    That's it,my silencer is just a tube with a cut out that hooks on to the pin,just push and twist.

    Think you will find they were all 6ftb then converted to 12 ftb, the pin was for the extension tube for the foresight to increase the sight radius .

    Thanks for the info lads would it be ok to file it down a bit to free float the barrel
    When positioned at 12 o clock it touches the a frame at 6 o clock it rattles on the tube when handling the gun

    LG100 Barley twist

    LG 100 Barley twist were originally 6ftb converted to 12ftb for Field Target, the pin under the barrel is for the extension tube that came with the rifle when it was 6ftb & used for 10m shooting.
    The extension tube was there to accommodate the foresight which increases the sight radius which helps accuracy, the further the rear sight & the fore sight are apart the better ,although there is a limit.
    Regards Peter

    The Barley twist I had a while ago had a shallow hole where the pin had been pulled out, so pull it or file it if it is in your way.
