that's why I bought a Trracer Barrel - the new Empire Trracers are cocker threaded w/ 1 inch OD for about the first/back 7inches... Other than it being a matte/dust finish (easily changeable), it's just as smooth as the stock pump w/ no slop. Plus w/ about 6 inches of porting it has a significantly different sound-signature than the stock barrel - not that I'm complaining (truth was I just didn't want to do this mod to the stock barrel and have it end up getting fubar'd)
I put up a WTB add and got a responce the next day for $25+shipping so w/ the $35 for the boring/beveling it was only $64!
Not the best pic, but it was the best I could get tonight
