If I grind out one side of the indexing notch on the upper receiver, whats the best way to keep the barrel over on that side to correct the crooked FSB?

Thanks

Use a file to trim the side you need too. Once the barrel is where you want it, before you install the barrel nut you want to use a flat punch and peen the oposit side down , kinda smoosh it. Be carefull not to damage the threads too bad but it will hold the barrel where you want it.

If you're moving that barrel too much, make sure your bolt still slides properly into the barrel extension. At extremes moves, you can actually have your bolt hit the extension. How far that is, I don't know, but it is possible.
