    I'm interested in suppressing my p3at one day and was looking for opinions. Has anyone had any experience with that sort of thing, is it a realistic idea, would the gun cycle right with the extra weight on the barrel, is there enough metal to get a good thread job? Also I have in mind to use a regular 9mm silencer. I would appreciate any answers or opinions or advice very much.also would you need an extended barrel?

    As far as I know no one has ever really tried but the subject comes up every now and then.

    There are no aftermarket or threaded barrels so I really don't think it would be an option. I don't know to much about the subject so I'm not sure if it would work reliabily.

    Why not just buy a larger gun that could be easily suppressed? Wouldn't adding that much length take away the best thing about a P3, it's small size and light weight?

    For a variety of reasons, I think the P3AT is a poor candidate for suppression.
