    a suppressor on a 238? Are you sure it wasn't a 239? There isn't enough meat to thread a 238 barrel even if you had enough length. Sig barrels are interchangeable in some respect and with some machining but the 238 is a 380 and the only 380 sig makes so a barrel swap is not possible. Got a link to this picture?

    Looks like you send them your barrel and they thread it for $180. http://silencertests.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=82549

    Good luck

    holy smokes. I dont know how they arent cutting into the bore. the 238s are very thin barreled handguns. The barrels are less than .500" OD and the bore is .355" thats less than .150" / 2 so less than .075" of metal to cut threads into. Must be some dang shallow threads.

    So their threading them to put a can on a gun that weighs less then the can. that'll be a goofy feeling set up

    Has to be another barrel, not enough on a stock one in length to thread.
