Who does threading with front sight set back?

Been out of the loop for awhile and need to have a factory barrel on a Ruger American rimfire cut down, threaded and the front sight set back. I can't remember for the life of me who does this service. Thanks in advance for recommendations

Every time I had it done I lost a bit of accuracy. Workmanship was always top notch but theres just something about that bump on the factory barrel. Won't do another one.

Not really looking for bench accuracy. Just more of a varmint gun out the window with a can. Shorter and super quiet is what I'm looking for.

Jim Pixley also offers this service. I have not used him on sights, only on threading a CZ barrel. His work was top notch and reasonably priced.

He is at: [email protected]

I do a lot of 10/22 carbines with open sights, - thread 1/2" - 28 x .400 long leaving front sight on...
Customer has choices, leave sights on or lathe them off....
I normally do not work on Ruger American Rimfires but do odd barrel threading on different brands... Only the barrel is mailed in - area to be threaded has to be at least a .600" diameter... No receiver...
Need .600 dia so there is shoulder to tighten against....
(example is a 77/22 skinny tapered 20" barrel has to be cut down to 16.5 inch to reach the .600 diameter)...

I had my MKII 6 7/8 inch SS barrel done by Jim at https://www.jpgrips.com/

He did the following:

Shorten to 4 1/2”
Thread & crown and make thread protector
Set the front sight back
Remove the warning on the barrel
Drilled & tapped for mount and installed mount

Jim did a great job on my barrel.

A local smith cut down a Marlin 22 and set back the front sight. Beware the sight base may not fit as well with the cut barrel due to a gradual taper and you may need to change the height of the front sight. There is a jig used to make scope screw holes that he used on the barrel to move the holes rearward using the original screw holes for indexing. It is possible.
