So, you either need to machine a shallow groove in the 10/22 barrel to fit or dremel off the locating "c" shaped ring in the M1 carbines barrel band.
Yep thanks already noticed that and have done the latter. I just can't figure out how to spread the grove where the lug used to be far enough to clear the dovetail. Thinking I might need to heat it up, drive a punch of the correct size with a taper to it in, and flash cool it. But then, of course, I've got a channel that's too large for the barrel. This is kinda a toughie...
