Maybe I am also not reading things correctly but are you talking about using a longer take down screw to push up on the barrel from below?

If so that sets off alarms in my mind. Since my first days at RFC the accuracy gurus of the time and later all felt that if the take down screw hits the barrel at ALL it can really screw up your accuracy.

One of the first things I check on a new build is to make sure the take down screw does NOT leave a mark on the barrel after being torqued in position. Our original accuracy gurus like Big Mike and ChiefDave (who built or had built over 100 very nice 10/22s) always preached this problem.

I will not allow any take down screw to touch the barrel.

Of course there is always the possibility of all those folks being wrong and just passing along tribal info that could not be correct
Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.
