I have looked for a threaded outer barrel from a M17 but am unable to find one in stock anywhere. First will this fit the ATP? and second does anyone know where to find one? I would like to be able to add a mock supressiour and a threaded barrel looks sweet too.

I've looked around and they are sold out where I have checked.  Guarder makes a nice one when you find it in stock.  The one for KWA/KSC M17 will fit the ATP.

Word in advice treaded barrel can install on ATP but most likely the gun don't work with a "barrel extension" installed.  The reason why is Glock design it's barrel to tilt upward to chamber the next round.  On a airsoft replica, adding weights (ie barrel extension, mock silencer) will bind the barrel to the slide so it doesn't cycle properly.  This is why you don't see many mock silencer on a airsoft glock replica.  Even if you see them is mostly for looks and it won't cycle the slide.  Unless you can find a really light weight "barrel extension".

Well that's good to know!

Will a barrel extension installed on a USP Tactical, 1911 PTP, or M9 PTP bind the barrel and effect the cycling on those pistols?

I agree that mock silencers make the gun not cycle correctly. But it still gives the gun a cool look even without the [barrel extension] on it IMHO.

1911 and M9 are not affected.  USP Tactical I don't think so but I haven't try.
