But said "local" guy threaded the barrel off the OD of the barrel, and the bullet stuck a baffle or end cap of the suppressor. Verify, and re-verify the smith knows what they are doing.
NFA transfers are running 9 months, currently. Price secondary for purchasing a .22LR suppressor in my book. Its the lengthy transfer process these days that is painful. Last thing you want to have happen is wait 9 months for your can to show up only to end up with a cheap threading job via rough threads chewing on your can's internal threads over time and/or end up having a bullet destroy internal suppressor blast baffles.

Even factory threaded barrels w/ factory installed flash hiders(AR15's as example) can be threaded off axis as high precision is not needed for a bullet existing a flash hider that has lots of room on the inside bullet path/exit.

As the poster above said, it is so important that the barrel be indexed off the bore, not the outside diameter of a rifle barrel which often times can grossly be off axis. I know first hand as I had my Anschutz German high quality factory match barrel many years ago threaded for a suppressor. When it arrived post threading, noticed there was un-equal material thickness on each side(OD of barrel). It could clearly be seen/observed by the naked eye. Machine work is all about the set up/prep which high quality labor costs money.

Here are my friends fine craftsmanship skills once again(Tornado Technologies). A 10/22 takedown barrel, cut, thread, re-crowned and a knurled stainless thread protector fitted. I paid $109.00 + optional $17.99 for the stainless thread protector.

Been very pleased with quality and quick turnaround time with Aurora Tactical in Springdale, AR. You can find them on the web. I've had them do 4 barrels - picked up one last week. No flaws that I've found. Recommended.

I have the blued take down with the flash hider I don't like/need a flash hider on a 22LR and it just adds more than 2 extra inches to the barrel length. Where can I find a thread protector (blued) for when I remove the suppressor? Brownells doesn't seem to have them.

Try midwayusa.com
Search for barrel thread protectors and you will find some nice knurled 1/2 x 28 thread pitch ones for sale. Couple different brands as well.

Not to be a necromancer, but I also had Hanging Tree Armory do my 10/22 TD. They did a FANTASTIC job on the threading (and I had them chop it to a 16" barrel too, might as well, right?).
