Does anyone know why the 1928 Colt Browning Barrels are threaded at the muzzle, whereas, the 1917a1 barrels are not?

Thanks,

Chester

The fine thread found on the 1928 barrels are for a Colt blank firing device used with wood tipped blank rounds, the head space notches are for the coil spring loaded keeper on the barrel extension.

Thanks Mark!

I can now rest assure my 1917 barrels will work with my M1928 colt semi.

I use them all the time...no difference.

I appreciate Mark explaining those threads...I'd asked before and no one knew.

You can find photo and line drawing on page 27 of "Colt Automatic Machine Guns and Rifles" printed by Class Three Ordnance Fairfax, VA 703-378-9464 with out a doubt the finest book you can get on Colt machine guns. Rick from BMG Parts had them for sale, give him a call.
