Use lithium grease on the threads (and on the "O" ring) and make sure the sight screw and front grip screw are loose before screwing the barrel into place.

You could also try loosening the screws around where the barrel screws in.
NASA and the Americans spent millions of dollars and hundreds of hours to develop a pen that would write in space.....The Russians used a pencil.

This happened to my brothers garbage BT-16 barrel kit. Im not quite sure what happens, but I think that all barrels need to wear in their O-Ring, so they dont end up in the same position. This happened to my Teardrop (very little but still happened), but i dont care cause theres nothing cosmetic on it.
