You are going to need a smith to do it .
I personally don't like pre threaded and short chambered barrels because the thread fit is
allways loose and the chambers are hare to clean up without setting the shoulder back.
If you are going to have a smith do it get a barrel and have him chamber it.
He should have all of the reamers and head space gauges and that will save you some money
plus the pre threaded and chambered barrels are more expensive.
Just my opinion.
