at the lining after threading. I believe that Walther standardized the dimensions of the P38/ P1 barrels and they are fully interchangeable.e.
