Call the manufacturer or take it to a gunsmith.

I think you are in over your head and may render the weapon worthless.

If it's an Olympic made in the US (I realize he's in Italy) the barrel needs to be 16". If the flash hider brings the barrel to that length, it MUST BE permanently attatched and according to BATFE standards, silver solder is not considered permanent. The mark you found looks to be a plug weld, or a hole for the pin which has been driven below the surface then filled with weld.

Drilling out the weld will probably cost you more in drill bits and frustration than a new barrel. Just a thought.

the Oly was made in the usa in the 2006, i dont know if for the US market or for the export
the serial number start with a E letter...
it may mean export.. or not.. is only a supposition

i bought it yesterday here in italy.

about to have a new barrel... i cant.. here in italy we dotn have it on sale... and... buy it there in usa cost more in burocracy and papers than the real cost of the barrel....

I guess if you have the time and ambition you could attempt to drill it out, but I think Cane pretty well concluded that if you contact the manufacturer they could tell you A) If there was any difference in export models and B) How the flash hider is secured.

Your English seems perfectly fine to get the point across to a tech rep. Maybe email them if spoken English is more difficult for you?

guys
is possible that the pin is in the position number 2 so it pass near the barrel thread and not like the #1.. on top of the thread...

it explains why the hole is at 2 o'clock and not at 12 o'clock...
