A poster asked for muzzle pics, will do this evening.If the rib is attached with screws, bend away. If not, install some countersunk screws at intervals then bend away. It probably won’t take much bending/flexing to fix the problem.
If that doesn’t work you still have the option of cutting the barrel. But The barrel shortening may only lessen the problem, not eliminate it.
A pro will do the work, don’t worry.
Shortening may not fix the problem. I have a new rear sight that I was going to cut the notch way over to the left, and I know that will resolve it…but I just don’t like the looks of that.
The improvement of handling is one of the driving factors here, and the originals were shortened due to barrel splitting at the end. I think it would make a great saddle gun, and be more useful to me than a poor handling wall hanger…
Appreciate everyone’s input.
