Hudson Manufacturing has announced the availability of threaded barrels for its unique H9 pistol.

According to the product listing, the drop-in barrel sports a nitride finish and a 1/2 x28 thread pitch, giving users the chance to run the Hudson H9 with a suppressor or compensator.

“This drop-in factory barrel provides the opportunity to mount your favorite can for polite shooting or your favorite compensator for rude, but arguably more fun endeavors,” Hudson says.

The threaded variant of the Hudson’s patent-pending barrel design was tested under a high-speed camera. The test, the company alleges, showed that the H9 threaded setup “outperforms industry standards.”

If you want to attach a standard can, the H9 threaded barrel requires a Nielsen-type device. Furthermore, the company recommends subsonic ammunition for optimum suppression levels. It also suggests using 124 grain or heavier loads for the best performance.

The Hudson H9 debuted at SHOT Show 2017, quickly turning heads for its futuristic appearance and interesting features. Hyped as a marriage between a 1911 and striker-fired gun, the 9mm H9 features a 1911-style, single axis, straight pull trigger with an integrated trigger safety; uniquely low bore axis; VZ G10 grip panels; ambidextrous slide stop levers; reversible magazine catch; Trijicon HD front sight; double stack magazine capacity of 15+1; textured lower back strap made by Hogue out of G10 material; and a black nitride finish.
