If it wiggles, then it is only pinned in now. It will take a very close exam to find the ends.


...or chop it off. If you do, be sure to recrown the muzzle.

If it's pinned or permanently attached in any other way, it is far better to simply sell the barrel as is and buy what you want. You will wreck the barrel trying to remove it. If you cut it off, you will spend a lot more money having it properly rethreaded and recrowned. If you do cut, make sure it's recut and finished to a "standard" length like 18", 16" 14.5", etc. Not sure what type of shooting you do, you some people in your position cut the barrel at the end of the brake, so when it's finished it's an odd length like 17.5" or 19". They then pull their hair out trying to apply ballistic data calculated for 20" or 18" barrels.

ABSOLUTELY NO SIGN OF PINS BUT I AM GUESSING THAT THEY ARE PINNED IN LIKE THE
STOCK GAS CHAMBER AND WOULD BE VERY VISABLE. IT SEEMS TO BE PRESSED IN AND HAS MOVEMENT ONLY TWISTING IN THE ROUND DIRECTION OF THE BARREL
