Refer to Mike Brackett for confirmation.

Actually the wedge should never contact the rear of the arbor slot and should bear evenly on both sides of the barrel lug at the rear. The only way the wedge can affect the barrel cylinder gap is if the arbor is short and does not bottom out in the barrel lug. If the arbor bottoms out then the wedge can effectively lock the two assemblies together and as stated not have any effect on b/c gap.
