Let me ask- have you had the gun looked at by a gunsmith?

no

Customer: replied 7 months ago.

I did look up the gun and what the company threads with and not the same

Expert:  ProShooter replied 7 months ago.

Ok, it sounds like you may need to have it looked at by a gunsmith to have it gauged. It definitely sounds like a previous owner did something to the threads. If you can provide me with your city & state, I'll be happy to locate a gunsmith for you.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.

I do equipment and not an expert know something about threads there are a lot of odd ones out there

I thread pipes and things myself, theres a gun show comming up maybe Ill take it there, I do not think they will tel me anything. Maybe Ill get another barrel will check how much

Expert:  ProShooter replied 7 months ago.
