help with bushing screw question

OK here is the deal. Been tinkering with the SS making her a bit more quiet. I removed the end cap, forearm and then decided to go ahead and experiment to see how hard it was to remove the barrel while I was at it.

On the left side of the shroud, the side with the power wheel dial, I removed the two long allen screws that go into the barrel bushings along with the two tiny ones on the underside of the shroud in the rail.

Barrel fell out easy enough, so installed everything back in the way they came out in order to start installing hair curlers covered with brillo pad. When I put the two long allen screws back into the shroud and got them tight, there is maybe 1/16″ of each head sticking out of the shroud. Seems like when I took them out, they were flush with the shroud. Is this normal or did I screw up something?

Anyhow, got the mufflers installed and all put back together and WOW, what a difference it made from not having them in the beginning. Just wandering about the allen screws sticking out a bit from the shroud.

OK guys, note to self here. Don’t be working on your guns when it’s 1 am and you’re very tired.

Got up this morning and figured out why the grub screws were sticking out the side of the shroud too far. Makes a big difference when you put them back in the way they came out.

Large screws go in through the bottom, tiny ones in the side…..not vice versa.
