Early production barrels do not contain the locating rivet in the handgrip assembly or the locating recess in the barrel. If you have this type of barrel, discard it. Do not repair. The hand grip assembly has a locating rivet positioned in about the center on the right side. The head of this rivet, on the inside of the handgrip assembly, enters into a small recess on the right side of the barrel.
7. Spread handgrip assembly away from the barrel sufficiently to release rivets from recess in barrel. Once released from rivet recesses, handgrip assembly should slide off under hand pressure.
8. Clean all the old adhesive from the barrel and dry thoroughly.
