The BI 7-2,3,4 series use an engineering grade epoxy to secure the barrel to the receiver.
I do not know the source of the adhesive used by Izhmash.

When I first learned of this, I wasn't very confident in the technique.
Apparently, Izhmash has had good expericance with this process.

Perhaps the lack of recoil of a rimfire is the explaination.

NOOk22 for your application: Choose A Glue: Metal-to-Metal

I think Loctite 271 would work well.
OEM specified as 271

High temperature, high strength for heavy duty applications

Designed for larger fasteners 3/8" to 1" (9.5mm to 25mm)

Locks studs, bushings and large fasteners against vibration loosening

Strengthens slip and light press fits

Removable with heat and hand tools
