Legal Mark 23 Barrels in Illinois

Hi, I have recently been considering purchasing a Mark 23 pistol, but there are restrictions in Illinois (where I live) for barrels that are threaded for a suppressor or whatnot. Actually, I believe they are completely banned.

I was wondering if there are replacement barrels for a Mark 23 that do NOT have the threads, and are flush with the slide in the front. If not, is it possible to just remove the threads by whatever means, and then recrown the muzzle of the barrel and complete any other modifications that would be necessary?

Lastly, I was curious to know whether or not a gun that usually has threads that have had them removed becomes legal, or does it remain illegal despite the fact that you have removed the threads?

Thanks in advance for your answers!

He made some, I think a couple years back.

I also live in IL, there is no ban on the barrel that I am aware of on a state level.

Is this an Elmhurst special law?

I was reading the laws pertaining to gun ownership at the FOID site, and it plainly said that silencers were prohibited. It didn't say anything along the lines of "but..." or "unless...", so I assumed that they were illegal.

Suppressors aren't allowed.
Threaded barrels are.

Wow! I must've read something incorrectly. Now that I look at the laws again, it only says it prohibits silencers, but not threaded barrels! Oops! ops:

Oh well, but I am still interested in the barrels I was talking about regardless of the laws.

Thanks anyway! :P
