Hello, I'd like to send my Sub 9 barrel away for muzzle threading.

Pretty much. But they may ask you to also remove the front sight.

4 screws and a collar nut. The trigger bar/spring will pop out as you separate the two halves, and is a balancing act to get to stay in place when you put the two halves together again. The hammer, sear, springs, etc are held in place by the safety lever and won't go anywhere.

What about swapping barrels?
As in, how does the barrel attach to the pivot block? Is it threaded with a locknut? Or pressed/permanently attached?
Be cool to get a .357 barrel for the Sub-9 Trifecta! 😎

Default Sub 9 Barrel Removal?

The barrel looks to be pressed without pin, but I can't tell for sure.

850sub:
Have the 9mm barrel rechambered to 357Sig, buy a new 40cal bolt head & heavy bolt, then have the new bolt head machined to match the ejector & disconnector paths.

Then find a Really Strong Buffer Spring to compensate for all that pressure.... (and fire it remotely just in case it blows up )
