    I was cleaning my K80 and noticed the lower barrel is loose in the front hanger. Is this normal?. Its a fixed choke barrel and I had Briley put screw chokes in it. The barrel is not loose at the mid hanger and not loose at the top hanger. Hopefully nothing is wrong. Thanks, Mike

    One reason most of them are like that is so that the barrel can elongate (rather than bend) when it heats up-

    the other reason is - its simply easier to change a barrel hanger
