To be immune from external forces implies separation but movement of barrel and scope being aligned implies connection?

To the question b/
Of course the barrel harmonics will change but the barrel will be shorter with 10-12 cm so they don't affect anything so much, and they can be fine tuned if somebody needs this necessary. As I've mentioned, the barrel really begins more likely after the second support, that short part between the supports is many times stiff so we don't really have to care about it Because of the short length between supports the effects of RF change may be assumed to be negligable or unperceptable but they will be there, and mustn't be treated as a floating barrel, care needs to be taken to understand what the effects of this change are over a given set of operating conditions. Only the barrel after the secondry block if floating and allowed to resonate at its resonent frequency. .
Just trying to understand how you are going about this.
