Kimber Threaded Barrel

I can't find it now but the other day someone posted asking for a place to buy threaded barrel for a Kimber. I was just looking on the Kimber site to see if they offered a 20% discount on parts like they did last year during Christmas, no luck.
I saw full size threaded barrels in 9mm and .45acp listed for sale. But in the description it stated "gunsmith installed part" what do they mean by that? Regular guy like me can buy one but must have a gunsmith install or only a gunsmith can purchase? What is the deal, has anyone bought one? I didn't even know they was listed on the website, I don't believe they have been available very long.
Listed price is $229.95. Could be a game changer.

I think you can buy one but they recommend a gunsmith to install. I’m sure if you want to keep your warranty they will have to do the installation. I guess the barrel needs to be fitted and for legal purposes they are recommending a gunsmith.

That's pretty much what I was thinking JC. I wonder how involved that would be and how much the gunsmith would charge for that service.

Buy it and try it. You may need nothing. OR look for a drop in barrel. That place I listed has both. Other than that, the barrel link might be the only thing needing adjustment.
Go go for it. Where is your sense of adventure?

Mmmm, I was hoping somebody else would buy one and give it a go. I still have not bought my 460 Rowland kit yet.
