Default ruger 10/22 barrel not perfectly centered...

Howdy. Need some help with my Ruger 10/22 and a TacSol fluted barrel. I installed the barrel last night. When I was done, i noticed that the flute lines were not perfectly aligned with the scope base. As far as I can tell, there are no functional issues; the extractor clears the barrel's extractor channel without touch. However, knowing that it isn't perfectly straight bugs the crap out of me.

The barrel fits super tight. So tight, that I can't rotate it or pull it apart. Anybody got any techniques to either remove completely (so I can re-seat) or rotate it 1/8 of an inch clockwise?

you cant unless you weld and re-cut the dovetail that clamps the barrel , sounds 110% cosmetic and no issue with how it will shoot if installed properly ...

carefully clamp receiver in vise and heat receiver with a heat gun. at 180 to 220 deg. you should be able to spin the barrel. there is some adj. in the V block but might not get 1/8" but you can try!
I would loosen, but not remove V-block when moving/twisting the barrel

I would be most concerned with centering the extractor cut and seeing that the v block is sitting straight while tightened.
If the flutes don't line up in that condition, it's because they were not cut with regard to where top dead center of the barrel is.
Flutes are just cosmetic though so get over it...

Extractor cut is going to produce more of an issue then anything else.
Leave it alone or sell it an get something else as those flutes do nothing but look neat.

There is a tool to remove 10/22 barrels without damaging the barrel or receiver. All you gotta have is sufficient need to offset the cost:

Thanks for the help. Managed to twist it enough to make me happy. placed the receiver in a vice with just enough pressure to hold it in place. Taped up the barrel dove tale. Used an adjustable wrench to grab the barel dove tail. Light taps with an impact hammer. Funtion tested, all seems to be well. Thanks again.
