How doesnt it fit?
Is it just the wrong size hole?

ditch it
it will save your barrel from the dreaded ring marks

just be careful not to smack it around when fitted

I run a PES T12 on two rifles now both with the bushes removed

get it drilled out about 2 mm bigger, then have a smith machine the inner edge for a oringbto fit in it, leaves no marks upon the barrel and protects the barrel from fitting marks,

done me this to my mod here for my new rifle.

sweet as

I take it that the supplying RFD just supplied the standard factory bush and didn't machine it to fit your rifle?

Just drill it out at home make the hole slightly bigger than the barrel 2 minute job. Or just use it without the bush.
