I can get another one that slips over the BB Barrel,
but you still have to loc-tite it on there, and that seems chintzy to me.
A permanent solution would be to silver solder the dovetail block in-place.

Brazing / Silver Soldering
Silver solder requires temperatures of 600 o C up to 800 o C,
or in some cases, even higher.

The two usual heat sources are propane and oxy-acetalene ....
Caution: The heat of the brazing/soldering process
will harm the finish of the rifle barrel.

And, it is reversible.
