Added 3 additional photos to The OP that will hopefully give a better visual idea of the barrel locking arrangement.


The Barrel and Receiver are both stepped and recessed to allow them to interlock and prevent foreword movement of the barrel when installed. Also a single recessed locking pin in the receiver face and two index steps in the barrel, prevents rotation when installed. The mentioned locking pin is manually user controlled by a lever on the left side of the receiver. The arrangement of same allows the barrel to be installed from either of two positions and a 90 degree "Twist Lock" Rotation, to allow for quick installation or removal.
