Those of you who have removed the standard handguards from your V22, will have found the trhreaded boss that it screws onto, with holes for two lugs(presumably for a wrench). Is this boss also the barrel retaining 'nut'? If not , is it just to mount the handguard on and there is a further threaded fitting behind it?

It is one solid nut. It is the barrel retaining nut and the handguard screws onto it. Hope this helps. Is yours stuck?

Not so much stuck as on backwards apparently..........but when I can get a tool of some sort on it, it might well be stuck.....................

I had a similar problem when I tried to remove mine. I used a strap wrench to tighten the nut to the handguard  and applied some penetrating oil on the barrel nut threads where it screws onto the receiver.  You may want to try loctiting the handguard onto the nut so that it will come off as one piece.

You need a spanner wrench. I do not remember the specific name of the one that has the pins sticking out of the side though.

Mine's on backwards, so the regular 3 holes for the wrench are against the receiver. However, there are two much larger holes drilled on the side facing out. I don't know whether they are standard or the dealer drilled them but I can make up something to fit them if I have to........

It can't be on backwards. The two holes are standard. There is a shoulder at the bottom of the threads that holds the barrel on. It can only go on one way.

Well now I am confused. Go up 3 posts to the pics and those three holes you see on the barrel nut are against the receiver. The two larger holes face out and are opposing..

The three holes are against the receiver on mine.  The two holes face out.  If your V22's barrel nut is on like mine then it is properly assembled.
