Fitting a barrel

Can a full size barrel be turned down to fit in a midsize slide? I want to have a threaded barrel and no one makes/has one. I can find a fullsize threaded barrel and curious if gun will work if the barrel is contour like the stock one?
Thanks
Roger

No, because the barrel is slightly bigger in diameter at the very end and if you install a full sized barrel in a compact slide, it will be a sloppy fit and very inaccurate.
