Default Gsg 1911 mod I'm thinking of will make it illegal

Hi I was wondering if I was to remove the cap on the barrel ( by gunsmith ) and purchased the adapter that is for the fake suppressor ( just the adapter that is on eBay ) and pinning that to the barrel and also pinning the cap that comes with it so that nothing has threads and so that it can not be removed would make gsg illegal?

I think this is a technicality issue. Having a threaded barrel is legal but having a handgun with threaded barrel is illegal. As long as you do not assemble the firearm while the threaded barrel is uncapped you should be fine. You can only mate the slide/barrel with your lower frame once your gunsmith has the barrel perma pinned.

Now legality aside, can you even field strip the GSG 1911 with the fake can on ??

The gsg will not be threaded at all, from factory it was but to be legal in Cali they pinned the cap on it which is what I will be doing as we'll but with the adapter. The adapter also comes with a cap that will also be pinned so that nothing will be removed. It will look like if it had a 6" barrel non threaded cause everything will be pinned. Not planning on a fake suppressor would like to some how add a cool compositor just for looks but don't like the bushing style that attaches to the slide would prefer if it was on barrel but with the laws here not sure if this would be ok

If the barrel is not threaded under the cap like you think then its a non issue.

The law deals with " A threaded barrel, capable of accepting a flash suppressor,
forward handgrip, or silencer."

Quote:
30515. (a) Notwithstanding Section 30510, "assault weapon" also
means any of the following:
[...]
(4) A semiautomatic pistol that has the capacity to accept a
detachable magazine and any one of the following:
(A) A threaded barrel, capable of accepting a flash suppressor,
forward handgrip, or silencer.

(B) A second handgrip.
(C) A shroud that is attached to, or partially or completely
encircles, the barrel that allows the bearer to fire the weapon
without burning the bearer's hand, except a slide that encloses the
barrel.
(D) The capacity to accept a detachable magazine at some location
outside of the pistol grip.
(5) A semiautomatic pistol with a fixed magazine that has the
capacity to accept more than 10 rounds.

I'm not sure if the barrel is threaded since the front looks like it has a cap but it doesn't come off as by law that barrel had to have a pinned cap to be Cali complaint and if that was the case I could pin the adapter to the barrel replacing the original cap and also covering the threads that the adapter has for the fake can.
