Bull$#*% from Earl. I have 4 threaded barrels for the P99 and none of them shoot any better than the stock barrel. Good grief it is only about .5 inch longer than the stock barrel.[b said:Quote[/b] (toeball @ June 27 2005,18:50)]but it aparently dramatically improves the accuracy of the gun. I don't know about for you, but here there's a fair bit of paperwork, gotta get the local police chief to sign off and pass a background check to get a scilencer, and then, there's a $200 transfer tax for each one so odds are if you can get a silencer you're gonna spend the cash on it cause it'll cost you $200 on top of whichever one you get.
