“LIVIT”I would think it would really be a PITA in a springer or Gas Piston, due all the extra cocking mechanics, I really don’t see how it could be free floated.

I would say that the barrel on my Diana 34 is free floating. There is no attachment to the rest of the gun after the breech except for the pivot point of the cocking lever but that is not under any tension with the barrel locked up and it’s only 2 inches forward of the barrel attachment point. Changing my grip certainly isn’t going to change the barrel harmonics. The stock is attached to the compression tube behind the breech of the barrel.
