I am  not a machinist, but I wonder if something similar could be used to remedy.  As you push in the barrel it would lock in position as the spring-tension ball finds the deepest part of the indentation in the barrel. Then you tighten the screw to make sure the ball is firmly pressed against the barrel.



EDIT:  While I was drafting this Ted just posted some details.  If the current setup works every time and only a very few rifles have these issues(?), it’s probably better to fix those few rifles instead of a new/re-design.

EDIT: added example of push-button telescoping handle for concept. It would need to be reversed and adapted for barrels.

EDIT:  added example link to where they sell them:
