The Walker wedge is the odd one. The small spring on the wedge should be up so the wedge screw catches it and stops it from coming completely off the barrel lug. When inserting the wedge, if everything is fit correctly the nose should be flush or very slightly out from the side of the lug. As parts wear or from incorrect fitting, the nose of the wedge can protrude further and further. Ideally the arbor bottoms out in the barrel lug just as the wedge is flush with the side of the lug. Most all Colt replicas have a short arbor.
